Myanmar Visa

Contacting any Myanmar embassy either by phone or by mail usually ends up in fruitless results. Just turn up at the embassy in the morning with all your paperwork + passport photo. Your application will be accepted and processed immediately (Usually within 10 days). If London is too far for you to go you can organise a 'pre-arranged visa' 23 Jan 2012

I wrote Myanmar Embassy an email about the visa, here is a very helpful reply...

If you are applying by post, please make sure you use a secure or recorded service and you also have to provide a pre-paid SAE (self addressed envelope) for the return post. If unable to provide the pre-paid SAE, please ensure that you include enough fee for the return post (we would advise you to use the most secure class of post to avoid any accidental lost).
