Did you know?

Singaporeans will need a visa for travel to Myanmar. But it’s really simple. You do not need to visit the embassy.

You can apply for an eVisa online, and it is really efficient. I got it done in just one day. The eVisa will be emailed to you and you will need to print the physical copy.

The eVisa processing fee costs USD 50 (about SGD 70).

Interestingly though, there are more than one website offering the eVisa service, so you should do a thorough check to make sure the website is a legitimate one.

Singaporeans with a visa are allowed a 28 day stay.

Citizens from Brunei, Cambodia, Indonesia, Laos, the Philippines and Vietnam have visa-free access up to 14 days.
