To promote travels and tourism in the country, the Myanmar Government eases visa processing for the foreign visitors. You can easily obtain Burma visa from the consulate or embassy in your country. It is useful to know that there are 2 types of entry visa, i.e. EVT VISA and PACKAGE TOUR VISA.

EVT VISA - Travelers can easily get this type of visa by applying directly to the Myanmar consulate in any country.

PACKAGE TOUR VISA

Good News:  Now you can obtain Burmese Visa upon arrival at Yangon Airport with a visa pre-approval letter, in case you have no sufficient to get visa stamp through the Myanmar Embassy prior to arrival.

You can apply for the Package Tour Visa through Royal Exclusive Travel by booking a package tour and send Passport details either by fax or by e-mail with the following information:

Visa Information


Tourist visas can be purchased at the airport for US$20 plus two passport photos. However you may find that the airlines have yet to update their information, so boarding the plane may be the biggest problem. At this time we recommend you organise your visa in advance.

There is a myanmar e-visa site which seems to have problems staying active, doesn't respond to emails and in general not very reliable.
In addition the airlines do not really know about it, it is very badly organised, so do not expect to board the plane if you have an e-visa.

Unless you arrange some sort of special tour or apply for permission in advance you will have to fly in and fly out.

We recommend to try and get your visa in advance and save yourself the bother of being turned away.

Tourist visas for Myanmar, with a 28 day validity, can be issued the same day when applied for from any Myanmar Embassy or Consulate worldwide.
The FEC currency exchange of $200 per person is no longer required.
