He said: "This is a breakthrough for the industry. Although it is still at an early stage, (we think the VOA) will result in a tremendous increase in tourist arrivals in the near future."

Previously, visas must be arranged in advance before arrival; now it is issued within minutes.

It is also an improvement over the former arrangement that issued VOAs only to travellers booked on tours with a local travel agency.
