How It Works
The Government of Myanmar issues two types of visas: An e-Visa (electronic visa) and a traditional visa stamped into your passport.
An Electronic Visa or "e Visa" is an electronically issued and stored authority for travel to Myanmar.
A visa is required for travel to Myanmar. Tourists and Business travelers can apply for the e Visa online before traveling to Myanmar.
This online e Visa replaces the traditional visas (commonly stamped in the traveler’s passport).
TravelDocs recommends applying for an e Visa if you only require a single entry visa for Myanmar. If a multiple entry visa is required please apply for the traditionally stamped visa.
Myanmar e Visas allow for a single entry and stays up to 28 days (Tourist) and 70 days (Business) from the date of arrival in Myanmar. It is very easy to apply for and does not require sending your physical passport to TravelDocs. It can be issued in as little as 1-3 business days (Monday - Friday) and is a cost-effective option.
A Myanmar Tourist e Visa or Business e Visa may be obtained by Travel Document Systems for citizens of the United States, Canada, Mexico, United Kingdom, Australia, and most other countries.
All other visa types should be applied for using the traditional stamped visa method:
- Business NGO / INGO
The Myanmar e-Visa is only valid for Travelers arriving to: Yangon International Airport, Mandalay International Airport, Nay Pyi Taw International Airport, Tachileik Land Border Checkpoint, Myawaddy Land Border Checkpoint, and Kawthaung Land Border Checkpoint. If arriving at any other port of entry or by cruise ship, you must apply for a traditional stamped Myanmar visa.
