myanmar visaYangon,Myanmar: Myanmar Visa:

According to Voice Weekly News Journal, the Myanmar government is testing E-Visa system and Myanmar Ease Net, who is currently managing the online visa portal system has invited visitors to test its e-visa website. This is encouraging news for people that are looking to get a Myanmar Visa via online application. At this time only foreigners visiting Myanmar can qualify for this type of online visa.  If the system gets the go ahead from Myanmar authorities, it’ll be the most efficient and effective way for obtaining a Myanmar visa (Burma) as tourists do not need to visit Myanmar (Burma) embassy abroad to get a visa anymore.

“If government allows e-visa system, I think there will be more tourists who would like to visit our country.   I am quite sure that the number of visitors will rise”, mentioned by an local experienced travel guide. “We have launched an e-visa website.  It is a beta testing period so there will be a lot of traffic to our website.  Currently we are holding a meeting in Nay Pyi Taw and cannot conclude yet what the decision will be.  We will let the public know when our website will come alive for the official usage” according to a spokesperson of Myanmar Ease Net.

It is known that applying e-visa will take two weeks and when it is approved, the visa will be sent to the applicant via their email.  Visa application fees will be deducted regardless of the application being successful or not, the Voice Weekly News Journal reported. “We will accept Visa Card, Master Card, American Express Card (AMEX).  When the applicants get a visa, they need to print out a hard copy and bring it along when they visitMyanmar”, mentioned by the Myanmar Ease Net.

The two week period to get a Myanmar visa may seem a long process however, for now having an online visa application for Myanmar is seen as a good step forward. At this time, it is known that the e-visa is only for single visit and will need to apply again if the visitor wants to re-enter the country. “This e-visa only allows tourists from countries which is currently stated on our website. We will not be able to process those from other countries which are not on the list”, told by the spokesperson of Myanmar Ease Net. So if you’re looking for a Myanmar visa online, you may be in luck soon!
