Myanmar is still strict on the use of Internet and there are no mobile phones so when you go there you are heavily restricted. Perhaps thats why there's not a lot of foreigners about there certainly are plenty of eyes watching you. The average Burmese person are very nice and caring people but unfortunately the military are obsessed with not giving over the reins to democratic rule. You can obtain a multiple visa in Rangoon. 


Mae Sai has reopened for visas. If travelling to Myanmar you must  have a visa. In order to attract more foreign currency into the country by tourism the validity of the visa has in the meantime been extended to 28 days for decades only two week visa had been available. A Burmese embassy only issues a visa, if you can provide proof, that you have booked at least a few days accommodation in advance from abroad. You don't need a vaccination certification. Forget internet as the Junta have stopped any ISP working as theres still no Universities operating and no changes to democratic rule.

Burmese prefer tourists to book "complete travel arrangements" from abroad, visas can be obtained in Bangkok or via your travel agent in Thailand. Chiangmai flies direct to Rangoon.




Plan early and if you want to do your own visa then go to Bangkok. The application for a Myanmar visa can take one working day to stamp your visa & 3 working days to complete. You must provide the following information:

1. Name of the applicant according to the passport.
2. Number and valid date of the passport.
3. Date and place of birth.
4. Nationality and profession. 


PASSPORTS: Valid passport required by all to visit Myanmar. Passport must be valid for a minimum of 6 months at time of entry.


All internet connections in the country have been suspended by the authorities since 15 Dec 1999.If your matter is time-sensitive, please contact them via FAX as an alternative at this time. We hopefully expect that these local email services will resume soon? but sadly the way the Burmese junta is making money form the Wa & amphetamines are becoming endemic it could be ages.  However your mails will be downloaded and stored for future distribution when possible---so they say??.
