At Untamed Borders we recommend applying for visas with a professional visa service who can guide you though the process and take care of lodging and collecting your passport with multiple embassies, so we have teamed up with The Visa Machine. They live and breathe visas and have the expertise to provide current and accurate information and arrange the correct visas for your trip, quickly and at a good price.
In many countries, without a visa you'll simply be turned away at the border or at check-in for your flight. The cheapest way to get a visa is to deal directly with the embassy of the country you need a visa for. However this can be a confusing and complicated process, with obscure questions on application forms, limited help from embassy officials, long waits while your passport is being processed and time consuming trips to embassies. The Visa Machine handle every aspect of your visa application, leaving you time to enjoy planning the rest of your trip.
This is not our terms and conditions but it gives you a good indication of the situation. Read our full terms and conditions here.
Because visas and embassies can be somewhat of a law unto themselves we want to make sure you understand where you stand. It's not the same as just buying something. You are paying for the Embassies to CONSIDER giving you a visa. This means if the mood takes them not to give you a visa, you don't get one. And they keep your money. Sometimes there are other ways to get a visa after you have been turned down but it will always involve coughing up more money unfortunately.
Embassies occasionally make mistakes for which, you've guessed it, they can charge you to rectify.
Having said all that, we process many thousands of visas and the number of problems is very low and we have a few sneaky tricks to make sure it stays low. If we make a mistake, we will make sure we get you the correct visa and we'll pay all the embassy costs as well. You should make sure you don't book any part of your travel that can't be changed without a cost to you until you have all your visas, as we can't be held responsible for those costs and your insurance company is unlikely to pay out either.
If you use The Visa Machine, you will have to agree to our terms and conditions in order for us to go ahead with your visa applications.
