Getting a visa for Myanmar is no longer a hassle as it used to be. Of course, this applies only to Czechs who qualify for an electronic visa, but the list of eligible nationalities keeps on growing. If you wish to find out if you are among those eligible nationalities, all you have to do is go to iVisa’s website and use the Visa Checker. It will tell you in just a second if you qualify for a Myanmar evisa or not. If you do, count yourself as lucky. You are no longer required to go to an embassy to get your documents. The application process is entirely online, and it should take you about 10 to 20 minutes to complete.
What do you need?
Before moving on to the application form, it is best if you gather everything you need. It makes the process smoother. iVisa will handle all the bureaucracy and whatnot, but you need to provide a few pieces of information. Here is what you need:
Valid passport – getting a passport should not present any challenges for you, and if you already have one, make sure that it is still valid. An expired passport will lead to a denied application, and you will waste time and money.
Digital photo of yourself – the photo should be as recent as possible, and make sure that it meets the criteria (white background, no face gestures, etc.)
E-mail address – while the visa will be linked to your passport electronically, you need a copy to show at the immigration office in Myanmar. iVisa will send you one via e-mail in PDF format. Print a few copies so that you can put one in each bag. It never hurts to have a spare.
Means of payment – during the application process, you will be asked to make the payment for both the visa and service fee for iVisa. You can do that using a credit or debit card, and if you have Paypal, you can use that too.
Myanmar evisa – processing time and cost
Most Czechs are concerned about the cost and time it takes for their visa to arrive. It is a natural concern, and you would think that having someone else handling this type of situation would cost you a hand and a leg. You couldn’t be more wrong. iVisa provides excellent service at competitive prices. The cost of your visa is determined by the processing time you select. As for that, Czechs have three options:
Standard processing – choosing this option means that your application will be processed within three business days. It is the cheapest option you have. It costs only $70 (or the equivalent in your country’s currency.)
Rush processing – this time, your visa will be ready within two business days, and you will be charged $100 for it.
Super Rush processing – if you find yourself in a hurry or if you have an emergency, you can choose this option and have your application processed within just 1 business day. You will be charged $130 for this option.
The application form
Nobody likes forms, but the one provided by iVisa could not be more straightforward. There are three steps Czechs need to complete, and if you find yourself in need of help, iVisa provides excellent service 24/7.
The first thing Czechs need to do is fill in general information such as name, address, e-mail, passport info, and so on. It should take you about five minutes to do so. Also, Czechs must choose one of the processing times mentioned above.
The second step will ask you to make the payment and make a quick revision of the provided information in step one. It is critical to insert your info accurately. You do not want to go through the entire process again, do you? Not to mention that iVisa has a strict no-refundable policy after your application is processed.
The last step consists of photo upload and a personal questionnaire. Depending on your circumstances, Czechs will be informed of what exactly you need to upload. After all that is done, you can submit your application and wait.
The Myanmar evisa is valid for 90 days and allows a 28-day stay inside the country. However, keep in mind that there are specific points of entry Czechs can use. On an electronic visa, you can only enter the country through Yangon International Airport, Naypyidaw Airport, and Mandalay International Airport. If you go by land, you need to use the Tachileik, Myawaddy, and Kaethaung land border checkpoints.
