MBI Center offers a stay permit application service for long-term stays in Myanmar for business purposes. We will take care of the troublesome procedures.

What is Stay Permit?

Since there are no work visas in Myanmar, foreigners who are staying in Myanmar for business purposes for a long time need to obtain a business visa and stay permit. Some people get a business visa only to enter the country, but if you only have a business visa, you have to leave the country once every 70 days, whether you have a single or a multiple visa. Acquiring a stay permit saves you time and money without having to leave the country every 70 days.

Those who enter with a business visa valid for 70 days can apply for a stay permit and multi-visa in Myanmar after entering the country. When you apply for the first time, you can get a 6-month stay permit (multi-visa). If you plan to stay in Myanmar for more than 90 days, you will need to obtain a foreigner registration certificate (FRC).

The application period for stay permit is about one and a half months. Please note that if you leave the country during the procedure, the application will be invalidated.
