    I have a question about social visa.

    Do we need put one photo on the form and one extra photo in the envelope? Total two photo require?

    don’t understand social visa fees are very expensive $150. Do you want people spend money in Myanmar or discourage to go to Myanmar because of such expensive fees. Please look at broader view. Hmm when the country will progress.

    See Vietnam – how easy to apply for visa! can apply by Email. how the country is advancing rapidly.

    Back in September, the Consulate General was saying that Myanmar Consulate satellite office will open pretty soon in El Monte once a week, and all Visas can be taken care of over there. Drop off this week, and pick up next week.
    Is it open? If yes, can I have the address and which day of the week?

    This week, almost the whole week I called the Consulate General Office phone# (213) 387-0043, more than 25 times. That’s the phone# on their website, and couldn’t be able to talk to anyone. Only the machine picked up the calls but no where to leave a message. I would like to suggest that this is our Country’s Consulate General Office and if you have the phone, please answer. If not, don’t publish the phone#. It’s very shameful that the Office of Consulate General’s Office don’t answer the phone. Seems like they only answer their Cells, give out to their closed community.
    Is that showing that there’s nothing has ‘CHANGED’?…SORRY.
