Welcome to The Visa Machine

We're here to make getting your visas easy.

As an overland adventurer you need something a bit more specialised than a tourist strolling across a border. So we've set up this section to ensure you get exactly what you need.

Select which adventure you're heading off on and we'll tell you which visas you need based on your nationality and residency.

We can also offer you a few things to make your life even easier such as form filling and 2nd passports, have a look here for a few more details.

If you have any questions or you'd like to add a service to your order drop us a line.

Turkmenistan Transit Letter of Invitation (LOI) is applied for the whole of the Rally at the same time as a group. As there are usually over 500 applicants, the processing time for this LOI can be up to 3 months. Our processing time for this LOI is 4 weeks as we need to process all of the applications together to apply for the LOI, then once it's issued, we need to check every single detail to make sure all applicants have got correct details on the LOI.

The applications are processed by the State Migration Service of Turkmenistan and as there is such a large number of applicants they take a while to process them.

Unfortunately, once the documents were submitted to the State Migration Service it is impossible to speed up the application process or enquire about the progress of the applications.

Once the LOI is issued, it is forwarded to the embassy in London who carries out the checks. They then forwarded it to us to check it and only then, once we check all of the details we can send it to each applicant individually.

Please note, the LOI issue date stated on the document is not the date when we receive the document. generally it gets to us at least 2 weeks after it’s been issued.
