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.

Applying for a visa doesn’t guarantee that the visa will be issued. When you apply for a visa you request the embassy/ other authority to consider your application.

Although rarely, it happens that applications for visas are rejected. If that happens, embassies do not refund visa application fees. It may happen for several reasons. One of the most common ones is lack of supporting paperwork. If that was the case, applicant can re-apply for a visa, providing additional paperwork. In this case application fees will have to be paid again.

In other cases application may be rejected due to previous immigration history of the applicant. that may be previous deportations, visa rejections or convictions. In these cases application can be resubmitted again, but it is likely to be rejected again. Previous travel history remains on your profile for as long as 10 years and your travels may be restricted for that period of time.

Using our services significantly reduces risk of application rejections as we make sure that the paperwork is in place and complies with the embassy requirements.
