Indian officials say President Abdul Kalam will visit Burma in March.
It will be the highest level visit from India since former Prime Minister Rajiv Gandhi traveled to Rangoon in 1987.
India has been among the international critics of the Burmese military government's crackdown on democracy activists, including the continued house arrest of Aung San Suu Kyi.
However, India also has natural gas interests in Burma and has worked to expand military cooperation with the junta.
Last month Burma participated in maritime exercises with India and four other nations. It was the first time in 40 years that a Burmese navy ship had traveled beyond the country's territorial waters.
