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.

Visa fees depend on a number of things: your nationality, the amount of time you’re going to spend in the country, the number of times you’re planning to enter the country, and the type of visa you need.

Generally, visas which allow you to make multiple entries into a country are more expensive, as are visas which let you stay in the country for longer. Business visas are also more expensive than tourist visas (usually).

For example, a 30 day single entry visa for Vietnam is significantly cheaper than a 30 day multiple entry visa, or a 90 day visa.

Visa fees are regulated by the government of each country and can be raised or lowered at any time. We’re pretty diligent at monitoring this and quickly update our website to reflect any changes.
