Myanmar Visa

Situated on the most westerly point of the Southeast Asian landmass, Myanmar is one of the most physically diverse and beautiful countries in the region. It is a country of hills and valleys, mountains and beaches, temples and jungles. From its beautiful landscapes and rich history, Myanmar is a destination like no other, offering the visitor a veritable treasure of wonders and delights unmatched in the world today. A foreign national wishing to enter Myanmar must obtain a visa unless he or she is a citizen of one of the eligible visa exempt countries. However, according to the Ministry of Labor, Immigration and Population, it allowed 101 countries to get E-visa and 51 countries for visa on arrival. To obtain a visa, all visitors must hold a passport valid for 6 months.



Citizens from 8 countries do not require a visa to enter Myanmar for tourism and business visits for up to 14 days: Brunei, Cambodia, Indonesia, Laos, Philippines, Singapore, Thailand and Vietnam.
