Need a Visa? Get One in Bangkok in 8 Easy Steps 05 Feb 2014 Pre-trip Preparations | Beginners Guide | 0 comments

So you’ve made it to Bangkok and you still need a Visa for Myanmar. Not to worry, we can help you out.

What you’ll need:

  • Your passport
  • A copy of your passport
  • 2 passport photos
  • Visa Application Form (you can get this at the embassy)
  • Money
    • 810 baht for a 3-day visa (or “day after tomorrow” visa)
    • 1035 baht for Next Day
    • 1260 baht for Same Day (and you’ll need a copy of your ticket)

What to do:

  1. Wake up: The Myanmar Embassy opens at 9AM and, from our experience, getting there at 830AM will not really speed up the process. On this occasion, we entered the rmbassy around 10AM and submitted the visa application in about 30 minutes.
  2. Head to BTS Surasak and take Exit 3 to get to the Myanmar Embassy. When you arrive at Thanon Pan, turn LEFT to get to the entrance to the visa application area. If you try to get your visa from the door that’s facing the main street, you’ll have to pay more for an “express” visa.

3.  Once you enter, cut the line heading to counter 4 to get your visa form from the attendant there. (It might be nice to try to explain what you’re doing to the people waiting in line.)

4. Now you’re supposed to fill out the form and then wait in the line you cut earlier (the one heading to Counter 4) to get a number from the attendant to submit your form. However, depending on the wait, you might be able to fill out the form while waiting in the line. Don’t forget to fill out both sides!!

5. Once you’re reunited with the attendant, hand him/her your completed form and your passport. They’ll quickly go through it and let you know if you need to fill out anything further or differently. After that, they’ll hand you a number (a plastic ticket) and you can sit down.

6. There are a few different counters--for Thai citizens, Foreigners, and Business visas. The ticket will let you know which counter and what your number is. If you can’t understand the number announcement, there’s a bright red sign above the counters to help clarify.

7. Once your number is called, go up to the appropriate counter and let them know how fast you want to receive your visa. Once you pay you’ll receive a yellow slip of paper as a receipt and as your way to retrieve your passport later.

8. Return to the embassy on the date written on the paper between the hours of 3:30PM-4:30PM to get back your passport with your new Myanmar visa!  It'll make your day better if you arrive at least 30 minutes before the door opens again. The line to pick up the visas are always long, so it's better to get as close to the start of the line as you can. 

Tips:

  • If, for some reason, you forget the copy of your passport or the passport photos, there’s an enterprising van parked a little bit from the entrance to the embassy (marked by a bright yellow sign) that can help you get things in order. A copy of your passport is just 3 baht. We didn’t inquire about the photos, but they shouldn’t be much more than 30 baht.

  • For the address in Myanmar question on the form, have the address to your hotel handy, although any address seems to work fine.

Useful Information:

  • Myanmar Embassy is open for visa application:  Monday – Friday from 9AM – 12PM
  • Visa collection is Monday – Friday 3:30PM – 4:30PM
  • The embassy is closed for Thai holidays as well as Burmese holidays, so make sure you look at the calendar before you go!
