It's great that you are taking 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.
Check the visa packs to see which visas you will need for the route you are taking and once you decide to go ahead and use our help in obtaining your visas, don't forget to use the discount code MR2019 to get 15% off our service fees.
Majority of visas are stickers placed into your passport. To be able to do that the embassy will require original passport, which they will keep for the whole duration of the application process. For that reason you will need to send the actual passport to us to apply for the visa.
The only exception to this rule are eVisas which are issued electronically with just a copy/ scan of your passport. This option, however, is only available for a small number of countries. Please check the visa options to see if eVisas are available to the country you are travelling to.
