I want to get a visa on arrival and I see that I need to prepare 02 passport photos to get visa stamped at Vietnam airport. So, what are Vietnam visa photo size requirements? Are they the same for all nationalities? Thanks a lot. Samuel.

Dear Samuel,

Please be informed that to the Vietnam visa photo size is the same for those getting a visa on arrival for Vietnam.

Its size should be 4 x 6 cm (standard Vietnamese photo size) or 2 x 2 inches.

In addition, the Vietnam visa photo requirements also include:

  • The photos should be identical, taken within the past 6 months.
  • The photos must be in color, printed on bond paper or professional photo paper
  • They must be full face, front view with a solid, plain bright background.
  • A hat or headgear must be kept out, unless it must be worn for religious purpose.
  • The outfit with the exception of religious attire should not be worn.
  • Dark glasses or nonprescription glasses with tinted lenses are not acceptable unless required for medical reasons.
  • In some special cases, consistent objects like prescription glasses, a hearing device, wig or similar items are still accepted
  • No smile. Just keep a neutral expression.

Should you need any further information, please feel free to let us know.

Kind regards,
