Traveling to Myanmar on a Dominican Passport

By P. T. Freeman

I’m in Yangon, Myanmar after a long airplane ride across the Pacific from Canada and an overnight layover in Thailand.

Entering Myanmar on my Commonwealth of Dominica passport was uneventful, as it has been for most other countries I have entered using it.  Since Dominica is a small, peaceful country, it doesn’t draw undue attention—or hostility—as the U.S. passport I once carried does.  I find I’m much more free and inconspicuous while traveling on a Dominica passport.
