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 find that you need a visa in a hurry, some embassies offer an express/urgent service which reduces their processing time. The processing time can be reduced from weeks to a matter of days, or sometimes to just one day!
While not all embassies offer this service, we sometimes offer a ‘priority service’, which means that we can reduce our own admin processing time and get your application submitted as quickly as possible.
If either of these options are available for you, it will show up when you search for your visa on our website. It’s important that you always double check processing times to make sure you allow yourself enough time to get your visa!
