It's great that you are planning to take part in The Mongol Rally. The Visa Machine is here to help you deal with the most bureaucratic and boring part of the trip planning.

Unfortunately due to COVID-19 a large number of countries remain closed for tourism making it impossible for the Rally to go through them. However, some of them are starting to open up slowly and we are making sure to keep the visa requirements updated on our website so that you could get up to date information on the countries you are planning to travel through. We are also looking for a way to make the COVID-19 safe travel possible by enabling you to book COVID-19 tests en-route where they are required for entry into the next country.

So for now, check the visa packs to see which visas you will need for the route you are taking and once things settle down and you decide to go ahead and use our help in obtaining your visas, don't forget to use the discount code MR2021 to get 15% off our service fees.

If you've got questions or want to start working out your route, check out our Help centre, chat to us online or just drop us an email and we'll be happy to talk it through with you.

For most visas (except eVisas) you will have to fill out application forms and post them to us along with your passport and any supporting documents required. But don’t worry, once you place an order with us you’ll have access to our application packs which include our detailed ‘How to Guides’. These will guide you through every section of the application form.

Our expert agents are also on hand to answer any questions you might have. You can get in touch with us by phone, email, or by using the online chat available on our website.

For most eVisas you simply have to log into your account, answer some questions about your trip, and upload a scan of your passport. Some eVisas also require a passport photo or supporting documents, such as your flights and itinerary, to be uploaded. You’ll also get an ‘Information Pack’ for all eVisas.

We can provide a form filling service for some visas, such as Russia, at an additional cost. If this option is available for the visa you need, it will pop up in the available options when you search for your visa.
