It is possible that you already have most of the documents since these can be obtained without any difficulty. Here is a list of what you need to provide:
Valid passport – first on the list is the passport which can be acquired easily. Make sure of its validity since an expired passport will lead to a rejected application.
Digital photo of yourself – it should be the most recent photo. Make sure that it meets the criteria (white background, no face gestures, etc.)
E-mail address – while the visa will be electronically linked to your passport, you need a copy to show at the immigration office in Myanmar. iVisa will send your evisa via e-mail in PDF format. It never hurts to have a spare so print a few copies so that you can put one in each bag.
Mode of payment – you will be asked to make the payment for both the visa and service fee for iVisa during the application process. You can pay using a credit or debit card. You can also pay through PayPal if you have an account.
