It is important that your photos are of high quality in order for your application to be accepted at the embassy, you will be declined if your photographs are the same quality as those taken at a photo booth, on a home computer, or a similar method of producing a passport photograph. We have encountered many customers who visited our store after being rejected for not getting the correct specifications of the Thai passport photo or visa photo.

Choose Reload Internet for your Thai passport photo and visa photos; we guarantee you will not encounter any delays in your application process due to a photograph issue. We provide very clear photographs for easy identification which you will need when travelling into/through Thailand.

Photos older than 6 months are unacceptable; they must be sharp, in focus, and without reflections so as not to damage the quality of the photograph. We recommend you use only light makeup on your face; as heavy use may result in issues with identification when travelling to/through Thailand.
