E-visa system to be expanded to Mandalay, Nay Pyi Taw airports

The e-visa system will be expanded from Yangon International Airport to airports in Mandalay and Nay Pyi Taw, Minister for Immigration and Population Khin Yi said, though he did not provide the exact date of when this will happen.

The e-visa system was launched at Yangon International Airport on September 1, and was used by nearly 1,500 tourists during the first month, according to airport officials. Tourists from the United States, the United Kingdom and Australia used it the most, although tourists from 67 countries can apply for them, officials said.

Once the online application and payment of US$50 has been made, an approval letter is sent by email within five days and this can be used to get a stamp on arrival at an airport, they said.

E-visas are so far restricted to tourists and have a maximum duration of 28 days. They are valid for 90 days from the date of issue. Business visas can only be obtained through embassies or upon arrival with invitation letters and other documents.
