Yes. Like adults, children need their own photo to get a visa for Vietnam. It can be a bit trickier photographing babies which’s why we have some recommendations for you:
  • You can lay babies down in a chair with the white sheet behind but make sure no one else can be in the picture
  • Keep toys, pacifiers, bottles, and other objects out of the picture.
  • Do your best to square up the face of the baby and snap the picture with his eyes open.
