Great info, Mr Mustard. I wonder what the self-employed have to do? Write themselves a letter?

Interesting to see they use a Yahoo email address too....!

Yeah, I thought that was a bit weird. Surely the Burmese gov. could sort out their own domain/SMTP server?

I'm really not sure why you would need a letter from your employer for a tourist visa. Working for yourself: maybe a note from your mum?

Visa of Burma
Burma (Myanmar) visaA valid passport with a Myanmar Entry Visa is required for all visitors. We advise all foreign visitors to have passports with a validity of at least six months. The entry visa to Myanmar can be obtained from any Myanmar embassy or consulate general offices worldwide. The Myanmar government has two types of visas for foreign visitors:

EVT VISA (Tourist Visa)
Single-entry visa for tourist travellers entitling them to a maximum 28-day stay within the country (non-extendable). The cost of this visa is approximately US$20 per person.

Single or multiple-entry visa for travellers who are currently working under contract in Myanmar (extendable).
Myanmar requires a valid passport of minimum 6 months and a Myanmar visa for all foreigners visiting the country. Tourist visas are issued for a duration of 28 days starting from the day you enter the country, three months from the date of issue. You can obtain a visa at all Myanmar Embassies or Consulates with three photos and your passport. The international points of entry and exit in Myanmar are Yangon International Airport and Mandalay International Airport. Please click here for an updated list of Myanmar Embassies and Consulates.

Visa On Arrival
Regarding the visa on arrival, pre-arrangements have to be made and is available at Yangon and Mandalay International Airports only. This visa is granted to packaged cruise liner and chartered flight tourists and to foreign independent travellers (FITs) from places where there are no Myanmar representation, through any licensed Myanmar Travel and Tour (MTT) agency or directly by the Ministry of Hotels and Tourism (MHT).
For more information on Myanmar visas, please contact the nearest Myanmar embassy or any of our agents.

Default Updates on Burmese Visa

I travel to the country a lot for Business and leisure.

With the opening up of the country rules for getting visa has relaxed. Travelling there has become easier. Recently even newer rules has come in place.

For example Visa-on-arrival at Yangon airport is possible with pre-arrangements. Here's the Myanmar government's official site on visa The site's e-visa function has been under construction for months with no obvious progress to outside world.

There are other web site operators who are supported by Burmese travel agencies (these agencies are appointed by Burmese gov and so far their services has been reliable).

If you are a backpacker from the west planning to go to Burma via Thailand or Malaysia, do note that, there has been a few changes on how is applied. For example, in Kuala Lumpur, the embassy no longer accept visa applications for foreign tourists but referred to their appointed agency near Near Masjid Jarmek LRT station.
