Visa to Myanmar from ThailandMyanmar Visa from Thailand
Thailand - Myanmar Frontier Forum - Myanmar
Hello I am currently in Myanmar and am awaiting my 30 days touristic visa in Myanmar, I plan to drive further north in May to change from Myanmar to Thailand, I had hoped to take the coach from Thailand to Myanmar overland, but I am fighting to find information about the simplest way to do this.
A few of the older information says that many of the passages have been closed without prior notification, but I'm not sure if this is still the case? hey Thomas..... your best wager is to take a coach from Chiang Mai to Tak, then on the Mae Sot - Myawaddy passage on to Myanmar, to Hpa-an / Myawlamyine, then to Yangon (Note: it seems that on even dates cabs run from Myawaddy to Hap-an, the other one on and on...
When you are travelling from Chiang Mai to the northeast and crossing at Mae Sai - Taichileik, you would have to take a local or Kengtung to the interior, because there is still no allowed shore trip further than Kengtung....or...if you want to crossing there, then look at the Golden Myanmar carriers (cheapest airline), as they fly 3 times a week from Taichileik to Heho and Lashio.
Hello, I told the Embassy in Aust. at the beginning of the year that I wanted to crossing the frontier in Mae Sai and then take a plane from Tachileik to Heho. It seemed to me that if I was booking with a group in Myanmar, it would be possible to continue my journey.
I did, however, recommend that I should travel alone and take a cab to the Aiport. Since I didn't want to take the chance of getting to the frontier and being denied access, I went back to schedule 1 (plane back to Bangkok from Chiang Mai & then to Mandalay by plane).
I' ve been reading a few blog posts where folks came to Thailand, but not the other way around. Honestly, I would not organize a visa with entry/exit via a country frontier checkpoint unless I had something wanted from the warranty e.g. writing deed from the embassy. The Embassy in Australia is not the best information resource for this checkpoint....this checkpoint is'open' at the same times as the Mae Sot Myawaddy, and the other 1 or 2...only the distinction is the restricted country trip you can make once in Taichileik.
Hello, went from Chang Mai to Chang Rai, from where you can take the coach to the frontier. When you cross on your own, you must hand in your pass at the frontier point. A replacement Myanmar domestic ticket will be issued to you, allowing you to move within a specific area and you must depart from your point of arrival, where you will be able to redeem your ticket for your pass and proceed with your journey.
There is only one visa in your visa (perhaps from the Bangkok embassy in Myanmar) that allows you to cross the borders - the visa is for admission only. We' ll be visiting Myanmar in March this year on a 28-day visa. We' re trying to be as effective as possible. This means not driving the same course twice.
Will it be possible to pass the northern Thai frontier and return to Thailand at another southern frontier? Please note: To enter/exit the northernmost Thai-Paik, Mae Sai-Taichileik frontier, a domestic trip from Taichileik or Kengtung is required, as there are no other roads except through an authorized agent and rental cars and drivers.
