Before we headed off to Myanmar, Catriona Mitchell and I found ourselves in a bit of jam. We just found out that the Myanmar embassy in Jakarta was closed for the week (Myanmar Water Festival etc) and we had to be in KL for a day before heading off to Yangon. Then we were given the option of getting our visa on arrival using the services of MyanmarVisa.com . To be honest we were apprehensive as we had heard all kinds of stories about difficulties and refusals at the airport. But we didn't have any options as we had to be there on time for the project. Already at KL airport we had to show all our papers for visa on arrival to the airline counter. By the time we landed in Yangon I was geared up for a long battle at immigration - I had a stack of papers ready, and my mobile phone was primed with a string of numbers to call. When I got to the counter, they asked me for my passport and I tried to show them all the documents. However the immigration officer says: "Thank you Sir, but your visas are ready. All we need is your passport".I was so surprised it took me a minute to realize that the people at MyanmarVisa.com had arranged everything already long before we landed. We had more hassle at the KL airline counter than at the actual immigration counter in Yangon airport! How smooth is that?
