According to media sources in Yangon, Myanmar will introduce permanent residence (PR) system this year for foreigners, parliament sources quoted Minister of Immigration U Khin Yi as saying Wednesday.

U Khin Yi made the disclosure at the ongoing parliament session in Nay Pyi Taw when making discussions on the tasks to be carried out in the fiscal year 2014-15.

U Khin Yi also said the government will promote the system of granting online visa.

Since Myanmar introduced visa-on-arrival system on June 1, 2012, travelers from 51 countries have benefited from the system.

Signing of memorandums of understanding is being planned for granting visa exemption to visitors from 16 countries including 10 ASEAN member nations in 2014-15, he further revealed.
