The cost of the Myanmar tourist visa is £74.95 per person. The Myanmar visa can be applied for online for a stay of up to 28 days. In this case, no visit to an embassy or consulate is required.
Mandatory application and payment before departure
If you are going on a holiday to Myanmar, you need a visa. Tourists for whom a validity duration of 28 days suffices can submit their visa application online. The application procedure takes place in two steps. The visa application has to be submitted and paid for before departure. Also check whether your travel plans meet the visa requirements of Myanmar. As soon as the application is approved, a confirmation is sent in the form of a digital PDF document. This document is also known as the “approval letter”. On arrival in Myanmar, the approval letter can be exchanged for a visa. Because the costs have been paid in advance, nothing else needs to be paid for on arrival. If you do not possess an approval letter on arrival in Myanmar, you will not be able to acquire a visa and you will be sent back to your home country.

Delivery time and urgent delivery
On average, the visa application is approved within one week. If you are in a rush to get the visa, it is wise to select the option “urgent delivery” in the application form. The average delivery time of an urgent application is only 24 hours. An added fee of £15.00 is added to the visa cost.
When submitting the visa application for Myanmar, the cost can be paid for with:
All prices include consular and service costs
As mentioned before, the total cost of the Myanmar visa is £74.95. This total amount is made up of consular costs ($50) and service costs. The consular costs are paid to the immigration service, and cover the costs of the assessment of the application. The consular costs are also a source of income for the government of Myanmar. The service costs, which are also included in the cost of the Myanmar visa mentioned on this website, cover the costs of the checking and processing of the application by one of our visa specialists. By extensively checking each application, including the provided passport scans and passport photos, frequently made mistakes are often quickly tracked down, so they can be corrected on time.
The total cost as mentioned above is all-inclusive; no additional transaction costs, administration costs or other fees are charged to apply for the Myanmar visa.
Delivery times are averages, not maximums
All delivery times of the Myanmar visa are expressed in averages. This is because all applications are processed manually, and no guarantees can therefore be given on the maximum processing time. There is also a possibility that an application is selected for an extended background check. In rare cases, this can lead to an application being processed for several days longer than the average delivery time. If you choose an urgent application, you can assume that the application will be processed within 24 hours by a visa specialist; often, this is already done within one hour, even outside of office hours, such as during the weekends and holidays. However, after the visa specialist has handed the application over to the immigration service in Myanmar, no further influence can be exercised on the delivery time and it can take longer than 24 hours before the application is approved, even with urgent applications.
