Applying for Myanmar eVisa is relatively easy. You can follow the guidelines through the official website of the Myanmar immigration department.
However, we do have some notes that you might want to keep in mind:
1, There are 2 types of eVisa: Normal Tourist visa (50 USD) and Tourist Visa Express Service (56 USD). If you need to go to Myanmar as soon as possible, you should go for the Express as the processing time is 24hrs. The normal processing time is 3 days.
2, You can use VISA, MasterCard, JCB or American Express for the payment. It is nonrefundable
3, Make sure you print out your eVisa and submit to the Immigration on Arrival. It can be black and white, as long as legible.
