. The Myanmar visa is required for all South Africans wishing to travel to Myanmar.
Summary of the Burma (Myanmar) visas regulations
Subsequent Burma (Myanmar) information was for the end of 2017, beginning of 18, but keep in minds that the provisions may be subject to changes at any time and that our information is primarily for UK, Australian, New Zealand, Canadian, US and West African citizens. ASEAN visas are needed for all nations except those of ASEAN member states and are not available on arriving at an internation port or on shore through.
Applicants for Myanmar passports can then choose to apply for a prior type of travel permit at a Myanmar diplomatic mission or a local consular office or apply for an e-visa on-line. Recently launched, the e-visa substitutes the long-stay travel visum and seems to work very well. This system differs slightly from e.g. Cambodia's E-Visa, because if your job applications are accepted, you will get a permit which will be given to the migration authorities on your return against an entrance postmark.
The Khmer system does not have a cut-out visa.) An on-line traveler visas is $50, is for 28 working nights and lasts up to 3 working nights. There are no extra charges at the frontier. 1 or 2 leg expeditions are available at extra surcharge.
You are on the formal page for obtaining a student visas. You will receive a 1/4 page of your pass with the combination E-visa and the immigration stamps and a small immigration stamps on depart. An ordinary touristic visas, which is also good for 28 nights, will cost about $40 or the value in the local language of the countries in which you are going to apply.
Handling may vary from message to message, with some providing pick-up the next morning (for an additional fee), while others may take up to 5 business nights. Of course, it all the better depending on where you are bidding from and whether you have a Myanmar message at the end of your trip, but otherwise we cannot see any reason not to use the effective e-visa system, which we believe is valuable the additional few bucks.
In the past, we got them on the same date as the job applications, but as I said, they take up to 3 working nights. When you plan to depart from a shan state trip such as Tachileik, please ask us for a cover note in which you explain to the airlines/immigrants what you can show them in case they apply for a connecting airfare.
After all, if you are a regular traveler and your passports room is a problem for you, then, unlike most checkpoints, Burma's migration officers will put in and out exit punches over your visas, which can spare you half a page in the case of a poorly aligned postmark.
