Migration can be VERY sluggish - Myanmar Forum
Yeah, it can be a bit of a slower, but others have said that they went through in less than 10 min - probably they were sitting at the front of the single arrivals, but when two full 330/777 arrivals, it will be 600+Pax. But I didn't stop it, but maybe 10-15 mins. When we first went through immigration, it took about twenty mins.
For the second year, it only took ten mins, but when we got off the airplane, we put on our ices. Flew in about 10x and were always very fast, never more than 10-15 min at most. While there are many immigration offices, only four people were on assignment at the moment.
Nevertheless, it did not take longer than 20 min (visa already in the passport). All my prior arrives were handled within five to 15s. Passed a few week ago in about 20 min, a lot faster than before. There was a visas in my pass, but it wouldn't make any distinction.
We had to have a 15-20 minute waiting time, which I don't think is so hard. Thumb high for the pace of immigration against a sluggish one.....
