South Africa: take visa photos on your own online

Some tour operators predict: right after the end of the COVID-19 pandemic and re-opening of international borders the travel industry will skyrocket. Tourists and immigrants will be in a hurry to fulfill their delayed plans. That means, that if you plan to travel as well, you will need to apply for a foreign visa.

In the Internet era you can easily apply online for US, Canadian, New Zealand or Chinese visas and other documents. But no visa can be issued without a compliant photograph. And where can you take a passport or visa photo in Johannesburg, Cape Town, Durban, Pretoria, or Port Elizabeth, when all the photo studios are on the lockdown (just like everything else)? "Online" is the answer. The would be the best option after the quarantine as well: it's faster, cheaper and safer than to go anywhere out.

There were times when passport photos couldn't be made without a professional camera and photoshop. But this is a thing of the past. Now all you need is a smartphone, a homemate to take a photo of you (or tripod/selfie stick) and the internet to access Visafoto.com.
