Some embassies require applications to be submitted in person as they collect biometric data (such as fingerprints) at the time of application.

Unfortunately, because you have to attend in person, The Visa Machine can't submit your application for you. However, we do provide a document preparation service. This service includes filling out your application form and checking supporting paperwork before it's submitted to the Embassy. Using this service ensures that you have no mistakes on the form which can cause delays in the application process.

Once your documents are ready, you'll then need to visit the visa application centre/embassy to submit your application.

Please note, you'll have to pay the Embassy visa fees at the time of application. The Visa Machine will only charge admin fees for this service.

Once the visa is issued, you can either collect the passport in person or opt for having the passport posted to you. If it's the latter, you'll need to pay the postage fees at the time of application directly to the Embassy.
