Citizens of Vietnam and Myanmar can travel between the two countries without a visa as a bilateral agreement on visa exemption for ordinary passport holders will take effect October 26, according to the government website.

 

Under the agreement, the two countries' citizens who hold ordinary passports valid for at least six months will enjoy exemptions for entry, exit and transit visas of up to 14 days in each other's territories.

 

Those who want to stay for more than 14 days will have to apply for a visa.

 

The agreement on visa exemption for ordinary passport holders between Vietnam and Myanmar was signed between Foreign Minister Pham Binh Minh and his Myanmar counterpart U Wunna Maung Lwin in New York on September 27.

 

As of now, Vietnamese passport holders are exempted from visas to visit nine countries in the ASEAN bloc.
