It is well-connected by bus on the Thai side and onward transportation when in Myanmar is also relatively straight-forward.

Kawthaung-Ranong Border Land Crossing

Kawthaung-Ranong Land Crossing which connects Myanmar’s town of Kawthaung in the southernmost part of Myanmar, in the Tanintharyi Region to Ranong Province in southern Thailand. If you are a beach lover, love to relax at the spectacular beaches and splash some cash at the border casino, Ranon-Kawthoung is the best border crossing from Myanmar to Thailand. This is also the most convenient crossing for people who are continuing to Myanmar from Southern Thailand. The boat crossing between the two countries takes around 20 minutes and there are regular boat services.

Htee Kee-Phunaron

Phunaron, located in Thailand’s province of Kanchanaburi, is a remote town with a border crossing into Myanmar. Crossing to Htee Khee, the nearest major town on the Myanmar side is Dawei, which is around a five-hour drive from the border. This border is most convenient for people who travel to Myanmar directly from Bangkok, Kanchanaburi province and are interested in seeing Dawei, Myeik, Mergui Archipelago and nearby virgin beaches.


Myanmar-Laos Boarding Pass


Myanmar-Laos Friendship Bridge opened in 2015 that connects Kyainglap in eastern Shan state with Xieng Kok in Luang Namtha Province. It is the only bridge crossing the Mekong River to connect the two countries. Now, the border gate between Myanmar and Laos has been upgraded and given international status, according to the Ministry of Labour, Immigration and Population. The ministry has upgraded the Wan Pong checkpoint in Tachilek, Shan State, making it an international border entry point for Myanmar and Laos. 

The Wan Pong checkpoint is the seventh international border gate where third-country national travellers with passports and visas can pass through after Myawaddy, Kawthaung, Htee Khee, Tachileik, Tamu and Rikhawdar in Myanmar.

The border agreement will allow citizens of the two countries and third-country national travellers to cross the border between Myanmar and Laos through Wan Pong with the necessary visas or passports.

There are no direct flights between Myanmar and Laos, so third country travellers have to pass Thailand either by air or land to enter Myanmar. Now, travellers who like to travel by land especially FIT travellers can travel to Myanmar without passing through the third country.


Myanmar-India Border Crossing

There are two open border crossings connecting Myanmar and India, Tamu-Moreh Border Checkpoint and Rikhawadar-Zokhawthar Border Checkpoint. 

The Tamu-Moreh Border Crossing which connects Myanmar’s town of Tamu to Tengnoupal district of Indian state of Manipur.

The Rikhawadar-Zokhawthar Border Crossing which connects Phalan District in Chin State to India’s Champai district in Mizoram. The border agreement will allow citizens of the two countries and third-country travellers to cross the borders between Myanmar and India through the two gates by obtaining Visa and E-visa permit.
