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.
You can certainly get your visas independently.
However, in most cases it will involve travelling to the embassy twice (first to submit the application, then to collect the passport with the visa in it). That would mean taking a day off work, travelling to the embassy (most of them are located in London) and queuing to submit the documents (queuing time may be up to 3 hours).
If you decide to use our services, we’ll take the hassle out of getting your visas. You’ll be able to do everything from comfort of your own home and the only trip you’ll need to do would be to the post office to send the documents to us. And then once the visa is issued the passport will be delivered back to you with a secure trackable service.
We will also increase the chances of getting the visa as all of your paperwork will be carefully checked before it’s submitted to the embassy, so there will be no missing documents or mistakes on your application form.
