Duration of visa validity: you can only use an e-visa for a single entry. If you plan to travel from Myanmar to another country for a short trip and return back to Myanmar again, you need to apply for two eVisas.
Passengers with eVisa are only permitted to enter at Yangon International Airport. The government of Myanmar will announce the extended plan on time. Update: in the meantime, some other airports (such as Mandalay) and a few land border checkpoints have been included in the scheme.
If the decision is not allowed to enter, you may return by the same flight. (The black list of Myanmar will be checked before granted the visa, however, Immigration personnel will check the INTERPOL black list on arrival and if someone would be in the list, they have to return by the same flight).
