Explanation Myanmar visa
All British citizens that are traveling to Myanmar in 2019 or 2020 must apply for a visa. Only inhabitants of Myanmar and a limited number of other Asian countries don’t need a visa to enter the country. The visa obligation therefore also applies to all British tourists, regardless of age. In recent year, it has become possible to submit the application online.

At the passport check after arrival, the actual visa will be affixed to the passport and stamped. All costs of the Myanmar visa are already charged during the online application procedure. No additional payments need to be made on arrival.
Validity of the visa
The tourist visa has a validity duration of 90 days. During this period, you can stay in Myanmar for a maximum of 28 consecutive days. Even travelers that arrive in Myanmar on the 90th day after approval of the visa can stay in the country 28 days from the day of arrival. It is therefore possible to postpone the final date of arrival after the submission of an application. The visa can be used a single time to enter the country.
