Myanmar Visa & where is the best place to apply for

 

For Myanmar visa the best and fastest visa application is at the Consulate in Bangkok, go there before 8.30 am, they open at 9, but usually there are plenty of people already waiting for a visa. To submit your visa application goes extremely slow. If you are lucky and pay the double visa application price you could get the visa the same day in the afternoon. But this is not for sure.

If you are again lucky you might get the visa the next day for Baht 1024,-. To get the Myanmar Visa after 2 days (normal) it's Baht 8xx,-

You can get tourist visa and business visa, for business visa you need a invitation letter from a Myanmar company, the prices range from about $ 25,- for a single entry tourist visa to us$ 200,- for a multiple entry business visa for a half year.

The usual way at Bangkok works like this,

when you approach from the Silom Road about 50 meters before the Embassy is a sign telling copy, go to the shop and have you passport copied they also will give you a application form together with 2 photos go to the consulate entrance.

To get it more quick a surcharge is applied, the figures are mentioned above. The consulate is at Pun Road Bangkok, a side road of Silom & Sathon Rd. use the Silom City Hotel to stay, that's just nearby. If you give them your papers in the morning they pass it back around 3.30 pm.

Check for MIA and Air Asia for a suitable flight to Yangon in the evening or the next morning, never buy a return ticket with Air Asia, since if you want to change anything they charge you a unreasonable high fee which is almost more as if you buy a new ticket. Several hours flight delay is very often, note that this is Thai Air Asia not the usual Air Asia.
 

If you are too lazy to go on your own or have a hangover from last night ask the hotel to call a service agency and they will do it for you. If you want to go to southern Myanmar only you could go to Ranong Thailand, take a longtail boat to Kawthaung. In there they give you a Myanmar visa for $ 10,- you can stay a couple of days, ask how many days. This is only valid for the city, they stop you when you try to exit into further up Myanmar, you cant circumvent this because there is road exiting the place only the coastal ship.
 

That's it until you will arrive at Yangon International Airport

In resent years some more airlines fly out of Bangkok, Thai International and Bangkok Air are good but always on the upper price level. MAI which translate to Myanmar Airways International is a good choice, for more check Myanmar Airlines.

 

When you arrive take your luggage - it takes a while - go out through the green channel, the custom people are very

friendly - don't listen to anyone who whisper all kind of nonsense and ask for a taxi, just scream ..taxi shila.. immediately at least 5 guys will run towards you, tell them you want to go to the Queens Park Hotel a budget hotel (about $ 35,-) - or to Summit Parkview hotel (about $ 60,-) and top level is Traders and Kandawgyi Hotel (over 100,-) , taxi fare is about kyats 5000,- or the equivalent in US $, more about hotels.

 

The exchange rate is about US$ 1 = 850 kyats - as of September 2013, but  this figure is not for certain, every moneychanger has a different rate, never change at the airport, they will give you a very low rate and keep in mind this can change every day substantially. Bogyoke Market is the right place don't use a bank just walk into the bazaar and check with a shop they will tell you where the money changer is. Don't listen to the guys running around and offer to change, they will cheat you.

And keep in mind two things, first if you ask anything, everyone will tell you - yes- yes - but yes doesn't mean yes !! its just bla bla to keep you happy. So if its something important ask at least 3 different persons and if they all say something different have it written down and signed.

One remark on departure,

if you bought anything of value like jewelry, antiques - Myanmar is a paradise for antique hunters - get a receipt this will prevent problems at exit.... comply with the law like in any other country and you wont experience something negative.

One remark at last... stay out of politics, if you have a uncontrollable pressure to satisfy your ego on political matters go to Washington or Brussels and demonstrate against their human rights violation - for a change - and leave the Myanmar's alone. On this planet there are at least 50 other countries who have a lower human right standard than Myanmar, but since those are friends of the US or Europeans no one bothers them. Have a look at our golden triangle page to get some knowledge what's on this.
 

Well, travel to Myanmar
