I am disappointed. Travelling to Burma September 2016 on an Aussie passport and was planning to get the 28 day tourist visa with an extension of another 28 days. The AU Myanmar Embassy informed me that they have been advised this month that no visa extensions will be possible. Is this correct? Is it just in AU before I leave that I cannot get the extension? What about in Burma itself? Recent experience? Ideas? Tips? I don't want to cut the planned trip back really. Thanks.

Thanks for the information on the 2016 costs for visas for Burma. I'll be a solo traveler in Thailand in late March, early April and am planning to get a tourist visa from the Burmese Embassy in Bangkok. I'll have to do it this way because I don't know when I'll be back from visiting Chiang Mai and Vientiane. I understand that it will cost a little more to get the visa if I ask for one-day processing. Any idea if it is still possible to get a visa in one day and how much that might cost. I read somewhere that this is possible. But it might be dated information.

Over here it state usd20 for the visa but base on the myanmar website it state as 35sgd for most nationality but singaporean only can apply via the website and the funny things is that it cost 50usd?

singaporean also cant do visa upon arrival so i dont understand why we have to pay double for it?
