Getting a Myanmar visas in Bangkok is amazingly easy when you know where to go. The Myanmar authorities started an offical website for obtaining a tourism visas on September 1, 2014. Your touristic visas can be applied for and paid via the website. At the time of the recruitment procedure, you must provide a photograph of yourself and evidence of your flight home address.

Please be advised that the permit will not be granted immediately - you will receive a permit notification by email within 5 working nights of your request, which you will submit to Myanmar Immigration on your return to Yangon and have your travel permit entered in your Myanmar travel itinerary. Also, please keep in mind that airlines' employees may not know the new on-line traveler visas and therefore are refusing to take your confirmation of your visas as evidence that you actually have a visas - which means that they may not let you on the airplane.

Instead of waiting for the opening of the message to receive the form, you get there early and then go down the road for 100 metres until you see a green label showing the copy store. You can have your pass and a few Bahts photocopied (I bought 12 for 3 copies).
Good thing is, they have air conditioning, and they have the shapes. That way you can get to your desk and fill out the form, put your ID cards on, etc. and be totally prepared when you get to the message - it is shit when you get the form and have to poo.
