I just wanted to post some up to date information about getting a visa for Burma (Myanmar) in Kuala Lumpur. I hold a British Passport and do not live in Kuala Lumpur, I am just travelling through for the week.
Getting a Myanmar visa in KL was incredibly easy. The address of the embassy is No 8 (C), Jalan Ampang Hilir, 55000, Kuala Lumpur. The closest train stop is Ampang Park on the Kelana Jaya Line. It is about a 15 minute walk or 5 minute taxi ride (cost about 3.60 MYR) to the Embassy. The phone numbers are +60342516355 or +60342515595.
Visa submission times are Monday to Friday 09:30 - 12:30 and collection times are Monday to Friday 16:00 - 17:00.
I applied for my visa at about 11:00 on Monday and picked it up at 16:00 on Tuesday. They provide the forms at the embassy. For a tourist visa you need:
Passport with 6 months validity
2 passport photos (3.5 x 4.5 cm), preferably with a white background (mine was grey and they gave me the visa but they did ask why it wasn't white - so try to get one with a white background). You can get photos at Ampang Park (NB the shops here generally open after 9:30)
Tourist visa application form (you can get this when you arrive at the embassy)
Photocopy of the bio data page in your passport
Return air ticket/travel itinerary (I think that you only need this if you are applying for the urgent service)
Normal service (3 working days) costs 80 MYR
Urgent service (1 working day) costs 150 MYR (for this you need a return air ticket)
Here are photos of the board in the embassy with documents needed to get each type of visa (tourist, business, multiple entry, religious (meditation) and social visit).
Business and Multiple entry:
Tourist, religious (meditation) and social visit.
When you first arrive at the embassy it all seems pretty confusing, there are lots of people around and there appear to be no signs in English. But actually it was so easy - one of the easiest visa application processes I have ever done. Almost directly opposite the gate on the other side of the courtyard is a little section with a table and chairs and two windows in the wall with a sign above saying "visa section" (this appears hidden when you first arrive!), you pick up your form from the window on the left then queue up (only took 10-15 mins when we were there) and hand your passport and papers into the window on the right.
Any questions feel free to send me a message!
Could this post be made a sticky?
