How do I apply for a visa to enter Myanmar?

You need to have a valid passport (validity 6 months minimum) and apply at Myanmar Embassies and Consulate General offices in many countries- See embassies address in Myanmar Embassies Abroad. You may also be eligible to obtain your visa online. Visit the Myanmar e-visa website for details.

There are two kinds of tourist entry visas.  EVT – Package & EVT – FIT (Foreign Independent Tourist).

EVT (Package) – valid three months from the date of Issue and requires a tour confirmation letter from an authorized travel agent of Myanmar.
EVT (FIT) – valid one month from the date of Issue but requires no tour confirmation letter. Both visas have same status and procedure on arrival at Yangon airport.
Requirements for applying tourist visa (except e-visa mentioned above)

  • Two completed application forms and one completed “Report of Arrival” form with a photo (approx 1.5″ x 2″) on each. Application forms can be requested from any Myanmar Embassy or down-loaded from a Myanmar Embassy website.
  • Provide evidence of your trip – copy of air ticket/ itinerary/ letter from the travel agent (required for Package Travelers only).
  • Send your application along with prepaid Self -Addressed Envelope (FedEx/ USPS-Express Mail/ DHL/ UPS/ Airborne).
  • Passport of at least 6 months validity with available visa pages.
  • Payment of US$20 per applicant for visa fee, payable to the Embassy of Myanmar in official check, company check or money order only (credit cards and personal checks are not accepted).

(Visa informat1on)

The Tourist Visa for independent travel is valid for a stay of exactly 4 weeks (28days).
The Tourist Visa for package travel is valid for 3 months from the date of issue, which cannot be renewed or refunded.

How about Visa on Arrival?

Visa on arrival can be arranged for those who live in a country where there is no Myanmar Embassy and Consulate General office and for those who are on travelling. We provide an on arrival visa application service for package tours.

Which is the best place to buy an international air ticket to Myanmar?

The best place to buy your International air tickets is at the point of origin in your country. Neither agents of Yangon nor agents from other countries are likely to be able to offer you better prices than local ticking agencies in your respective countries.

Can personalized services can be included?

Smaller groups will have better opportunities for personalized services. Upon request, we are happy to arrange the best available options.

What kinds of meals will be available during my trip?

Breakfast is always included when we buy a room. Most of International hotels provide buffet breakfast while smaller hotels serve continental breakfasts, such as tea or coffee, toast, butter, jam, juice, fruit and eggs.
There are Sino-Burmese restaurants, typical Burmese, and Shan food in the Inle Lake area.  European, Italian and Indian dishes are also available in many locations.

Do I have to buy local currency upon arrival?

It is no longer mandatory to exchange currency upon arrival in Myanmar, however credit cards are still not widely accepted, so it is recommended that you exchange some money for souvenirs, and other incidental expenses.  The currency exchange booth at the Yangon International Airport baggage claim area offers a competitive rate for most major currencies.  USD is accepted by many shops and restaurants, though the exchange rate offered may vary.

Can I use my ATM card to withdraw cash?

ATMs are starting to become a regular site in the larger cities, but are not yet available in many parts of the country.  It’s best to make sure you have enough cash on hand to get you to your next big city.  Note – ATMs in Myanmar only dispense Kyat, no foreign currencies.
