Frequently Asked Questions
Byevisa wants all tourists to be confident about the process to follow to get their travel paperwork in order. We also understand that you may have other questions that need answering before you head off on your journey. We’ve taken some of the most commonly asked questions and answered them below.
Do Minors Need a Visa to Travel?
Minors who have their own visa or who are over the age of 7 need to have an eVisa in place before they travel. This can be applied for through the Byevisa website when you apply for yours.
If a minor is under 7 years of age, they are able to travel without a visa as long as they are with their parents, on their parent’s passport and named on their parent’s eVisa.
Can I Use a Myanmar eVisa If I Am Going on a Cruise?
There are various cruise options available for tourists, but these are not covered by the e-Visa system. Instead, your tour operator needs to apply for the relevant documentation should you wish to enter the country through a seaport.
If you arrive at a seaport with an e-Visa, you will not be admitted into the country, so it is important to check that your cruise tour operator has applied for the right documentation before you leave.
When Should I Apply for My Myanmar Visa for Malaysians?
It is important to note that your eVisa is only valid for 90 days from the date it is issued. Therefore, it is important to apply in time for your trip. However, don’t apply so early that your travel dates are past the dates on your travel authorisation.
Travelling soon and need to get your documentation in a hurry? Don’t worry, Byevisa offers 3 processing speeds to help you get your paperwork sorted in time for your trip.
