Visa Support (also known as an invitation, letter, tourist confirmation, or voucher) is a support document that allows you to obtain a visa. It cannot be used in place of a visa, and we recommend that you carry your copy with you as you travel, as passport control officials reserve the right to request it as you cross the border. To obtain your actual visa, you must submit the support document with the required visa application paperwork to the appropriate consulate. EDS can obtain your visa for you, on your behalf, if you desire.

EDS can obtain visa support documents from the following countries: Australia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Moldova, Russia, Tajikistan, Ukraine, Uzbekistan.

Applications for a TOURIST visa to certain countries must include a voucher from a hotel or tour provider. You hotel can might provide the required voucher or EDS can obtain it for you. If you elect to have EDS obtain the voucher for you it will be prepared the same or next business day depending on your urgency and sent to you by e-mail and/or fax. If you require an original document (please check requirements of your consulate), EDS can mail or courier it to you for an additional fee. If you elect to have EDS obtain the voucher, please complete and return the Tourist Voucher Application form. If EDS is preparing your visa application, we will include a copy of the voucher.
