ELECTRONIC TRAVEL AUTHORIZATION TO Myanmar

General information on eVisa Myanmar

September of 2014 has introduced us to the possibility of acquiring a visa to Myanmar through an online system. It authorizes travelers of certain nationalities to apply for an electronic visa online. Nationalities which have been included in the visa exemption, don’t need to apply for a regular visa at an embassy or consulate.

An eVisa to Myanmar authorizes a single entry on a country territory in either tourism or business purposes. Regardless of the cause, an eVisa, once granted, remains valid for 90 days from the issuance date. Tourists are authorized to stay up to 28 days, and business visitors must exit the country territory before the period of 70 days passes.

In order to get an electronic visa, you are only required to complete an online form. The processing time usually does not exceed the time of 72 h. Once your eVisa is approved, it will be sent to you automatically to the email address provided in the application form. Apart from the passport, you are obliged to carry a printed out visa with you to the airport. The customs officials at the airport will verify all the details.
