You’ll be able to enjoy the traditional lifestyle of this charming country while you explore beautiful landscapes, sacred stupas, and Buddhist sights.
Below, you’ll find all the relevant information on how to complete Myanmar’s tourist visa application and all of the current COVID-19 travel requirements.
What is the Myanmar Tourist Visa?
The Myanmar Tourist eVisa is an official document allowing entry to Myanmar, issued electronically by the Government of the Republic of the Union of Myanmar.
Visa applicants need to fill out an online form and upload the necessary documents. Once the visa is approved, they will receive it electronically via email.
This electronic visa system has been available for travelers since 1 September 2014. Foreign nationals can apply for a tourism or business visa, without ever stepping into a Myanmar embassy. This streamlined system cuts out the time wasted waiting in lines and costly processes that were previously in place.
The Myanmar electronic visa (eVisa) is also known as the eVisa Approval Letter, and it is a mandatory travel requirement for foreign nationals from qualifying countries who wish to visit the Republic of Myanmar for tourism purposes.
Which nationalities are eligible for the Myanmar Tourist Visa?
Applicants from the following countries are eligible for a Myanmar eVisa:
|Australia||Ivory Coast||South Africa|
|Bosnia and Herzegovina||Kyrgyzstan||Turkey|
|Brazil||Latvia||Turks & Caicos Islands|
|Cameroon||Luxembourg||UK Virgin Islands|
|Cayman Islands||Maldives||United Kingdom|
Due to the current health emergency, travelers carrying tourist visas can only enter Myanmar through Yangon International Airport.
If you are visiting Myanmar via cruise or boat, please contact your travel agent or your nearest Myanmar embassy for a pre-arranged visa on arrival, as you cannot use the Myanmar Visa to enter the country via seaport.
How long is the Myanmar Tourist Visa valid for?
The Myanmar Visa is valid for 90 days after issued. It is a Single Entry visa and allows a maximum stay of 28 days in Total within the 90-day validity window.
If you already know your arrival date in Myanmar, you can start your visa application with iVisa and we will queue your application and initiate it at the right time so your visa is valid during your entire stay in Myanmar.
If you still don’t know the dates of your trip, then we recommend that you confirm them before applying for your visa.

To complete your visa application you will need to gather the following documents:
- Passport with at least 6 months of validity.
- A scanned color copy of the passport’s details page.
- A recent color digital photo (passport-sized). This photo cannot be older than 3 months - If you don't have a recent one, we also offer a passport photo service to obtain one in no time.
- Credit or debit card for the payment.
- The official Myanmar Inbound Travel Accident Insurance Policy for the entire trip. You can also apply for that document with iVisa here
