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.
Sometimes embassies offer different types of service: standard and express (or urgent). In such cases express service usually means expedited service using which you can get your application processed faster.
Difference in processing time can vary. In some embassies you can save almost a week, in others - only a day. But there are cases when even a day can make a difference!
Using express service also means that our admin processing time is reduced from 2 to 1 day.
Do bear in mind that not all embassies offer express option and we always recommend checking your options when planning the trip.
