A visa programme would allow people from third nations to travel to Cambodia, Laos, Myanmar, Thailand, and Vietnam wit

Post by Adam Xie »

Khmer Time:

The 5th Cambodia-Thailand Tourism Technical Working Group Meeting which held in Thailand’s Trat province over three days, the two countries agreed to work together to facilitate tourist travel, particularly by promoting the Ayeyawady-Chao Phraya-Mekong Economic Cooperation Strategy (ACMECS) Single Visa scheme.

The visa programme would allow people from third nations to travel to Cambodia, Laos, Myanmar, Thailand, and Vietnam with a single visa.

That would be amazing. But as above how would they handle, well, everything. I don't see how it could work at this current time, but it would be great to see it happen.

Central American nations El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, and Nicaragua have a similar visa called the CA-4 - but yeah, they've been talking about one for SEA for years.
The idea that seeing the world is going from place to place to look at obvious things is an illusion natural to dull minds.

How different is this from the ASEAN visa-free travel scheme already in place? https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Visa_poli ... AN_members

This single visa program is announced every couple of years and it has yet to be implemented.

Oh. Thank you for clarifying. That would indeed be convenient to have.

In Asia it is all about getting money. When they realize they have to share visa money with other countries, they probably wont implement it.
