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.

Submitting a visa/eVisa application doesn’t guarantee that you’ll be granted one. The decision ultimately lies with the embassy/immigration department of the country you’d like to go to.

That being said, visas are rarely denied in our experience. More often then not, rather then being denied, the embassy/immigration department will request further information or documents to support your application before they make a decision and if everything is in order, applications generally go smoothly.

In the unlikely scenario that your application is denied, the most common reasons may be because you have previous deportations, a criminal record or convictions, or not enough evidence to prove you’ll leave the country once your visa expires.

If your visa is denied you can always apply again but unfortunately, you will most likely have to pay the fees again, as embassies do not issue refunds. You can check out our refund policy by hopping over to our help section here: Help / Refunds

Using our services significantly reduces the chances of your visa application being denied. We’ve been doing this for years and know exactly what the embassies are looking for. We also have a good working relationship with the embassies, so on the rare chance that something doesn’t look right when we submit your application, they’ll let us know right away.
