Official requirements for the photo

Size of the photo, quality, and resolution

To have an ideal acceptable picture for your Visa your size of the photo needs to have the width of the photo is 35mm, while the size must be 45mm. The resolution of the photo for the visa should have a resolution of 600 dpi. The photo of the passport must be of high quality because it is a biometric photo for citizen identification. Our photo creation tool provides quality photography that will be accepted after your photoshoot because it contains all the measures and requirements.

Background and lighting

To get an ideal photo environment and quality service, we recommend that your background be white to make our cropping tool easier to crop. In addition to white, colors such as light blue, light pink, and the like are suitable for the tool for easier cropping. Such colors are conducive to easier cropping and better match the quality photos for the Visa. Dark backgrounds can lead to problems when taking photos and to the possibility of rejecting photos for Visa documentation. For better and higher quality photography and your hardworking pleasure when taking photos, we recommend that you use higher lighting to make your face more expressive. A dark light can jeopardize your facial appearance, a warning of questioning the possibility of accepting the making of your Visa.


Our great photo editing tool is based on editing the surrounding cropping background around you. So if you are in the park, in a room, at college, or in a car, our photo cropping tool will appropriately arrange the environment around you, creating attention to your face and preparing photos to be ideal for your application for a Visa document.


When taking a photo for your Visa, it is necessary to wear appropriate clothes. Clothing should not be provocative and should not cover the face. Keep in mind that your face is in the center of the photoshoot, and any other content on the photo will result in your Visa being rejected. In the Visa photo, it is recommended to wear formal clothes. Religious veils are allowed if it is written that a person practices a particular religion for his life but covering the face will also lead to a refusal to make a Visa.


In Cambodia, it is not allowed to wear glasses while you are photographing for a Visa, the reason for this is that the Visa is used to identify citizens, and identification is based on photography. Wearing glasses makes it impossible to identify citizens, makes it difficult to identify the cornea, and if you take photos with glasses, this will lead to a refusal to obtain a visa.


Makeup is allowed for face decoration and better quality looks when taking photos for Visa. But makeup is not recommended in large quantities, which will lead to a refusal to make a Visa. The reason for this is the aggravation and overlapping of identities on the official document which is a violation of the law in Cambodia.


Wearing jewelry in a Visa photo is not allowed for several reasons. Jewelry materials such as necklaces, necklaces, or earrings are not allowed to interfere with the brightness of the photo and may interfere with the identity display in the photo. Also, wearing jewelry or similar items makes it more difficult to identify the person, and therefore it is not recommended to take any photos with them as it will lead to the refusal to make visa documents.


While photographing for a Visa, it is necessary to pay attention to the appearance and position of the hairstyle. For the creation of a Visa, the center of attention is your face, and any obstruction of your hairstyle will lead to the refusal to create a Visa. The hairstyle should be neat, sideways, or tied in a buckle and should not be removed to cover the face in any way.


When photographing for a Visa, with proper clothing and avoiding wearing jewelry and excessive makeup, wearing a beard in a Visa photo is not recommended and may also lead to the possibility of refusing to give a Visa due to identity overlap.

Eyes looking in the camera lens

For the ideal photo image for a Visa document, you need to look straight into the camera, look directly into the lens of the device. The reason for this is to accept a photo for the production of a Visa which allows easier review and recognition of the identity of citizens during identification.

Tilting head and sitting straight

While photographing for a Visa document, it is necessary to sit straight and in no case tilt your head to the left or right. Any wrong position of the head can lead to incorrect photographs and refusal to make a Visa document.

How does the tool work?

Using photo options isn’t the only way to get the right Visa application image. Using the Visa photo tool, you will be able to take photos with your smartphone. It is an online program in which you upload a photo taken with your smartphone (it can be a selfie). The image is analyzed following the requirements for a Visa photo. If the photo meets the requirements, the program automatically removes the background and sends you a photo-ready to be added to your application.

What if the program detects that your photo is incorrect?

You can try again, as many times as you need for the picture to comply with the technical and compositional specifications for the Visa photo. As soon as the Visa photo tool confirms the photo is correct and appropriate, it will remove the background and send you the photo via email. So you can easily check the Visa photo.

Most common errors/causes of application rejection 

For your Visa photo to be accepted, follow the instructions provided by the app. The most common errors that users make are uneven facial lighting, wrong background color, bowed head, the wrong size of the photo, a face is cropped wrongly, the hair is above the area of the face that hides the face.

