Bring extra passport photos

Passport-sized photos are often required to obtain a visa upon arrival, in countries like Nepal, and for purchasing a local SIM card for your mobile phone, in countries like India. They’re also handy to have in case you have to get a replacement passport while traveling.

Travel Tip: As you prepare for your trip, be sure to stock up on extra photos. If you’re visiting just 1 or 2 countries, bring at least 4 extra photos. For trips involving more countries, an extra 6 to 8 should be good. The cost of getting extra photos is often nominal and you’ll save yourself the hassle of getting them in transit.

  1. Brad,

    That’s a great idea. My husband and I are meeting our son, his wife and our daughter in London in May and then going on to Barcelona and Geneva. I will bring some extra passport photos just in case. I love your blog. Vi

  2. Not just extra pics, but photocopies of your passport are also helpful to carry around – many countries require travellers to have identification on them, so the cops don’t hassle/ask for bribes, and its safer to carry a copy instead of the real passport when you’re out and about during the day. Plus, some airports (e.g. the one in Pk), ask for a passport photocopy, and you can save a few bucks of having to copy the passport from their outrageously priced machine if you have the copy already.
