Visa-free access to Myanmar for HKSAR passport holders
******************************************************

     The Government of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region (HKSAR) has received notification from Myanmar that the Tourist Visa Exemption Pilot Scheme of Myanmar was extended for one year until September 30, 2020. Under the Scheme, holders of an HKSAR passport do not need a visa for visiting Myanmar for a stay of up to 30 days.     An Immigration Department spokesman said, “Myanmar is along the Belt and Road. Under the Belt and Road Initiative, the extension of the Tourist Visa Exemption Pilot Scheme would bring greater travel convenience to Hong Kong travellers and strengthen the tourism, cultural and economic ties between the two places.”     Including Myanmar, 166 countries and territories have granted visa-free access or visa-on-arrival to HKSAR passport holders. Please visit the following website for details: www.immd.gov.hk/eng/service/travel_document/visa_free_access.html or scan the attached code.
