Welcome to the Visa Machine

We're here to make getting your visas easy.

As a Vodka Train customer you need something a bit more specialised than a tourist skipping across a border. So we set up The Visa Machine so you get exactly what you need.

Why The Visa Machine

We work really closely with Vodkatrain, so we know all the dates of your trip already, so from here getting your visas is alot simpler, which means even less work for you. Which is great.

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.
