Last Updated June 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.
Which nationalities are eligible for the Myanmar Tourist Visa?
Applicants from the following countries are eligible for a Myanmar eVisa:
|Bolivia||Bosnia and Herzegovina||Brazil||Bulgaria|
|Costa Rica||Cote d'Ivoire||Croatia||Cyprus|
|South Africa||Spain||Sri Lanka||Sweden|
|Switzerland||Taiwan||Thailand (Thai Citizens)||Turkey|
|Uganda||Ukraine||United Kingdom (UK Citizens)(British)||United States (US Citizens)(Americans)|
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.
What are the Myanmar Tourist Visa requirements?
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 passport-sized digital photo. 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 payment
We recommend that you have all the visa requirements handy when you start your visa application process.
How do I apply for the Myanmar Tourist Visa online?
Applying for your tourist visa won’t take you longer than 15 minutes. You just need to fill out an online form with your personal information and the details of your trip. Once you’re done, we will ask you to double-check that all the information is correct to avoid any setbacks in your application. After that, you’ll need to upload the supporting documents and pay the visa fee. Make sure that the scans of the supporting documents are clear and legible, as it is one of the main reasons for visa rejection. Avoid uploading blurred or smudged scans.
Once we receive your visa application, one of our travel experts will carefully review and make sure that there are no inconsistencies before processing it. If we find any issues, we'll reach out to you to fix them free of charge before processing your visa. You will receive your valid visa via email once it’s ready.

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.

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.
