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.

Some countries require you to obtain a Letter of Invitation (LOI) before you can apply for a visa. This is a document issued by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, an agency, business, company, or national of that particular country, inviting you to visit the country for a period of time. Once issued, it is then used to support your visa application. The LOI typically contains your personal information and the details of your trip. If you do require an LOI for your application, you won’t be able to apply for a visa without it.
