this is actually an old hat, it has been announced virtually everywhere and started almost 3 months ago already.....

No, it isn't an old hat. I read about it today and was thinking of posting it here, but I see that Cuchulainn was faster. I understand this new regulation has been in place only recently (another source says since 01 July), so it is good to make it known.

Three questions to Cuchulainn:

1. l. Individual visitor or tourist must have at least USD 300 CASH as evidence of sufficient funds.

It sounds like we have to have US$ 300 in cash with us. Will credit cards be accepted instead?

2. Is there a compulsory amount of US$ that we have to convert into local currency?

3. p. Visa forms are available on arrival from all airlines landing in Myanmar; or applicants can apply for a visa online before their arrival.

Please advise the URL for applying for the visa over the internet.
