Myanmar (also known as Burma) is a beautiful country located in Southeast Asia bordering with Thailand, Bangladesh, Laos, India and China. Tourists to Myanmar are increasing day by day due to the good measures taken by Myanmar government. The Introduction of eVisa is an example, citizens of many countries including Pakistan can get eVisa online in order to visit Myanmar.
How did I obtain Myanmar eVisa?
I visited this website to apply for Myanmar evisa in advance, on the website, I read the instructions where it was written that the eVisa will take three days to process. But amazingly, I applied at night and received the visa approval in the morning via email, and I had a Pakistani passport. The visa fee is $50 for tourist visa and $70 for business visa.
The eVisa will be valid for 90 days, that means you have to use the visa within 90 days from the date of issuance, and when you enter Myanmar, you can stay for up to 28 days on this visa.
Please note, select the correct port of entry when filling out the online form, as that’s important. And after filling the form, do review it once for any correction. Book your hotel through Agoda.com, and then simply put your hotel address in the evisa form.
Upon Arrival in Myanmar
When you receive the evisa approval on your entered email, simply print that out and keep a copy of that with you at all times while traveling to Myanmar. After that, when you arrive at the entry port of Myanmar, present the evisa (print out) to the immigration officer, keep hotel booking and return or onward ticket with you, as the immigration officer may ask you for that. I was asked to show the hotel booking and return or onward ticket which I had.
Welcome to Myanmar
I stayed in Myanmar for only two nights and one day, and it was the best country I’ve ever been to. I have written a complete separate post on my visit to Yangon Myanmar, so you can also check out that to find what’s interesting in Myanmar, but honestly speaking, Myanmar is the best place in Southeast Asia in terms of Pricing and Honesty. Even the Taxi drivers are very honest while telling you the fare. 🙂
