YANGON – Myanmar will be accepting applications for business e-visas starting on Friday, the Ministry of Immigration and Population said in a statement on Tuesday, Xinhua reported.

The move came after the country’s decision to lift travel entry bans starting April 17 in accordance with the Health Ministry’s COVID-19 rules and regulations.

The country decided to lift travel entry bans to assist the economic development of the state as COVID-19 infections and deaths have been on a decline, the statement said.

The Southeast Asian country suspended all new e-visa applications on March 20, 2020 following the rapid increase of COVID-19 cases around the globe.

Myanmar launched the online visa application platform (evisa.moip.gov.mm) in September 2014.