Frequently Asked Questions

❓ What is the size of the photo for Visa?

The visa photo size is 2 x 2 inches (51 x 51 mm), which is the standard size of a passport photo.

❓ Is the visa photo the same as the passport photo?

The visa photo and the Cambodian passport photo have almost the same requirements.

❓ Can I smile in the visa photo?

The visa photograph is a biometric photograph, so facial expressions should remain neutral. A very light smile is allowed, but we recommend that you maintain a neutral facial expression while taking photos for the visa.

The visa is valid for 10 years. Since it will follow you for a while, you might want to take a nice photo. You can take as many photos as you need on our website!

Of course! All you have to do is download our Photo AiD mobile app which is available on iOS and Android or simply use our website. Take a selfie and take a photo for your visa in 10 seconds!

Yes. Your facial expression must be neutral, so you can’t smile or be sad in your photo!

For the visa photo, it is necessary to pose against a light and neutral background, and no shadows should be visible.

Yes. You cannot wear glasses for the visa photo. Since November 1, 2016, glasses are not accepted in visa photos, which means you should take them off before taking the photo. This includes both sunglasses and eyeglasses.

Covering your head for the visa photo is generally not allowed. The face in the photo must be fully visible, and any scarves, hats, and other headgear partially cover the face. The exception is religious headgear, which is a symbol of belonging to a particular religious community and is allowed to be worn while being photographed for your visa. The face must be visible from the forehead to the chin and if it is not, the visa application will be rejected.

Yes, scanned photos are accepted. However, there are requirements that a scanned photo must adhere to. It must first meet all the requirements for digital photography. Second, the printed photo should be scanned at a resolution of 300 dpi. Third, the scan dots must not be visible in the photo.

As the Cambodian authorities will not receive any feedback on your visa application, you must check the correctness of your photo yourself. On the website of the Ministry of Interior of Cambodia, you can find examples of properly taken photos for the visa, and you can also use the tool for visa photos to check your photo.

If your photo does not meet the specifications required by the Cambodian authorities, your application will be rejected and you will not be considered when applying for a visa.

The rules regarding taking a photo for a visa are the same as when taking a passport and Green Card photo - all these photos are biometric photos, which means that they allow us to download your individual features that create fast and reliable identification.

About the document

Cambodian Visa is a document that permits a foreign citizen to enter, stay or transit to the territory of Cambodia that issues a visa. The visa is entered (or affixed as a sticker) in the passport of a foreign citizen, or issued as a special document in the form of a form, which must be presented upon entry into Cambodia. Possession alone is no longer a guarantee of entry into Cambodia, but other prescribed conditions for the entry of foreigners into Cambodia must be met.

How long is the visa valid for?

The period of validity of the visa depends on the circumstances of the travel of foreigners in Cambodia and cannot be longer than five years. The process for making it will take 3 to 4 working days.

Types of this particular document (e.g. tourist, business, study visas)

A visa is issued for one, two, or more entries for transit, tourist, business, private or other travel.

These types of visas can only be obtained from the Cambodian embassy or consulate. For Electronic visas, they are currently offered only for Taiwan passport holders. All others will need to contact your local embassy or consulate for their requirements for applying for a visa, as each embassy and consulate is handling it differently.

How do I apply for the document?

The standard requirement is your passport, passport photos(which you can make through our app), evidence of health insurance coverage, and a letter of invitation from a registered Cambodian business, school, or similar (stamped, of course). Also for a Cambodian Visa, you need to bring cash in US dollars and a passport needs to be valid for at least 6 months and needs to have one blank page. 

How much does it cost to issue such a document?

The price to make a Visa for Cambodia is $30 plus $6 for the processing fee. 

Entering in Cambodia 

The Tourist Visa is valid for 30 days but you have 90 days to enter the country, meaning you must enter Cambodia within 90 days of the visa being issued, but can only stay for 30 days. Because of Covid-19, there are still quarantine obligations. Those who are fully vaccinated, need to stay in quarantine for 7 days and 14 days for those who are not vaccinated. 

Overstaying your Cambodian visa

It is not recommended, but you can extend your Visa in Cambodia at the price of $10 daily which you can pay when you are leaving the country. It is possible to extend your stay for up to 30 days. After 30 days, overdrawn users are still liable for a daily fee of $ 10, but, depending on the length of the overrun, there is a risk of imprisonment, deportation, and future travel bans.
