No Thai Visa Required – Citizens of Myanmar


I am a holder of Myanmar passport. I heard the news that citizens of our country will no longer require a visa to enter Thailand. When is the implementation of this new rule, and how many days can we stay in Thailand if we are traveling without a visa?

Citizens of Myanmar are now allowed visa-free visits to Thailand for up to 14 days if arriving by way of air travel into the country. The recent reciprocal agreement has been implemented last August 11, 2015 which also gives visa waiver privilege to Thai nationals who wish to travel to Myanmar for a maximum duration of 14 days.

At the moment, there are 23 airports across the Kingdom of Thailand where travelers may arrive via a commercial aircraft. The regulation, however, in all the land borders or immigration checkpoints remains the same as Burmese citizens are still required to obtain proper visas if entering Thailand by means of land travel from a neighboring country.

    Hello Thai Embassy,

    I am Myanmar Passport Holder.

    I will visit to Thailand for about 10 days which would be visa free. Then, I will fly from Thai to Korea. When I came back from Korea to Thailand, I want to enter Thailand with 90 days visa. How should I apply 90 days visa in advance : via Online ? Thai Embassy in Korea ? at Arrival ? Please advise most convenient way for me. Huge Thanks.

    • June 26, 2018

      If you want to apply for a 90day visa, you need to contact directly the Thai consulate or embassy of your residence. If you will apply in Korea and you have a proper visa to stay in Korea then you can apply it there.

      If you are holding a Myanmar passport, you need to apply for a Thai Tourist visa if you will cross the land border. You will get 90days entry. As soon as you enter Thailand, you need to apply for a re-entry permit so that you can go in and out of Thailand within 90days period. if you dont have a re-entry you will need to apply for a visa at the Thai embassy before entering the land border.

      Myanmar passport holder can enter Thailand under visa exemption for 14days via airport only. If by land border, you need to secure a Thai tourist visa.
      If your passport is expiring in 2 months, that will still work as long as your stay will cover the validity of your passport.

      You definitely do not need a visa. You can stay as a tourist for a maximum of 30 days based on your passport.​ You must show proof at the border that you will exit Thailand within the 30-day period, have accommodation for your entire trip, and, if requested, provide evidence of funds.

    Do I need to apply re-entry visa to come to Thailand? If yes, can I apply at Thailand and Cambodia border?

      If you will enter Thailand with the 14-day visa free entry stamp upon arriving through an international airport, you can apply for a re-entry permit at an immigration office as long as your next trip to Thailand is still within the 14-day period.
