Myawaddy and Mae Sot immigration checkpoints are now open to those wishing to cross the border in Myanmar from Thailand's Tak province.
Overland travellers, who must have a current passport and visa, can now cross the border everyday between 6.30am to and 6.30pm. The immigration checkpoints are located at Thai-Myanmar Friendship Bridge crossing Moei River. Myawaddy, a small township sitting opposite Mae Sot district, is the gateway to Kayin and Mon states.
