How can I get Myanmar ( Burma ) Visa?
Every nationality need visa to come to Myanmar.
Valid Passport with Entry Visa is required for all travelers to Burma. Visa can be obtained at any Myanmar Embassy or Consulate abroad. Visa fee is about US$ 20 in local currency.
For the travelers who buy a tour from us and do not have time to apply for Myanmar visa in their own country, Visa on arrival can be arranged. We need a copy of the traveler’s passport, including information of his/her occupation, home address, nationality and Int’l flight details which should be faxed to us 15 working days before his arrival to Burma.
After the Visa is approved, we will inform your international flight to let you check in without Myanmar visa in your passport. Therefore, it is important for us to know your international (arrival & departure) flight number and your booking reference (PNR). Please bring 2 passport size photos, as there is no photo shop at the airport.
