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.

The fees you pay us consist of embassy fees and admin fees. Embassy fees are those paid to the embassy to consider your application. Admin fees are our fees and they cover the following services:

eVisas - in most instances - filling out your application forms, submitting the forms on your behalf to the authorities, making sure that all necessary documents are present and are sent off to the authorities if and where necessary, checking the visa once it’s been granted and sending it to you.

Visas placed into the passport - access to the useful how-to guides which explain in details how to fill out the application form and which documents to send to us. Once we receive the documents - checking the application forms to make sure there isn’t a single mistake on them, making sure that the supporting documents are present and correct, taking your application pack to the embassy, queuing to submit the application. Once the visa has been approved and the passport is ready for collection - collecting the passport, checking the visa to make sure it’s the correct one and sending the passport back to you.

At all times you can track the progress of your order online and also get free text message updates on the progress.
