We want you to pay the lowest possible rate for your room. If you have reserved a hotel room through Agoda, and then show us that you could book the same room, for the same dates, at a lower rate, that is viewable and bookable on another website, agoda will either match that rate or beat it.

Getting an eVisa through Myanmar’s New System 23 Oct 2014 Pre-trip Preparations | Beginners Guide | 0 comments

Is it time to get a visa to Myanmar, but have no time to go to the embassy? Myanmar now has the long-awaited eVisa system!

With the new system, you can get a Tourist visa (and only a Tourist visa at this time) that lasts for 28 days from your arrival date in Myanmar. Just make sure your pop-up blockers are off (they need them to give your receipt after payment), have a recent digital color photo ready (4.6cm (or 1.8in) x 3.8cm (or 1.5 in), taken within the last 3 months), your credit card, and, of course, your passport. (Make sure your passport is valid for at least 6 months.)

Some tips for your digital photo above, taken from the website. 

The process is pretty straightforward – tell them your information, pay the fee (Visa or Mastercard for USD 50), and wait for the email acknowledgement within the hour. Within 4-5 days, you should get an eVisa approval letter in your email to print out for your arrival to Myanmar!

A few things to note:

  • Make sure your information is correct! They can’t change it once you hit “Confirm”.
  • The USD 50 fee is nonrefundable.
  • If you’re looking for a cheaper option,  go to the embassy. In Bangkok, for about USD 27 (810 baht) or USD 35 (1035 baht), you can get a 3-Day Visa or Next Day Visa, respectively.
  • The eVisa approval letter is valid 90 days from the issue date.
  • The eVisa can only be used for a single entry. Any re-entry will need a new visa.
  • With the eVisa, you can now enter via Yangon International Airport, Mandalay International Airport, and Nay Pyi Taw International Airport. 
  • There is a small chance that they will decide, at Yangon Airport Immigration, that you aren’t allowed to enter. If that’s the case, you can return on the same flight.

All this being said, the eVisa is, currently, granted for 67 countries, with 5 countries (Cambodia, Indonesia, Laos, Philippines, and Vietnam) allowed a visa exemption for 14 days. To see if your country is able to apply for an eVisa (and it probably will be), check here: http://evisa.moip.gov.mm/NoticetoTourists.aspx

Just go to http://evisa.moip.gov.mm/NewApplication.aspx to get started!
