e-Visa Myanmar 🇲🇲

former Burma

You can enter Myanmar via one of these 8 points: the airports at Mandalay, Yangon, Nay Pyi Taw or the borders at Tachileik, Myawaddy, Kawthaung, Tamu or Rih khaw dar. You must be out of the country at the time of application, and have a means of leaving the country (return air ticket, etc.).

The e-Visa is valid for tourist travel(28 days maximum and 1 entry per person). Travelers must hold a passport valid for at least 6 months from the date of arrival in Myanmar. Once issued, you must enter Myanmar with the authorization within 90 days. The visa validity period will then start from your arrival in the country, not when the authorization is issued.

Everything happens entirely online, so you don't have to send anything by post, and you don't have to go anywhere. The documents are sent once the form has been completed via a secure link. You will receive an electronic travel authorization (PDF), which you will need to print out and present on arrival in Myanmar.
