Like many other places in Southeast Asia, visa rules in Myanmar are subject to change without notice. As dealing with visas can be very challenging, you might like to check out our general visa section.
Entry to Myanmar
The latest regulations mean that there is currently no visa-on-arrival system in place although you can now apply for an eVisa online.
This means that you will have to fill in your information and pay the visa fee (currently US$50) online and then wait 3 days for an approval letter to be issued.
You then have 90 days to enter Myanmar and will be stamped in using the approval letter for the eVisa for a period of up to 28 days.
The eVisa is only available for entry through Yangon, Mandalay, and Nay Pyi Taw International Airports. It’s also important to note that tourists can only stay in registered hotels and guesthouses and staying with friends or in someone’s home is illegal.
Some ASEAN countries are able to enter for 14 days under a visa waiver program so click here first to see the visa eligibility regulations for your country.
There is no way of extending the eVisa and you will need to leave Myanmar and apply for a new one should you wish to stay longer.
Should you overstay on your visa, you will be fined $3 per day, payable when you exit.
