I've been to Myanmar twice, both times less than 14 days which is what my Asean passport allows. I would like to stay longer on my third trip and find small place to rent maybe in Yangon or somewhere nearby that is less busy. I'm in my early stages of research and I have some questions.
As far as I know, you can get an extension visa in Yangon for 1-3 months. There is an FRC if you want to stay longer but it costs quite a lot. I don't know if this is up to date and what the requirements are for the first one. Do I just show up with my passport, are there other documents required, will they check my tickets or make sure I have enough money for the stay, that sort of thing.
If I go ahead as planned, I would like to purchase a return ticket beforehand and I need to know if there is a chance I will be turned down buy the issuing authority.
Secondly, is it easy for a foreigner to find a place to rent for 1-3 months in Yangon or outside Yangon? What kind of prices can I expect? I'm not looking for anything fancy, a small room with a private bath and a fan and I will be good. I'd like to avoid expat places as they are generally overpriced and poor value.
I know there are probably forums that can provide more detailed info, but as I said I am in the early stages and I've gotten good information from here in the past.
Thanks in advance.
