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 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.
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.
