Guidelines and criteria for newborns, babies, and infants for the Cambodia e-Visa and passport photographs

No matter their age, all children and infants must have a passport or visa to leave the country.

This implies that each youngster needs their photo. 

There is no room for group photos. No group photos are allowed. 

Although it can be challenging to capture images of young children, in particular, there are a few strategies and tips that can help. 

Here are a few other considerations:

  • A young child or infant should face the camera directly. The mouth must be shut and the eyes must be open.
  • Hands or other objects cannot be seen while holding the child.
  • Cover the background with a basic white fabric. This is very helpful for car seats and floors.
  • Pacifiers, Toys, bottles, and blankets are never appropriate for visa photos.
  • Check the lighting again.
  • Once more, a photograph that is too dark or too light is automatically rejected.

Uploading the Passport 

The applicant has the option of having their passport scanned or scanning their personal information themselves using a smartphone.

Clearness and legibility of all details are required.

For the Cambodia e-Visa, Natvisa accepts all files and will convert them into acceptable files.

 The maximum file size is 10 MB.

Uploading Image of Self 

The applicant has two options: scan their passport or use a smartphone.

On the other hand, it’s best to reach out to experts at Natvisa.

All files are accepted by Natvisa. Images will be changed into a file that can be used.

 The maximum file size is 10 MB. 

 The Natvisa team will fix the image if it is sideways.

What is a Typical Photo Size? 

A standard photo of self is 4.5 x 3.5 cm or 2x2-inch (as per requirements listed on the USA visa form).

However, Natvisa will crop it to an acceptable size if needed. 

An applicant can share the photos by using the online upload tool.

On the other hand, simply, take the picture, send it, and leave the rest to the Natvisa team.

What if the Photos are Rejected? 

The applicant will be contacted through email for a request for a fresh photograph if the Natvisa staff believes that the passport or applicant’s image does not adhere to the Cambodia e-Visa specifications or guidelines.

Make sure to share the email address that will be used for correspondence.

Does Uploading Acceptable Images Guarantee the eVisa? 


At Natvisa, applications are carefully reviewed by visa specialists after travelers have completed the application form, made the payment, and shared the necessary scans. 

Travelers will be notified as soon as it is determined that the requirements for the Cambodia e-Visa application are met. 

An immigration service consular employee then processes the application in Cambodia. 

Does the visa specialist find that something is amiss? This may occur if the information entered does not match the information on the passport scan, if the scan or supplied passport photo is unclear, or both. 

Applicants are usually notified of this by e-mail or SMS.

In such cases, the application will have to be processed again after one has corrected the data or files.


Travelers are advised to keep hard copies of electronic visas on hand at all times. One copy will be required by immigration officials upon arrival, and the other is necessary when an applicant departs.
