  1. Former nationals

    All former nationals of Myanmar, regardless of whether they have been issued with a visa previously and regardless of their Immigration status in Australia, MUST contact the Embassy of Myanmar direct before submitting their application with CIBTvisas. The Embassy of Myanmar will not accept applications submitted by CIBTvisas unless the applicant has spoken direct with the Embassy first.

    It is recommended that applicants include a cover letter with their application, confirming that contact has been made with the Embassy.
    It should be noted that the applicant themselves must contact the Embassy direct, as the Embassy will not discuss applications for former Myanmar nationals with a third party on behalf of the applicant.

    Please Note: The processing delay of visas will vary and will be determined by the Embassy. The applicant should establish the processing delay when making the initial call to the Embassy. Extensive processing delays may be experienced and CIBTvisas is unable to request processing updates or estimated release dates.
