Do you need passport photos for the Laos visa?

Yes, you must provide two identical passport-style pictures with your Laos visa application. This contains applications for the Laos eVisa online.

The photographs must fulfill the following requirements:

  • They must be 4x6 cm in size.
  • They must be taken against a white background.
  • Your face must be centered in the photo and take up 70-80% of the space.
  • Your eyes must be open and your eyebrows should be in a natural position (not raised or creased).
  • Your mouth should be closed and your lips should be together.
  • You should not be wearing sunglasses, a hat, or any other head covering that obscures your face.

You may take your own passport photographs or have them professionally shot. If you're taking your own images, make sure you utilize a high-quality camera and even lighting.

Once you have your photos, you can upload them to the Global Visa Services website 

Here are some additional tips for taking passport photos:

  • Make sure that your hair is neat and tidy.
  • Wear plain, light-colored clothing that does not have any distracting patterns or designs.
  • Avoid wearing sunglasses, hats, or other head coverings that obscure your face.
  • Smile naturally.
