Visa to Myanmar: what are mistakes often be made?

Visa to Myanmar - What are mistakes often be made?

What are mistakes that may be made when applying for Visa to MyanmarWhile applying for Visa to Myanmar, people may make mistakes, therefore we give out here several common mistakes or misunderstandings that they often make for you to avoid when applying for your Myanmar visa on arrival:

    1.      Wrong typo or spelling: Put your information wrong in the application form. For example, wrong name (sometimes not put full name as in passport --> wrong), date of birth, passport number, entry or exit date. In this case, you have to contact the Myanmar visa approval service provider to edit the information, or else you might not be allowed to enter Myanmar.

    2.      Date of arrival misunderstanding: many applicants think that the visa validity time starts from the date of their actual arrival in Myanmar, but this is wrong because the validity time starts from the arrival date you wrote in your application form beforehand, not your actual arrival date. Thus please be careful when choosing your arrival date for booking your flight to Myanmar.

   3.      Misunderstand of Applying for Visa to Myanmar offline at the arrival airport: if you think you may apply for Myanmar visa at arrival airport, it is wrong, because arrival visa to Myanmar must be applied online beforehand for Visa approval, then upon arrival in Myanmar, you get visa to Myanmar stamped into your passport at the arrival airport in Myanmar.

  4.      Misunderstand of getting visa to Myanmar at border: some people think that Myanmar visa on arrival can also be obtained at land border, this is wrong, because visa to Myanmar on arrival only works for those who travel by air to Myanmar.

  5.      Misunderstand of online service fee including of stamping fee: some people believe that the stamping fee is already included in the service fee paid online in advance, this is wrong. Those are two different kinds of fees. The online service fee is paid to the online agent for getting the Myanmar visa approval letter (for Myanmar visa on arrival) / or code (for Myanmar Embassy visa), while the stamping fee is paid upon arrival at airport in Myanmar directly to the Immigration Officers there for visa to Myanmar stamp (or paid at the Myanmar Embassy to get visa to Myanmar stamp at the Embassy). So please do not waste time on asking why fees are paid twice.
