Overland

Travelers can access to Myanmar both by air and by land, all accesses valid passports (at least six months of validity from the time of entry) and visas are required, yet getting Myanmar by land maybe less foreseeable. Travel by land, entry with a Border Pass is permitted at the following Border Check Points: Tachileik, Three Pagoda Pass, Myawaddy and Kawthaung on the Myanmar-Thai border and Lweje, Nam Kham, Muse, Kyukoke, Kwanlong, Mong Lar on the Myanmar-Yunnan (China) border along. At present, visitors can legally cross at four places to Myanmar:

 From Ranong (southern Thailand border) to Kawthaung (Burma Tanintharyi)

 From Mae Sai (northern Thailand border) to Tachilek (Burma Shan State)  

 From Ruili (China) to Mu Se (Burma Shan State)

 From Morei (India border) to Tamu (Burma Chin State)

People cannot reach Myanmar by land or by sea from Bangladesh, India and Laos. But you will need a prior arrangement for your visa to fly to Yangon and maybe Mandalay. However the possibility of land crossings can be changed from time to time and it is always best to check with embassy first before you plan to enter into Myanmar.

 Traveling with Children 
Single parents or other adults traveling alone with children should be aware that some countries require documentary evidence of parental responsibility before allowing lone parents to enter the country or, in some cases, before permitting the children to leave the country. They may want to see birth certificates, a letter of consent from the other parent or some evidence as to your responsibility for the child. As far as we are aware the Burmese immigration authorities do not normally ask to see such evidence, but if you have concerns please check with the nearest Burmese Embassy.
