Visa Kits

Tauck has collaborated with Pinnacle Travel Document Systems (TDS) for processing visas to destinations for which U.S. citizens are required to have entry visas.  The visa fees, as well as any applicable consular fees and shipping fees, are not included in the tour cost, and payment should be mailed with the completed applications directly to TDS. The amount of the visa fees, which are stated on the application, vary by destination.

 PLEASE NOTE:  While Tauck has partnered with Pinnacle Travel Document Systems (TDS) for processing visas, you are not required to process your visas through TDS, and may elect to choose other visa services or work directly through the appropriate consulate or embassy.

If you are a U.S. citizen traveling to Egypt or Turkey, entry visas are available upon arrival at their respective airports. The visa fees are not included in the tour cost, and are payable in U.S. dollars.  The prices for these visas will be noted in your final tour documents, and are subject to change without notification.
