Visa Help! (US Citizens)
13th April, 2014
We are both US citizens and are leaving for Thailand on May 5th. We plan to fly from Bangkok to Burma (Yangon) around May 27th.
The problem is, we have not yet obtained our Visa's to enter the country. We tried contacting the embassy but their office is closed until Monday 4/21.
It seems like the process of sending in documents and waiting to receive the Visa's by mail will take too long (10 days for processing alone) before we leave on May 5th.
Is there a faster way to obtain the Visa's? I heard it is possible to obtain them in Thailand too instead of the embassy in Washington DC? Thanks in advance for the help!

There is an article here: http://www.travelfish.org/blogs/thailand/2011/04/23/getting-a-visa-to-burma-in-bangkok/
Plenty of other discussions as well on the forum: just search "Burma visa in Bangkok" and you'll come up with a few posts.

I think it is best to get your visa in Bangkok. You need to get to the Embassy early and line up, or you can get a travel agent to do it for you. Maybe whoever sells you the air ticket could provide this service. More reliable than sending your passport away.
