The Government of the Republic of the Union of Myanmar launched its eVisa (Electronic Visa) system in September 2014, to make it easier for tourists to visit the country. With this system, you apply for your travel authorisation online, answering some simple questions and providing a few basic documents.

There’s no longer any need for you to travel to the embassy, fill in lengthy forms or queue for hours on end. Instead, obtaining your pass is now straightforward. So you can get on with planning your trip to cities like Yangon and Mandalay!

Please note that the Myanmar eVisa is a Single Entry visa valid for 90 days (3 months) from the date of issue, for trips up to 28 days. This means that:

  • You can only go into and out of the country once, rather than hopping in and out repeatedly with what would be a Multiple Entry pass. So if you plan to enter Myanmar, exit to visit another country, then enter again, you’ll need 2 eVisas.
  • Your authorisation expires 90 days from the date of issue, within which timeframe you can visit for up to 28 days. Fortunately, this gives you some leeway from when you apply for your travel pass to when you intend to catch your flight to the country that used to be called Burma.

Myanmar Visa Application Process

To apply for a Myanmar travel authorisation with Byevisa, you need the following:

  • An email address, so that we can send you your approved Visa.
  • A few personal and passport details to fill in the online application form. For example, these include your name, birth date, and passport initial and expiry dates. Please see our ‘Myanmar Visa Forms and Documents’ section below for full details.
  • A current passport with at least 6 months’ validity from your date of arrival.
  • A passport-size colour digital photo, 1.5 inches by 1.8 inches in size.
  • A colour scan of your passport personal bio page.
  • A valid debit/credit card or PayPal account, to pay for your application.

  • Enter your nationality and destination country (Myanmar) into our eligibility checker below. We’ll immediately tell you if you can apply for this travel pass.
  • You’ll see the Myanmar government’s visa fee of 50.00 USD.

  • You’ll see Byevisa’s processing time to obtain your visa on your behalf. We offer 3 speeds, Standard (3 business days), Rapid (2 business days) and Highly Rapid (12 hours). Pick which service is best, depending on how fast you want your pass!

**Singaporean citizens can stay for up to 30 days without a tourist visa, and you can enter and exit from all the international checkpoints.

***Citizens of Hong Kong, Japan, Macau and South Korea are eligible to visit for up to 30 days without an eVisa, as part of Myanmar’s exemption Pilot Program. You can enter and exit the country via all international checkpoints.

Lastly, please note that if you’re travelling to Myanmar from a country at risk of yellow fever, you must be vaccinated. To see if this applies to you, visit the World Health Organisation’s website.

How Much Is a Myanmar Visa?

The Government of the Republic of the Union of Myanmar charges US$50 for this pass.

You also pay Byevisa’s fee to process your application for you. This way, you don’t have to travel to the embassy, fill in any laborious forms by hand, or wait in line for hours on end! Instead, you simply get your validated visa in your email inbox, easy-peasy.

How much you pay for Byevisa’s service depends on how fast you want your eVisa. We offer the following 3 options for this travel authorisation:

  • Rapid for US$55 per applicant. You receive it in 2 business days.
  • Highly Rapid for US$85 per applicant. You receive it in just 12 hours.

So in total, you pay the government’s charge plus Byevisa’s fee. With our Standard service, this would add up to US$75 (US$50 visa + US$25 processing fee), for example.
