Reload Internet will provide you with a set of 4 high-quality photographs to submit with your Costa Rican passport or visa application, and can guarantee that the photos will be successful. We will capture your photo with the latest camera technology, using the correct background and lighting as requested by the Embassy of Costa Rica in their official passport and visa photo guidelines. After ensuring that your Costa Rican passport photo or visa photo will pass – by cross-checking it with the official guidelines – and that you are happy with the picture, we will print out a set for you using Embassy approved digital photo printers. Finally, we will cut your Costa Rican passport photo or visa photo set to the correct sizing, so that they are ready to be submitted with your application straight away! This process is why we can guarantee that your Costa Rican passport photo or visa photo will be successful the first time you submit it with your application.

You must make sure that your Costa Rican passport photo or visa photo meets all of the necessary specifications requested by the Embassy of Costa Rica, otherwise your application will most likely be rejected due to a photo error, and you may have to restart the process from the beginning. This can cost you excessive amounts of time and money. When you have your Costa Rican passport photo or visa photo produced at Reload Internet, this will not happen to you.
