Myanmar will grant visa-on-arrival to six more countries beginning Oct. 1 as a relaxation of restrictions on entry into the country, Xinhua reported.

The six countries are Italy, Spain, Germany, Russia, Switzerland and Australia.

Visitors from these countries will be allowed to enter through three international airports -- Yangon, Mandalay and Nay Pyi Taw as well as some designated border gates by paying 50 U.S. dollars as visa fee, said a statement.

Myanmar has granted visa exemption to Japanese and South Korean visitors as well as visa-on-arrival to travellers from China since Oct. 1, 2018.
