Visa to go in Myanmar - Burma
have a visa to enter in Myanmar. You need to get your visa before coming in Myanmar or to prepare the documents and files you will need to get your visa on arrival. Anyway, you cannot just board a plane and think you will get a visa after your landing.
E -Visa :
Type of visa: Tourist and Business.
This is a new procedure and, at today (2018), this is best way to get your visa, either tourist or business. It is simple and fast.
Website :http://evisa.moip.gov.mm/noticetotourists.aspx. This is the ONLY official website to where you can get your E-visa. We have started to notice - July 2018 - a lot of private web site that propose services for Myanmar E-visa at a very high prices.... no need. Stick to the official web site.
For who: People from 100 countries for the tourist visa and from 50 countries for the business visa can apply on line.
For business visa, you will get only a single entry visa for a maximum duration stay in Myanmar of 70 days.
If you want to stay longer, or if you want other options (multi-entry etc...), you need to request your visa in a Myanmar embassy.
New Express E-Visa: Starting 1st April 2018, there
is a new procedure for the online E-visa. You get "Express" E-visa in 24h, even during public holiday, or during week-end. You just need to pay 56 USD instead of the regular 50 USD for the normal speed procedure. The Express E-visa is only for tourist, not for business visa.

Keep in mind that the Immigration may refuse to deliver a visa at the airport. It is not because you can have it, that you will always have it... (especially if you are not really doing only tourism....)
Request your visa in a Myanmar embassy:
This is the "normal" classic way to get your visa.
If you are a national from a country that cannot apply online E-visa, you must go to a Myanmar embassy to get your visa. It is the only way (there is always the visa on arrival procedure for tourist, but it is long and complicated procedure).
A special remark for Myanmar embassy in Bangkok: you can get a tourist (or business) visa at the Myanmar embassy in Bangkok, either the same day as the request, one day or two days after your request (if you do the same is almost double price than normal).
You need to arrive at 8H30 at the embassy (entrance 9h), with 2 photos ID and all necessary documents if you request a business visa.
You can collect your visa in the afternoon after 13H or 15H.
