Myanmar Eases Travel Restrictions

The government of Myanmar decided to lift more immigration restrictions. Tourists entering the country through Kawthaung are now able to continue their journeys on land and exit through any other border crossing, reports DVB (formerly Democratic Voice of Burma).

The website reports: "Foreigners entering Burma through three major border checkpoints along the Thai border can now travel inland and will not be required to exit the country through the same portal, in accordance with a new regulation passed by Burmese immigration authorities."
