Burma (Myanmar)

Visa for Burma (Myanmar)

The country of Burma is also known as Myanmar. It is located in Southeast Asia, and it is bordered by such major countries as China, Bangladesh, Thailand and Laos. Millions of people travel there from all around the world, every year, for a variety of reasons. In some instances, they only make a small visit, while going on a tour of the Southeast Asia area, and in others they stay for extended periods of time, visiting loved ones or learning about the local history.

Because the country has experienced stunted economic growth, it is known for its preserved wildlife. Unlike in the United States, or other countries with an eye to development, the natural habitat has not become overrun by industry and growth. There are many reasons one might visit the country, despite its slow economic state, but to do so, a visa is always required. If you’re interested in traveling to Burma, first decide if the trip will be for business or leisure. From there, 24 Hour Passport and Visas can help you make it happen.


If you are traveling to Burma to do anything unrelated to business, you’ll want to obtain a tourist visa. Travel in Burma can be difficult, sometimes, especially when compared to travel in other countries.

First, there are security checkpoints at many tourist areas, so it’s important that you have your passport and visa with you, at all times, when you are there. Of course, they’ll also check your visa at every hotel, airport and train station.

Additionally, the Burmese government officials sometimes deny visas, when it seems as though the reasons for travel might be sensitive. For example, Burmese authorities don’t allow journalists in, willingly, because the country has a bad reputation, and negative reporting will only make things worse.

Finally, you’ll also be stopped at every exit point if you are traveling with a child, because abduction is a major problem, there. Officials might ask your relationship to the child you’re with, and documentation is recommended.
