Myanmar has allowed foreigners holding its visas to freely choose to travel to the country via any of its six entry channels. 

The channels cover three land border crossings in Chiang Rai's Mae Sai district, Tak's Mae Sot district and Ranong's Muang district and three air entry ports through Myanmar's airports in Yangon, Mandalay and Nay Pyi Taw. 

A ceremony was held to launch the new arrangement at a border crossing between Mae Sai district and Myanmar's Tachilek on Wednesday.
