Nomadic Boys: How to Get a Visa for Myanmar in Bangkok
We took a break from travelling for a month in Bangkok as a base to spend Christmas and plan travels for 2015. We stayed for a few nights at the excellent Lub’D Hostel and then rented a condo (with gym and swimming pool) in the suburbs via Air BnB.
Our first destination in 2015 was Myanmar, a country which only recently started to open up to tourism and is still doing so. Visa on arrival is still not fully available so we had to apply for our tourist visa for Myanmar before arriving. We also had to ensure we had crystal clear perfect new dollars ready for our trip.
Getting a Visa for Myanmar in Bangkok
You can apply online for an e-visa for $50 (around #33), or go in person to the Union of Myanmar Embassy and get it cheaper (810 bahts: around #16/$24). The tourist visa is valid for 28 days and is for a single entry. It is valid from your first visit to the Embassy and expires after 3 months from this date.
