You must ensure that the Laos passport photo or visa photo you submit with your application is of sufficient quality and meets all of the requirements listed below. If it is not, then it is highly likely that your Laos passport/visa application will be rejected by the Embassy when you submit it due to a photograph error. This will cost you money, stress and time – which could end up affecting your travel plans. When you come to Reload Internet, your Laos passport photo or visa photo is guaranteed to be accepted the first time you submit it with your application!

Laos Passport Photo specifications:

  • You must include two identical photos, each measuring 60x40mm

Laos passport photo

  • Photos must show your full head and the top of your shoulders. 60-80% of the photo should be taken up by your face- this means that when printed out, your face should measure around 1”- 1 3/8” from top to bottom

  • You must maintain a neutral expression while the photo is taken, with your mouth completely closed. You must also keep your eyes fully open, and look straight into the camera

  • Photos must be taken against a plain white background. No one else may be visible in the photo, and there cannot be any shadows either on your face or on the background

If you do keep your glasses on, the frames cannot obstruct your eyes at all, and there can’t be any glare or reflections on the lenses. You may only wear non-tinted prescription glasses in the photo
  • The photo itself needs to be printed on white, high-quality photo paper- this is included as part of our service. The photo cannot be digitally altered in any way- photos that have been edited will likely be rejected immediately
