What are the requirements if I apply for an electronic visa?
You don’t have to deal with all the bureaucracy as iVisa will deal with it. You just need to provide a few pieces of information to help them get started. The requirements can be obtained without any difficulty. Chances are you already have everything you need. Here is a list of what you need to provide:
Valid passport – getting a passport should not be difficult for you, and if you already have one, make sure that it is still valid. An expired passport will lead to a rejected application so avoid wasting time and money because of this.
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 electronically linked to your passport, 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. You can also pay via PayPal if you have one too.
If I need to apply for this e-Visa, when does it expire?
If you apply for it, your e-Visa will expire 90 days after issued, so you can use it at any time in those days.
How do I apply for it?
You can rest easy that it is a simple process when getting a Myanmar visa for Japanese or any citizen who needs it. The online form is broken down into three steps which you just need to fill in.
The initial step will require you to input your general information starting with your e-mail address and name and ending up with your passport info. Doing so should not take you more than 5 minutes. Also, Japanese citizens must choose processing time. Read carefully as processing time will determine the cost of the visa.
You will be doing a quick revision and payment in the second step. Simply follow the on-screen instructions. It is important that Japanese insert every piece of information accurately when reviewing your information. While mistakes are common, please keep in mind that revisions are no longer allowed after your application have been processed.
The last step consists of a personal questionnaire and photo upload. Never expect the same requirements for everyone as some Japanese may need to upload additional documents. After completing the steps, just click on the submit button and wait for your visa to arrive within your selected timeframe.
