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.

If you find that you need a visa in a hurry, some embassies offer an express/urgent service which reduces their processing time. The processing time can be reduced from weeks to a matter of days, or sometimes to just one day!

While not all embassies offer this service, we sometimes offer a ‘priority service’, which means that we can reduce our own admin processing time and get your application submitted as quickly as possible.

If either of these options are available for you, it will show up when you search for your visa on our website. It’s important that you always double check processing times to make sure you allow yourself enough time to get your visa!
