Myanmar builds new border gate in Muse

Muse – Myanmar is constructing a new border gate in Muse in northern Shan State. Construction is about 50 per cent complete, sources say.

The new border gate is located in Special Economic Zone 1 in Muse, between Ho Saung village in Myanmar and Kyal Khaung in China.

“The construction is about 50 per cent complete on the Myanmar side, and we are expecting to finish all work in the middle of this year,” said Ngwe Soe, the project director of the special economic zone.

Myanmar and China have three border gates – Nan Taw Gate, Sin Phyu Gate and Mant Wain Gate. All three gates are open from 6:30am to 10:30pm daily. Cars owned by officials from both countries and battery motorcycles are allowed to use Nan Taw Gate. Small trucks and cars can pass through Sin Phyu Gate, and big trucks are only allowed to use Mant Wain Gate.

“Third party citizens can go between Myanmar and Thailand by applying with their passports. Officials from both Myanmar and China prefer to allow people from third party countries. The construction of the new border gate can reduce the delay currently affecting the three border gates,” said Ngwe Soe.

Tourists from third party countries can travel to Mandalay, Nay Pyi Taw and Yangon via Shwe Li-Kyal Khaung, which officials hope will encourage more tourism.
