It is compulsory for visitors from eligible countries traveling to Myanmar, previously known as Burma, to present a visa at the port of entry. As of 1st September 2014, travelers from qualifying countries with valid passports may apply online for the Myanmar electronic visa, or eVisa Approval Letter, which authorizes travel to the country for tourism or business purposes.

Myanmar Tourist eVisa holders are allowed to stay in Myanmar for a maximum of twenty-eight (28) consecutive days from the date of entry.
Myanmar business eVisa holders are permitted to remain in Myanmar for a maximum of seventy (70) consecutive days from the date of entry.
