Starting from 1st December 2016, Myanmar nationals visiting Singapore will not have to apply for a visa under the 30 days visa exemption. Travelling between the two countries is also made easier on Singapore Airlines and SilkAir, who operates 20 weekly services between Yangon and Singapore, and three weekly services between Mandalay and Singapore.
“Everyone is excited about visa free and we are happy to further promote leisure traffic to Singapore with value-added programmes such as Singapore Explorer Pass, only for our customers. Now, even Myanmar nationals travelling en-route to other destinations can first stopover without visa, to shop or dine in the lion city” said Jeanette Lee, General Manager, Singapore Airlines.
Customers travelling on any Singapore Airlines or SilkAir flight can enjoy a special price of USD43 for a 1-day “Singapore Explorer Pass”, covering major attractions such as the Singapore Zoo, Sentosa, Gardens by the Bay, Singapore Flyer and many more.—GNLM
