If you’re planning to travel through the beautiful country of Myanmar, you will need to obtain your visa in advance. Do as the budget backpackers do: go to the embassy yourself, don’t pay an agency a fee! It’s a straightforward process in Bangkok.
The Myanmar Embassy is located at:
132, Sathorn Nua Road
Phone: (662) 233-2237, 234-4698, 233-7250, 234 4789, 237 7744
The office is open for dropping off applications from 9:00am to noon and for picking up Visas from 1:00pm to 3:00pm.
A taxi from Khao San Road will cost you approximately 120THB (make sure they use the meter). It takes about 30-40 minutes to get there.
Application forms are available at the Embassy. You will need to provide the form, together with your passport, 2 passport photos and 1,300 THB. If you need the visa on a rush basis, you will need to show a copy of your flight details. The turn-around time is 2 working days.
Enjoy your trip through Myanmar!
