UK Passport Holders
A passport with at least 6 months remaining validity at the time of departure, together with a Single Entry Myanmar Tourist Visa, is required.
From 2 October 2014, an official eVisa service is now available to nationals of the UK (also the USA, Canada, Australia, New Zealand and Ireland and many other countries) for a fee of US$50.
Full information, and the online application form, can be found at the official Union of Myanmar Ministry of Immigration and Population website page on eVisas: http://evisa.moip.gov.mm/
There are 4 steps to obtaining an eVisa:
- Fill in the online form and upload an electronic passport-sized photograph (max 2MB and sized 4.6cm x 3.8cm the website has the facility to let you take an appropriate sized image if you have a webcam). You will be asked for the contact details of the agency you are travelling with please enter “KE Adventure Travel” and our main telephone number 00 44 17687 73966. If you are asked for your address in Myanmar, please add the hotel named in your Booking Confirmation (usually the Asia Plaza, 277 Bogyoko Aungsan Rd, Kyauktada Township, Yangon).
- Confirm your application and make the payment of US$50 by secure SSL server payment portal (Visa or Mastercard acepted)
- Await your approval letter (this should arrive by email within 5 working days)
- Take the approval letter with you to the airport and on arrival in Yangon present it to immigration officials to receive the official entry visa stamp
A Single Entry Tourist Visa (allowing up to 28 days in the country) is valid for three months from the date of issue. As processing the approval letter takes up to 5 working days (and can be interrupted by Burmese public holidays) we suggest you apply in good time, at least 6 weeks prior to departure.
It is very important you only try to make an application directly through the official website at www.myanmarevisa.gov.mm. There are other websites out there with similar addresses and we strongly advise you avoid them!
If you are a national of a country not yet approved for eVisa you will need to make your application through a visa processing agency or directly to an embassy of the Union of Myanmar. Please contact your local embassy for further advice.Print Page
