Tourists will be able to visit five Southeast Asian nations on a single visa under a scheme recommended Monday at a regional business forum in Nay Pyi Taw according to the Global New Light of Myanmar on 23 June.

The recommendation was one of six made by the Ayeyawady-Chao Phraya-Mekong Economic Cooperation Strategy (ACMECS) Joint Business Council, comprising officials of Cambodia, Laos, Myanmar, Thailand and Vietnam, at the ACMECS Business Forum.

The recommendations were submitted for consideration of national leaders at the following day’s 6th ACMECS Summit in the Myanmar capital. U Moe Myint Kyaw, Secretary-General of the Union of Myanmar Federation of Chambers of Commerce and Industry, said the proposed ACMECS Single Visa Scheme would allow tourists to apply for a visa from just one of the countries and visit all five.

The Single Visa Scheme would allow tourists to apply for a visa from just one of the countries and visit all five. The ACMECS Joint Business Council urged all five countries to continue developing a framework to implement the scheme.
