Last month, Myanmar introduced an exciting new and easy online e-visa system for travelers from 43 countries (with 24 more added in October). The fee is US$50 per visa and the process takes about 5 business days. The visa is valid for travel anytime within the first 3 months of issuance so it’s important to carefully time your application. The Myanmar e-visa allows you to stay for up to 28 days though the most popular itineraries tend to be around 8 to 12 days.
Nationalities that are presently eligible for the e-visa include:
Argentina, Australia, Austria, Belgium, Brazil, Brunei, Canada, China, Czech Republic, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, India, Israel, Italy, Japan, Korea (DPR), Korea (Republic), Kuwait, Nepal, Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Poland, Russia, Saudi Arabia, Serbia, Singapore, Slovakia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Turkey, United Kingdom, and the United States.
Interest in Myanmar continues to grow, with the main focus from our travelers on the months between November through February to escape the winter, however Myanmar is truly a year-round destination. Feedback from travelers visiting between April to September is even better than November, for example – we think it may be because November-February often attracts more casual tourists so experienced travelers can enjoy even more blissful solitude at the sites the rest of the year.
All of our Myanmar tours are private and customized. Online we have 2 itineraries to use as templates for your own tailor-made itinerary or you can book either of them “as is.”
- 8-day Adventure Myanmar for the more active traveler >>
- 8-day Myanmar Discovery for classic touring of the quintessential highlights >>
Note that, in addition to arranging your Myanmar tour, we can also assist with flights and travel insurance. The variety of nice hotels continues to improve as time goes on, with a nice selection of 3, 4, and luxury 5-star hotels to choose from.
