I think it has to do with
"Some verbs require a gerund as a direct object" :
GET is one of them.
That is, he who "gets" gets something, hence the need of a direct object that would be "getting the VISA"
Well, it´s my thinking for the time being.
Anyway, seems like there are two ways of reasoning that one, to get to the sentence. One leaves to the TO-infinitive and the other to the ING (Gerund form).
On the safe side, we can use the infinitive for the time being.
I don´t perfect all minutes of gerund yet, so it´s my layman advice.
Of course, our buddy teachers, grammarians and more advanced in English certainly will give us a better explanation.
