Get a Myanmar in Chiang Mai Visas
Fortunately, we just opened a new consulate in Myanmar in Chiang Mai, so we thought we'd take our opportunities there and hopefully have an even simpler than in Bangkok. Myanmar Consulate is situated north-west of the centre of Chiang Mai and is within easy walking distance for most tourist areas. Your bidding times are 9:00-12:00 and pick-up 15:30-16:30.
and beckoned us in, the first thing you see is a plate saying you have to get a visa: Saw another pair reading the plaque, feeling desperate and then leaving after a short talk without entering to get their visas.
This is because they planned to go over land, and when you go over land, you don't want to hire a flight or a coach, you just go to Myanmar, which of course you can't hire in advanced. Of course, we are not trying to deceive the system and remain or work in Myanmar, we are tourist with cash to pay, just like the folks who come to Yangon International on weeklong packages with pasty labels like "Jewels of the Burmese Ancients".
Happening to come from Thailand, we spur it on on the route. They never asked us to make a reservation even though we had the adress of a Myanmar based property to make the request. Then I told her that we would go to Mae Sot and then take a tuk-tuk to the viaduct to go to Myanmar, she said: "It's okay" and the problem was solved.
Collection is the 2 nd date that does not countdown the registration date, so we handed in our passes on Wednesday and were asked to come back on Monday to collect them. The visa charge for 28 nights was 810 Bahts (about $23 USD), although it is possible to get more the same and the next morning.
All in all, the overall impression was much better than what we saw in Bangkok, the application/Dropoff took perhaps 15 min and the pick up took 5 min. So, my advise to anyone in Thailand who plans a trip to Myanmar = if Chiang Mai is on your route, then you intend to use the Myanmar Consulate in Chiang Mai as a better way to get a visitor's permit than the embassy in Bangkok.
