Plan Your Trip  » Visas

Congratulations! Landing on this page means organising your visas just got a whole lot easier, so that’s one less thing to worry about! Our dedicated visa planning service is a brilliant tool for determining exactly what visas you will need for your trip, and then allowing you to book them right here, right now.

Just use the interactive map below to select what countries you will be visiting (or type in the box at the bottom) and then click the orange button. This will bring up visa information for each country according to your nationality. You may find that for some countries you will not need a visa, but for the ones you do, completely up-to-date information and prices will appear. All you have to do then is select the right options for you and away you go!

Some embassies require applications to be submitted in person as they collect biometric data (such as fingerprints) at the time of application.

Unfortunately, because you have to attend in person, The Visa Machine can't submit your application for you. However, we do provide a document preparation service. This service includes filling out your application form and checking supporting paperwork before it's submitted to the Embassy. Using this service ensures that you have no mistakes on the form which can cause delays in the application process.

Once your documents are ready, you'll then need to visit the visa application centre/embassy to submit your application.

Please note, you'll have to pay the Embassy visa fees at the time of application. The Visa Machine will only charge admin fees for this service.

Once the visa is issued, you can either collect the passport in person or opt for having the passport posted to you. If it's the latter, you'll need to pay the postage fees at the time of application directly to the Embassy.
