About the Myanmar visa

All British and European citizens that are travelling to Myanmar in 2024 or 2025 must apply for a visa. Only citizens of Myanmar and a limited number of other Asian countries do not need a visa to enter the country. Consequently, the visa requirement applies to all British and Irish tourists, regardless of age. The visa application has become available online in recent years. It is therefore no longer necessary to visit the Myanmar embassy in order to apply for a Myanmar visa.

What is the visa for Myanmar? The visa for Myanmar is an electronic document, also known as an e-visa. After your visa has been approved, it is sent to you by e-mail. Strictly speaking, the document you receive is not a visa, but a so-called “approval letter”. This is a confirmation which states that the traveller concerned will be allowed to enter Myanmar. The actual visa will be affixed to the passport upon arrival by a Myanmar immigration officer. You will pay the cost of the Myanmar visa during the online application procedure. No additional payments need to be made on arrival.

Validity visa

Validity period of the visa
The tourist visa has a validity period of 90 days. During this period, you can stay in Myanmar for a maximum of 28 consecutive days. Even travellers 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. This means that you can be a little flexible with your arrival date after you have submitted a visa application. You can use the visa to enter the country a single time. If you leave and want to return to Myanmar at a later date, you will need to apply for a new visa.
