Myanmar announces Strategic Roadmap for Tourism Recovery. The announcement was made by H.E. U Ohn Maung, Union Minister of Ministry of Hotels and Tourism in Nay Pyi Taw on 9th June, providing guidelines for implementation.

The Roadmap includes:

The Reopening Phase which will be short term and aimed to be implemented in June, July and August with Standard operating procedure (SOP) required for the health and safety of travelers and staff.

The Re-launching Phase which will be implemented within six months to a year and includes launching new marketing campaign and a long-term plan of reinventing Myanmar tourism. The government plans to create “travel bubbles” through bilateral agreements with Thailand, Cambodia, Laos and Vietnam when the country reopened.

The Ministry together with tourism stakeholders of different sectors are developing SOPs for Airports (International and domestic), Accommodation, Transportation and Food Sector. All travelling procedures shall be conducted accordingly.
