Myanmar Visa on Arrival by LandBurma Visa upon arrival by land
With the Myanmar eVisa at land borders - Myanmar Forum
I' ve been reading that you can now request a Myanmar visa on-line (from Australia). I' d like to arrange this before our November visit, but I can't find any information about the use of this visa at the Thai Mae Sot to Myawaddy checkpoint. eVisa travelers are currently only allowed to travel to Yangon International Airport, Nay Pyi Taw International Aiport and Mandalay International Airport.
To cross the frontier, you will need a visa from Myanmar embassies abroad. At the moment you can NOT land on Myanmar with an Evisas, although this may vary during the year. Marie....if you do not go to November, then simply request your Myanmar visa 4 wks in advance at the consulate in Canberra...then you can arrive at any of the open land frontiers.....
You are traveling from Thailand to India via Myanmar. At the moment eVisa can only be handled at the airports. It was very easy to cross the borders from Thailand and Myanmar. When there are other passengers travelling at the same times, you can split the cost if you go in the same area.
I' d think it would be more complicated to take a puppy to the airfield, as it would be transport and custom matters.
Burma will issue a visa upon entry and suspension of the system of specific permits.
The Myanmar authorities are prepared to issue a visa on arrival from 8 August by suspension of the specific visa previously needed for land-based travellers. Myanmar's authorities have chosen to take this move to encourage travel and enhance relations with other Southeast Asian states.
The Myanmar authorities are organizing an opening celebration of the "International Frontier of Myanmar-India" in the city of Tamu in Myanmar on August 8 to highlight this groundbreaking event, the preparations for which are almost complete. Myanmar's Ministry of Labour, Immigration and Population, U Aye Lwin, and the Consul General of India in Myanmar, Nandan Singh Bahisora, will participate in the event.
The opening celebrations will also be attended by four Manipur officers, among them Laxmi Kumar, Minister of the Environment, Traffic, P Vaiphei IAS General Minister for Textiles, Trade and Industry, and R K Shivchandra Convention Act East Policy Committee, Manipur. In the same spirit of fostering reciprocal trade relations and tourist development, India also began building an Integral Control Point (ICP) in Moreh Town, also known as the Eastern Gate of India but still fragmentary.
The Myanmar authorities are organizing an opening celebration of the Myanmar India Crossing on 8 August in the city of Tamu, Myanmar. By officially opening this itinerary, it will certainly improve the communications system and improve global relationships between the two countries, said R. K. Shivchandra, Convention Act East Policy Committee, Manipur.
As Shivchandra noted, the licensing system made it difficult to visit Myanmar. Though this issue will be made easier for Indians with the issue of E-visa in a shorter time, he said that the Act East Policy Committee will offer support for obtaining a visa in Imphal.
Former Indians who travelled to Myanmar had to rent a licenced leader, which cost about $60 per night, in supplement to the authority's land routing approval. However, this authorisation system would be abandoned on 8 August. "If you have a valid visa, you can get one within two working nights, less the cost of a specific land trip permit," said R.K. Shivchandra.
