In order to issue a visa, some Myanmar Embassies require a "confirmation letter" to confirm that visa applicants have pre-booked and pre-paid their travel arrangements in Myanmar. Please let us know where you intend to obtain the visa and provide us with your exact names (as per passports), nationalities and passport numbers. We will then fax or email our "confirmation letter" to you, enabling you to obtain your visa.

Large parts of Myanmar are open to foreign visitors. Access to some remote or border areas, however, is still subject to government permission. In such situations we will endeavor to obtain the necessary permits. Allow one month for procurement of such permits.
The special permit, which will be arranged by Real Treasure Travel where applicable, is only the permission to cross the border but not the actual visa. The Myanmar visa must be stamped into the clients' passports prior to their arrival at the Myanmar border.

Please note that a special permission is required to visit the above areas. The permission is granted at the discretion of the Ministry of Tourism and local authorities. To get the permission, they need a licensed tour guide to accompany you throughout the trip in that area and you need to book a pre-arranged tour as per the tourism regulations. Otherwise, the permission is not granted.
In order to apply the permit, we need the client’s full names as spelled in the passports, passport numbers and validity, nationalities and the occupation. We need to submit the copy of their passport to get the approval from the government at least 30 working days prior to arrival. It will take about over one month to get such a permit arranged.
