NEW thread....Myanmar E-visahey everybody! as of today (5/11) the official government e-visa website appears to
be up and running.
if anyone uses this website to apply for their visa, could you please post your results?
info such as how long it takes, how much it costs, any difficulties, etc.
according to the main page, you may apply up to 35 days in advance.
(i'm planning to enter myanmar the first week of july, so too early for me to apply.)

3Just so no one falsely relies on this:
THE WEBSITE IS NOT LIVE YET. YOU CAN'T GET A VISA HERE YET.
I read an article last week basically saying that this site was still in a test phase, that it would first only be opened up to SE Asian nationals, and then eventually rolled out to all foreigners. Additionally, as henrike66 mentioned, you still get a message saying that it has not been officially launched yet.
Anyway, don't rely on this site for getting your visa yet -- who knows when it'll actually come live. I'm going in early July and sent my passport off to the embassy the other day...and then kicked myself when I saw this headline... but...it's misleading.

6This is good news. Pity for the photocopy store in Bangkok loosing there business.
The maximum of 30 days validity of the visa approval letter is a bit of a set back. I mean if you plan to wait for the approval before booking flights you have short time left. Maybe take the change.
Anyway, the promised process looks good.

7"What gave you that idea? "
they seem to have updated the update.....when i checked yesterday, the
'coming soon' banner had been removed. hit the apply button, which linked
to their application preview(?) page. it had a photo of a passport booklet
with some info on applying. that page is now gone, replaced with the
new 'coming soon' banner.

9assuming it won't be ready on time......the nearest burmyanmarese
embassy is a full day's travel from my current location. i know some
of the online travel agents can arrange a pre-arranged visa thingy.
you get a visa confirmation email, then get the official visa in your
passport when you arrive. i think they charge $50-70 for that service.
can anyone recommend one of these online agents? the service fee
will be worth it to avoid the trip to the embassy.
(...one that takes real credit cards...not paypal)

10I'm just going to send my passport & application in like I did the last time, too bad the bloody embassy in Tokyo took 16 days to process the thing...

12I somehow managed to find the application link:
You gotta go to "Immigration Rules" page, and on the right, "Apply Now " will take you to the above link...
But I never tried to apply though.
Good luck :)
