    Default India – Myanmar – Thailand, Asian highway section becomes operational: xBhp News

    The new Asian highway section connecting India – Myanmar – Thailand has been put into service. The Myawaddy-Thinggan Nyenaung-Kawkareik Trilateral highway section links India, Myanmar and Thailand.

    With the 25.6-km-long section becoming operational, travel time between Thinggan Nyenaung and Kawkareik will be reduced from three hours to 45 minutes.

    Myanmar Vice President U Nyan Tun, Thai Deputy Prime Minister Somkid Jatusripitak and Chairman of the Kayin National Union General Saw Mutu Sae Po attended an inaugural ceremony on Sunday, 30th August 2015.

    The 3,200-km road link from Moreh in India to Mae Sot, Thailand via Myanmar's Tamu, Mandalay and Myawaddy is a part of the East-West economic corridor of the Greater Mekong Sub region.

    The construction of the Asian highway section started in 2012 with the assistance of Thailand. This section will not only enhance trade between Myanmar and Thailand, but also contribute to better links among people in the region.

    Visa Information: Source (India to Thailand via Myanmar – Road Trip Itinerary - Drifter Planet)


    Myanmar: Evisa is possible for citizens of India, US, EU, ASEAN countries and more. Myanmar eVisa (Official Government Website)




    Thailand: Indians can obtain Visa on Arrival at the passport check point between Myawaddy and Mae Sot. The queues are usually long for the locals (Burmese and Thais) but there’s a separate window for foreigners with smaller queues.
