To boost people-to-people relations with India, Myanmar will provide visa-on-arrival for Indian tourists, President Ram Nath Kovind said as he began his five-day visit to the country, NDTV reported.

President Kovind's visit to Myanmar aims to continue India's high-level engagement with Myanmar under the rubric of 'Act East Policy' and 'Neighbourhood First Policy'.

"Coinciding with President Kovind's visit, and to further people-to-people relations, Myanmar has also announced a visa-on-arrival facility for Indian tourists entering the country through the international airports of Nay Pyi Taw, Yangon and Mandalay," the president's office tweeted.
