Online Visa for Myanmar available for Yangon -
soon for more Entry Points

An online visa service, introduced on September 1 in 2014, is currently only available to visitors entering Myanmar through the Rangoon International Airport. But this is going to change: Myanmars’s Ministry of Immigration and Population will begin issuing electronic visas for tourists at six additional locations, a ministry official told The Irrawaddy. The service will be extended to Mandalay, Naypyidaw and four overland crossings along Myanmars border with Thailand at Myawaddy, Tachilek, Kawthaung and Htee Khee.

Right now e-visa applications can be made on the government website of the ministry of immigration and population for arrivals in Yangon. Applicants must complete an online visa form and make a credit card payment for fees (US Dollars 50 per person). Those approved will receive an emailed document that they can print out and present to immigration officers upon arrival. After approval, travelers have 90 days to enter Burma, where they can stay for up to 28 days. Eligibility has expanded to a total of 67 countries at present.

Other possibilities to get visa:
