  • What is Stay Permit?

    Stay permits are issued in Myanmar for every foreigner who plans to stay longer periods with business purposes. Visitors as such need to obtain a business visa/ stay permit or both.

    Entering the country with business visa only will have you to leave the country once every 70days whether you have a single or multiple visa. Acquiring a stay permit is the best option for longer stays in the country as it will save you time and money without having to leave the country every 70 days.

    Those who entered with a business visa valid for 70 days can apply for stay permit and multi-visa in Myanmar after entering the country. When you apply for the first time, 6 months stay permit (multi-visa) will be granted and starting from the second time, 12 months stay permit can be applied, nevertheless, the grant for 12 months can still depend on the situation.

    The application period for stay permit is about one and a half months. Stay permit needs to be extended before 60 days of expiry. Please note that if you leave the country during the procedure, the application will be invalidated.
