Laos Passport Photos and Visa Photo Requirements – Rules, Guidelines, and Specifications

Now that you have a list of all the Laos passport photo requirements, we think it is best to know more about some of them so that there is no confusion. You should understand that failure to submit proper passport photos is one of the most frequent causes of rejection, and we want you to avoid that.

  • One of the first things you have to do is to find the right setting in which to take your picture. As we said above, the background of the photo has to be white. You can take your photo against a white wall, but it is okay if you do not have one in your house. A white sheet hung on a wall will work just as well. Just be careful to not pick a see-through cloth.
  • Placing your camera at eye level ensures the best possible angle for your picture. You are required to keep your dead straight, which means that you cannot tilt it or rotate it. You should also be aware of the fact that portrait-style photos are rejected because both sides of your face have to be visible.
  • You cannot appear in your passport photo or visa photo making any facial expressions other than neutral. You cannot smile, frown, or squint. You should keep your face relaxed when you take your picture.
  • When you take the photograph, look straight into the camera because your eyes must be perfectly discernible. They should not be obstructed by your hair or the frames of your eyeglasses. If you do keep your eyeglasses on, make sure that there is no glare in the picture. Also, do not wear sunglasses or glasses with tinted lenses for your passport photo or visa photo. Otherwise, it will be rejected.
  • The light has the potential of distorting facial features, which is why you must choose a source that is right in front of you. That is to avoid shadows on your face. You should also be careful about the intensity. It cannot be too low or too high.
  • Headwear is acceptable in your passport photo or visa photo, but only as long as you are bound by your religion to keep your head covered at all times. No other exceptions are made. However, if you do keep your headwear, you have to make sure that it does not create shadows on your face and that your face is visible from the top of your forehead to the bottom of your face.
  • You are not obligated to shave your beard if it represents your everyday likeness.

Rules and Requirements for Babies, Infants, and Newborn Passport and Visa Photos

When you decide to take a trip with your children, you should be aware of the fact that they need their individual passports and visas. As you can probably guess, you have to take their pictures too. iVisa Photos prepared some helpful tips for you below.

  • Children’s eyes must be visible as well, so make sure that they are awake when you take their passport photos.
  • If you decide to take the photo while your child sits in a car seat, remember to put a white cloth on the backrest so that the background is white.
  • Photographing infants may be comfortable if you put them on their backs, and you take the photos from above. If you want to do that, please place a white sheet underneath to achieve a white background.
  • If you want to hold the baby while someone else takes the passport photo, you should wear a white shirt. You must also remember that only the child can appear in the picture. Not even your hands can be visible.
  • You must remove pacifiers, headwear, and anything else from the shot.
