Visa to Myanmar and flight the same day - is it possible?Hi all,
Just one simple question - we're planning to apply for the visa to Myanmar in Bangkok Embassy and catch a flight to Jangon the same day (around 4.15 p.m.). Is it feasible option? Does anyone have any experience in this field? Of course we'll be in the Myanmar Embassy early in the morning.
Any comments will be appreciated:) Especially the prompt ones, as we have to buy tickets for Air Asia....

1I wouldn't want to cut it that close. Buy your ticket for the following day (and make sure the embassy will be open the day you plan to get your visa, there are Thai and Burmese holidays to consider).
Why not get your visa before you leave home? Then there are no hassles once you get to Bangkok.

I know it would be better to get the visa before, however we're from Poland and the nearest Myanmar Embassy in in Berlin... That makes the visa issue definitely more expensive and time consuming. As we're going to Bangkok in two weeks', I am afraid there's no chance to organize it this way...
On the other hand we'll have only 12 days for visiting Myanmar - (what seems to be like nothing reading the itinararies on this forum...cruel reality:(...) anyway that's why prefer not to loose another precious day for 'just in case' scenarioes...
That's why my question came from. Has anyone been in the same situation before? Is it feasible?
We're planning to apply for the visa on January, 16th - does anyone know if the Embassy is open that day?

4Thanks for replies to my question.
We managed to solve the problem - as it turned out during my conversation with Myanmar Embassy in Berlin it is possible to get a visa within the same day when you pay an additional fee of 5 EUR per person.....good advice to others I think.
So, we have a visa and don't have to spend three days more in Bkk, but fly the same day to Myanmar.
Anyway, thanks for you help and regards
