How to obtain a dive visa for diving in Myanmar (Burma)
If you like to join a dive tour to Myanmar (Burma), you will need a special Dive Visa, which allows you to visit the country for diving. This visum will be stamped in your passport by the Myanmar Immigration once entering the country via a liveaboard dive tour.
This visa has to be applied for by the dive company where you will join the dive tour with.
You can't apply for a Dive Visa at a Burmese Ambassy or Consulate. At the Embassies and Consulates you can apply for a Tourist Visa, which is not the same as a Dive Visa. A Tourist Visa allows you to enter Myanmar to travel inland via roads, a Dive Visa allows you to enter Myanmar by boat in order travel to and dive at dive destinations within the Mergui Archipelago.
Providing your details for a visa application
So if you like to join a dive tour with us, we will need the following information from you to obtain your dive visa:
- Personal details:
First name | Last Name | Gender | Nationality | Date of birth | Place of birth | Home address
Passport number | Place of issue | Date of issue | Date of expiry
As soon as we receive a booking from you for a liveaboard dive tour to Myanmar, we will ask you for these details. These details have to be sended, following new regulations, latest 10 days before the start of the dive tour, to the Myanmar Immigration Department, in order to prepare your visa prior to your arrival. Your personal- and passport details will not be provided by us to third parties.
You should also bring the following with you upon arrival
Before we will set off on tour, we will double check that everybody carries the following documents with them. These documents are needed by the Myanmar immigration when you arrive, so it is very important that you have them with you. Make sure that your documents are well ready and completely fine: not doing so may cause a big delay in departure.
- Your passport
You won't be allowed in Myanmar without, also not if your passport is at an Embassy elsewhere waiting for a visa
- 2 Copies of your passport
You do not need copies of your full passport, only 2 copies of the page with your photo and passdetails
- 2 Recent passport photos
Write clearly and without pressing your name and passportnumber at the back side of the photos
- The visa amount in cash
Please see the visa fee amounts for each tour within our Price List. Fees are accepted in USD, Euro or Thai Baht. The visa rates are charged by the Myanmar Immigration in USD. If you like to pay in another currency, please note that the Myanmar Immigration may charge other exchange rates as those used in banks. In Ranong it is not easy to get USD at banks, so it is better to bring these from elsewhere.
