I'm in Chiang Mai and for various reasons (time here being precious! visa expiring on a Sunday), I'm considering the following plan for getting a Myanmar visa:
a) mail passport two weeks in advance to BKK travel agency
b) have travel agency apply for the visa
c) confirm successful application and pick-up time
d) pick passport up from travel agency on day of flight
Obv this plan has risks involved but, given that they seem moderate to me i'm willing to go through with it.
a) are the risks more than 'moderate'? am i being naive here!?
b) how much would a bkk travel agency charge for this service? anything above 2000 baht (in fact anything approaching that) for a two-week turnaround seems like a piss-take
c) could anyone recommend a cheap & reputable agency for me to contact?

1I do not remember the name of hotel now but it was in 2009, I was in the hotel nearby railway station in Chiangmai, very basic and cheap. They proccessed my visa application for Laos than. They had all the forms etc... I would say instead of sending your passport to BKK you must rather look for travel agents in Chiangmai, they would certainly take up the job for you...
