Photo requirements (at Vietnam airport)

Photographs are required at Vietnam airports only and you do not need to provide them during the online application process. The photographs need to be taken in the format specified below. These format requirements meet internationally agreed standards. If the photographs are not in this format, they will be rejected, and may cause a delay in processing your application.


Photographs must:

- be a recent true likeness of the individual, taken within the last 6 months
- in colour, not black and white
- taken against a light grey or cream background 40 millimetres (mm) width x 60 mm height (4cm*6cm)
- be free from shadows
- be printed professionally or taken in a passport photo booth. Photos printed at home are unlikely to be of an acceptable standard.


Note: in emergency cases, photos can be taken at Vietnam airport for 2 USD/each
