Get your day tourist visa for Thailand in Yangon, Myanmar Burma! The entire process is easier than in other popular visa run cities. Add to that the fact that Yangon is a lovely place to visit for a few days. Make the most of it! Yangon used to be called Rangoon and is the gateway for most tourists visiting Myanmar. Myanmar used to be called Burma and the capital city was Rangoon. But the capital of Myanmar is now Naypyidaw. If not, you will be.

The airport codes RGN , language Burmese and currency denomination Burmese Kyat reflect the previous city and country names. Get your head around that in a hurry! But the information is valid for anyone who wants to get the day tourist visa. Yangon is a great destination and one of the best places to get a Thai Visa. Myanmar tourist visas cost a little more than the visa for many other SEA countries. However, the visa process is easy and Yangon is a city worth visiting. Closed to foreigners until the 90s, the country now welcomes tourism. Myanmar is one of the few countries in the world to offer eVisas to tourists.
Visit the official government eVisa site here. Fill out the form and upload a passport style photo with the following dimensions: 3. Scan or take a photo of your passport photo. That should work fine but make sure to eliminate glare and take a photo of the passport photo in natural light. You will get an automated response email informing you that your visa application is being processed. The actual visa process time is up to 3 days. I received mine within 24 hours.
Print out the letter of acceptance. This is important. A paper copy is all they will accept. If you don't want to go down the eVisa route or you prefer not to use your credit card there is an alternative. Head to the Embassy of Myanmar in Bangkok and apply for the visa in person. The closest BTS is Surasak.
The Embassy is open from 9 am to 5 pm daily but applications for visas must be made between 9 am and 12 pm. Bring your passport, a passport photo I recommend having a couple as backup , 2 passport photos, and your address in Myanmar. Your address in Myanmar should be a hotel or similar. Book a hotel before you visit the embassy and bring the hotel booking receipt as proof. Myanmar visa photos are of different dimensions to those of Thailand visa photos. Make sure you get the correct sizes. Stick one photo on the tourist visa application form and have the other ready to give to the immigration officer.
Same day visas cost THB But once you factor in the time spent at the embassy and the travel costs it looks less appealing. A next-day visa costs THB The advantage of getting your visa in Bangkok or from any embassy of Myanmar in person is that you can cross land borders to enter the country. The eVisa only works for flights to Myanmar. Make sure you're up to date with the holiday closing times for public offices.
Ignoring this step could cost you. Before you book any flights, check the embassy's opening hours and days on the public holiday calendar. Check for public holidays in Thailand here. This is the official Thai holiday list from the Yangon office. Note that the time difference is 30 minutes. If for some reason, you forget to print out your documents there is a printing service in the Amari Hotel across the motorway from DMK airport.
You can cross over via a bridge and the service is available from 6 am. Immigration checks at the airport can take some time so expect to be walking out the front doors at around 9 am. Grab a cab at the airport and go directly to the embassy. So it, er, pays to pay in the local currency.
If you decide to do the airport-embassy direct run, keep in mind that you might have a problem checking into your hotel. The Thai Embassy holds your passport for visa processing. Many hotels in Myanmar require a passport to check in. A way around this is to carry a good quality photocopy. But this might not work every time.
Check with the hotel in advance. Traffic is horrendous in Yangon so if you must go to the hotel before the embassy, make sure you have enough time to circle back before 11 am. With one two-lane road in and out of the airport, it's impossible to avoid delays. Pick a hotel near the embassy and the sights that you want to see. On the return journey remember to leave with plenty of time for catching your flight back.

AirAsia flies from Yangon to Bangkok daily at This flight schedule gives you enough time to get your passport at the embassy, do a little more sightseeing or have lunch, and then head to the airport. If you plan to spend only one night in Myanmar then this flight is very convenient. The airport in Yangon is lovely, by the way. In Laos, this process is long and tedious and made more difficult by the inconvenient flights from Bangkok.
Queueing on the first day might take hours.

In the hot season, this can be rather uncomfortable. The following day involves more standing around waiting while the huge queues are processed. I arrived at 9. The following day I returned at 1 pm and by 1. Most of the people in the queue looked to be Burmese. I was the only non-Asian. Even a chicken joined us in the queue. The Thailand visa photo requirements are as follows.
