Apply Myanmar visa online

Myanmar, formerly known as Burma, is the largest country in mainland Southeast Asia with a population of 55.6 million.  The country lies on the Bay of Bengal and Andaman Sea coast with Bangladesh and India to the west, China to the north, and Laos and Thailand to the east. Myanmar is mostly tropical and has three seasons: the hot season, the cold season, and the monsoon season.

There are several ways to apply to Myanmar visa. Since April 2012, travelers that require visa to enter Myanmar can apply and get their E-Visa in 4 easy steps online so you would not need to visit a Myanmar Embassy to apply for a visa:

  1. File in the secure online application form - Applicant is required to enter all the necessary information in the application. The Myanmar Embassy advises travelers to apply for e-visa at least one month before your date of travelling to Myanmar.
  2. Confirm and pay the processing fee - Applicant needs to recheck all the information is correct before proceed to the next step. Make the payment with Credit/Debit Card via eNETS. Acknowledgement email with application code will be sent to applicants.
  3. Receive an approval letter within 3 working days - Within 3 days, applicants will get visa approval letter via email. Print out the letter with barcode (black and white print is accepted but needs to be clear) and bring along with passport, then show them to Immigration officer at Myanmar arrival checkpoints.
  4. Receive your visa upon arrival to Myanmar - Upon arrival to Myanmar arrival checkpoints, present visa approval letter and passport to the Immigration officer to get passport stamped.

This online e-visa application only allows for a tourist visa to Myanmar. You are also required to travel with the passport for which the E-visa is issued for. If the visa application is not approved or visa expires without use, the processing fee will not be refunded.
