I'm British but live in Indonesia. I phoned the Myanmar Consulate here over 50 times (I checked my phone) over 3 days but nobody ever picked up. I emailed them and received this curious reply;
"this mail address is Fucked By Myanmar Muslim Cyber Force. Give back freedom for Myanmar Muslim people."
I finally found out on another forum the only way to get a tourist visa would be for me to fly 2 hours to Jakarta, stay there in a hotel for 3-4 days, then fly back. Obviously I'm not keen to do this.
I contacted both these companies but received no reply;
I successfully arranged a visa in advance when I came to Myanmar a few years ago with this company (they met me at the airport with my visa);
But now that website says this service is no longer available except for group tours, but I will be travelling independently. Anyway, that 'news' on their website is 3 years old.
I read on this forum that true visa-on-arrival issued by the Government is slated for the end of the year - but I've lived in this part of the world long enough not to trust such deadlines.
I've already booked my flights to Myanmar and my schedule doesn't allow enough time for me to visit the Myanmar Consulate in Singapore or Bangkok.
So, I'm really stuck. I desperately need a tourist visa as I arrive on January 27.
My question (finally): is there any reliable company you can recommend who can arrange a tourist visa for me online which I can collect at Yangon airport? I will be meeting my parents who are both in their 80's, flying in separately from the UK, so don’t want anything to go wrong.
Thanks in Advance.
