Chinese citizens holding diplomatic passports and special passports have been allowed to enter the Muse border gate (Nandaw Gate) in northern Shan State from 1 January, according to the Immigration and Population Department.
“Today is the day we granted permission for entry of Chinese citizens holding special passports through this gate as part of efforts to promote friendship between the two countries. We are delighted with the two countries. We want the citizens of the neighboring countries to enter with confidence. Special passport holders can travel from Muse to Mandalay. With this effort, economic opportunities will increase and the neighboring people can see the beauty of Myanmar, and the move can lead to the development of tourism,” said director of the Shan State Immigration and Population Department, U Win Lwin.
Diplomatic and special passports holders are allowed to stay in Myanmar for 30 days, and as they are officially permitted, they can proceed to other nations.
Plans have been made to cope with the expected higher entries of diplomatic and special passport holders from China, according to the Immigration and Population Department.
“With the entry of public servants and businesspersons holding diplomatic and special passports through the Muse border gate, bilateral relations and friendship will be strengthened. To grant special passports to the Chinese people, we would like to urge the Myanmar side to make further cooperation with us,” said an official from the Industry and Trade, Science and Technology Department of China in Ruili.
In accordance with the 1997 Myanmar-China Border Management and Cooperation Agreement and the 1998 Mutual Visa Exemption Agreement between China and Myanmar, Myanmar citizens holding diplomatic and special passports can enter China through the border gate from 1 January, 2020.—Salai Van Roh Htan (Translated by Kyaw Zin Lin)
