visa dates

My husband & I are going to Myanmar in December. I sent in all of the information to a company in September. I wanted to get this done because my husband needed his passport in October. Anyway, just realized that the visas have us visiting between September 30 & December 29th.

The problem is we won't leave Myanmar until the 31st! I called CIBT, the company that got us the visas. First they said we'd have to redo the visas, then they said no it would be okay. Does anyone know how strict the government is on this kind of thing?

I have certainly read here and on the Thorntree,Myanmar forum, that you can pay (I think $3 a day) for a short overstay.

Tourist Visa is valid for 3 months. So you can enter into Myanmar within 3 months after the visa was issued.

But stay permit, 28 days, will commence only on the date of arrival.

I think , you need to redo since your visa already expire on 29 th and you will arrive Myanmar on 31 st .

I will not take a risk.
