Myanmar grants more outbound tour licenses
Ministry of hotels and tourism has issued around 400 outbound tour operators in the country since the new type of license was introduced in late 2015.
State owned Global New Light of Myanmar reported that majority of the companies which expanded outbound tour services already have inbound licenses.
Health trips are the main source of the outbound tour business in Myanmar and Myanmar people mostly go to hospitals in Bangkok and Kuala Lumpur.
According to Union of Myanmar Travel Association, about 3 million Myanmar citizens travelled to foreign countries last year and there is great potential for outbound tourism in Myanmar.
