Learn More: Tourist eVisa

Last Updated August 2022

Myanmar is open for international travel, but before you can head over to this idyllic destination, you’ll need to learn about the current travel restrictions and the necessary travel documents you’ll need for your trip.

If your nationality is among the eligible countries, you can apply for a tourist or business visa online with iVisa.com, and visit Myanmar in no time. 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.

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.com 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.

Traveling with minors: Do children need to apply for a visa to enter Myanmar?

For minors over 7 years old, or for those who already have an individual passport, the parent or legal guardian must apply separately for their tourist visa.

  • The child must be accompanied by the parent/guardian.
  • The child must be included in the parent/guardian’s passport.
  • The details of the child must be included in the parent/guardian’s tourist visa.

In any case, you can easily add your child to your visa application process when you apply with iVisa.com.

Do I need a tourist Visa if I’m transiting through Myanmar?

Only if you wish to leave the transit area. If you remain in the transit area at the airport and have a valid passport and an onward ticket, then you won’t need to apply for a tourist or transit visa.

If you have a long layover or want to leave the transit area, then you should contact the nearest Myanmar embassy or consulate for further information about your visa needs.

What are the visa-exempt countries?

If you are a national from Brunei, Cambodia, Indonesia, Laos, Philippines, Thailand, and Vietnam, you don’t require a visa for a tourist visit of up to 14 days, if entering and departing from Yangon, Mandalay, or Naypyidaw International Airports.

If you would like to stay in Myanmar for over 14 days or wish to enter or exit from ANY of the land border checkpoints, then use our visa checker tool to see which visa you'll need based on your trip.

Myanmar has growing tourism, and if you were there a decade ago, what you find today is almost entirely different. That is because more and more people choose Myanmar as their destination, and capitalism is starting to get a grasp of the country. That is not necessarily a bad thing, but as you can imagine, it may ruin some of the things for many people, mainly locals. Even so, Myanmar is an interesting country to visit with plenty of attractions. You will like it there. The best thing you could do in Myanmar is backpacking. There is not much to do in just one place. You may be wondering when it is the best time to visit Myanmar. That depends on how much heat you can stand or how much money you are willing to spend. I say that because most people go there November through February. The weather is perfect during that period. However, the prices skyrocket. It is Myanmar’s busiest season, and as you can imagine hotels and attractions take advantage. There is nothing wrong with that. Every country does it. However, if you want to avoid all that over-crowding and the high prices, you can go to Myanmar in June. It is hot, to be honest, but at least the prices come down. June through November is the monsoon season, and nobody likes visiting Myanmar during that time. One thing that will throw you off when you get to Myanmar is the numerals. You will probably do not understand a thing. That is why you should always carry a business card from the hotel you are staying at. That way you can show the taxi driver where you are headed. The numbers on the buses are also confusing, but you can ask a local to help you out. A lot of people go to Myanmar for the temples and the pagodas. The country has deep religious backgrounds so you will see a lot of those. However, there are some things you need to know if you want to visit these religious sites. For one, you should never enter a temple or a pagoda with your shoes on. It is considered disrespectful, and you will not see anyone with their shoes on inside. Instead, you can pack a pair of flip-flops and put them on when you get there. You should have a plastic bag to put your shoes in while you are inside. Some temples have a designated place for people’s shoes, and you can leave them there without fearing you are going to be left without. Another thing you should know is that you should never eat, give, or receive an item with your left hand. The left hand is considered unclean. You will find this habit in many cultures, not only in Myanmar. Even if you are left-handed, you should make an effort and do most things with your right hand. It is a sign of respect. Also, when you are in a temple or a pagoda, you should never aim your feet at a Buddha. It is considered a bad form. But do not worry as you will have where to aim your feet at since Buddhas are not on all four walls of a room. Myanmar, while still a developing country, does have cell phones and Wi-Fi, but you will most likely lose your patience using the internet. It is very slow, even in hotels. You may have to wait up to one minute for a page to load, and that can cause you some frustration. If you need things like maps, for example, you should get an app that works offline. That way you will not get lost or have to wait forever for a map to load. Loading photos on social media is almost painful because it takes forever as well, so you may want to share your vacation pics when you get home. Another thing that you should keep in mind before going to Myanmar is to have cash on you. There are ATM, but they are scarce. Plus, the withdrawal fees are way too high. Moreover, most of the places you will find in Myanmar do not take credit or debit cards. If you are not from the US, you should exchange your money in US dollars. You will not find all currencies there, and you may end up not being able to buy anything even if you do have the money. Lastly, avoid exchanging your money on the black market. You may be tempted to do so because of the better rates, but you may end up with some counterfeit bills in your pocket, and nobody needs that hassle. There are some negative parts of Myanmar as well. For example, the people there do not sit well with hygiene or sanitary conditions. If you are a little squeamish, you may not want to go there at all. You may see rats running down the street, and people litter a lot. Nevertheless, this happens in the urban area more than in the countryside. If you want to go backpacking, you need to go through the cities, but you may want to close your eyes until you reach the location you want to see. The people in Myanmar are relatively friendly. They are just getting accustomed to tourism because it started booming in the recent years. However, you need to be respectful of their traditions and habits. Do not show your amusement when you see that men wear skirts, for example. You do not want to be that person. Also, you should never bring up politics into the discussion. Religion should be off limits too. If, however, a local brings up those topics, you should let them speak and lead the conversation. It is best if you stay out of it entirely. Overall, Myanmar is a country worth visiting if you want a new experience. Tourism is still developing, which is why you should not expect too much. The infrastructure is not complete, and capitalism is a new thing there. But even so, this country should not be overlooked when you are seeking new travel destinations.
