You need to make sure that you have a set of high quality photos in order for your application to be accepted by the High Commission of Botswana, and sometimes instant photo kiosks will not be able to meet these standards. We have had countless customers who have been declined, visit us to get the right specifications of a Botswana passport photo or visa photo.

Choosing Reload Internet to get your Botswana passport photo and visa photos can help you avoid delays that may occur with your application. You need to make sure that you have clear photographs that can be used to easily identify who you are when entering Botswana.

Your photo should less than 6 months old and it must be clear in focus with no red eye or reflections that can affect the overall quality of the image photograph. You need to have a clear complexion on the photographs; anything that could cover the face including excessive makeup may affect your application.
