Steps to get a Visa for Myanmar trip

Getting a Myanmar visa is easier than ever thanks to the advanced eVisa system launched in late 2014. Now travelers can apply and pay online for tourist visas before they arrive.
Prior to the electronic visa system, travelers had to visit an embassy to obtain a visa. Myanmar is one of the countries where you must have a visa arranged before arrival, otherwise you will be denied entry and put back on a plane.
Despite the challenges of dealing with a military bureaucracy, Myanmar (Burma) can be an exciting and beautiful place to visit. The Burmese people are more than ready to welcome international visitors and want the world to experience its beautiful country.

Entering Myanmar.

Myanmar visa allows you enter only through three international airports.

The three airport list is listed below.

  • Yangon
  • Mandalay
  • Nay Pyi Taw

Or one of the three land border points between Thailand and Myanmar

  • Tachileik,
  • Myawaddy
  • Kawthaung

Travelers with a tourist visa can stay for 28 days.

You will be asked for your port of entry in advance in the application. Although technically it can enter Myanmar through any of the ports mentioned above, it will obtain an additional scrutiny to enter the country through a crossing other than requested in the application. There are several “restricted areas” in the country that tourists are not allowed to enter.

Cruising from Thailand to Myanmar by land became an option in August 2013, however, many travelers find that doing so remains a difficult endeavor. Before planning your trip around making a land border crossing, do some research to ensure that the border control points are not closed.
