MYANMAR E visaHi guys!
I don't know if someone already talked about this or not.
I heard that Myanmar E visa is going to start on April.
Visa will valid for 30 days, tourist visa, for who will stay in hotels during travel.
You can get more information at this site but it's still under construction.
In that site, they say :
"With the introduction of e-visa, foreign nationals who wish to travel to Myanmar no longer have to spend extra time and money for the visa application process. All the applicant has to do is to get online and submit the visa application in a few simple steps via user-friendly website."
I wish everything goes well.

2Erm montyman - how would a private company get a website address on the Government (.gov.mm) domain? Or does that sort of thing happen in Myanmar?...

3private company run as all are by some generals lackie or other the one you show is run by acompany called called easenet ltd
heres another one http://www.myanmarvisa.com/ for all intents and purposes looks like an official govt online visa
since becoming a democracy the leopard is changing its spots

4Montyman is right, the charge is $70.00. with email. I have checked out the Myanmar embassy in my country charging only $30.00. Everyone can spend money as they please or make the generals richer. It is a choice.

5the private companies are charging $70 service fee. the email i
received from netease said the official launch will be early april.
fees will be announced at that time. one would hope the official
government site will have reasonable fees. as of today, the
'fees' link on their site is still inactive.

8i'm not sure of anything, but the site has a gov.mm address. the 'about us' page says "...the Ministry of Hotels and Tourism has launched Evisa..." and says
the site "is one and only official government website in processing visa for
visitors to Myanmar." also see here: http://www.myantrade.com/xe/7404 and
i would bet EaseNet is just a web hosting service contracted by the ministry.

"In the initial period, we intend to issue E-visa for entry into Myanmar at the Yangon International Airport. We have planned to issue E-visa for other entry points into Myanmar at a later date."
could that mean e-visa for land crossings?

11hehe....not being a burmese official, i could speculate that perhaps
they could be considering opening 2 or 3 of the land border
crossings to tourist traffic -- following the example of cambodia
where e-visas may be used to enter/exit at some crossings.
i could also speculate that 'at a later date' could mean years.

13Before you old codgers all get carried away with dreams your unfullfilled, 60's hippy overland aspirations and wishing to get back into your old VW campervans to complete the London -Bangkok overland. And as alzheimers sets in Ha! Ha! just a small reminder that nothing has changed in Myanmar, Tan shwe's democracy rules OK
first lets appreciate what little he has conceded, to enable the generals and their brats, to retire safely with their expropriated $billionsand safe also from any human rights inquisition Ha! Ha!
