A visa on arrival service exists, but it is only available to those needing transit visas, business visas or entry visas for participating in certain events or meetings.

Transit

A visa on arrival, costing US$20 and valid for 24 hours, is theoretically available for those in transit who have evidence of an onward flight. The service is periodically withdrawn however, and airline staff may not allow you to fly into Myanmar without a visa in your passport.
