Could anyone verify this ? Which source ?
Thinking about heading into Burma late September. My plan is to enter Burma by plane from Chiang Mai . If visa on arrival is not an option is there a consulate or something similar in Chiang Mai where I could apply ?

Yes, the visa on arrival system has been suspended as of 1st September. You'll need to get a visa in advance either from a Myanmar Embassy or via a Myanmar travel agency (allow 3 weeks).
There is no Myanmar consulate in Chiang Mai so you'll need to get your visa in your home country, Bangkok or another regional capital. Call your chosen embassy well ahead to check on the rules as they do vary.
Now that the elections are over, has the visa on arrival been re-instated?
