Single ASEAN Visa To Boost Tourism Industry


Tourism is considered as vibrant industries in Asia. With great beaches, good food and friendly people, visitors from around the world come over and enjoy. Asian beaches are rated as the best in the world.  United Nations World Tourism Organization said that tourist arrivals in the region in 2015 reached up to more than 100 million, mostly in Thailand (29.8M), Malaysia (25.7M), and Singapore (12M).   Other Asian countries with large numbers of arrival are Indonesia (10.4M), Vietnam (7.9M), Philippines (5.3M), Cambodia (4.7M), Myanmar (4.6M), Laos (3.5M) and Brunei (218K).   ASEAN Tourism Ministers are optimistic that tourism in the region will continue to grow as they are developing linkages to the neighboring countries. With this, infrastructure projects are needed. For example, Thailand is developing their maritime tourism with possible links with Bangkok and Boracay in the Philippines.  Aside from infrastructure, ASEAN Tourism Leaders is eyeing for a single Visa to be used by foreigners to all ASEAN countries instead of obtaining ten different Visas when traveling.Similar to the Schengen Visa of Europe, they wish that the proposal will be approved sooner. It will take the time to be implemented because it involves countries with different foreign policies.  These steps to connect tourism industries of the ASEAN countries will benefit the region and promote tourism that will benefit not only ASEAN economy but it would also improve the lives of their citizens.
