Myanmar and Israel sign visa-exemption agreement for holders of special passports E-mail

Citizens of Myanmar and Israel holding diplomatic or other special passports will no longer need a visa to travel between the two countries, the Israeli Ministry of Foreign Affairs has announced.

Meeting in Nay Pyi Daw in June, officials from both countries signed the agreement, which was written in English, Myanmar and Hebrew. Under its terms, Myanmar diplomatic and special passport-holders are exempt from visa requirements and are allowed up to 90 days’ stay in Israel, and vice versa.

Myanmar’s Ministry of Foreign Affair Secretary Kyaw Zeya said that regular Myanmar passport-holders would still be required to obtain a visa to travel to Israel, although progress will slowly be made towards obtaining a visa-free agreement for all Myanmar citizens.
