Hi Princi

I will definitely let you know how I got on with e-Visa. It is fairly straightforward process. I tried a week ago but it was too soon to apply for my November Kerala Trip. I need to get the photo sorted out before I apply. Have not had a chance to go to Luton Town to find out if anyone can help. But googled Jessops and there is one in Milton Keynes so if all else fails, I will have to go to Milton Keynes. The cost is $60 plus $2 fee I think - Just You are charging £80.

Jaya, I was looking into the annoying photos thing for the Evisa.
which one can only do 5 weeks in advance .

Do you have a scanner copier at work you can use. Our machine allows one to scan a photo it comes through as a PDF.
There is a lovely piece of softwear called "Snip it" this enables you to cut an item from a page and then save it as a JPEG. Whihc you could then upload to to the application.
Might be worth a try and save you a few pennies.

Hi Alex

I have a scanner at home, but it is not very good. I used to have a lovely scanner at work which saved photos exactly as the original, but now I scan using a photocopier and it is not so great. I will go to the town to have the photo taken once I am back from my Battlefields trip next week. I still have some time so hopefully will find someone who can take the photo for the visa. Can't understand why they need the exact dimensions!

Hi Jaya, it may sound strange but look out for 'passport photos here' signs. My local shoe repairers had one outside his shop. I popped in and asked about Indian visits size photos and bingo! His machine was programmed for all vista sizes - India is not the only one it seems. He is also able to move the photo so you have the face just where it is meant to be - India vista photo have to have a certain gap at the bottom and the top of the face.
I will be interested to hear if having an e-visa causes hold ups at the other end.
Have a wonderful trip.

Hi Jean

Thanks for the tip. I will find somewhere in Luton where it says 'passport photos here'. I guess if they offer passport photos then they would be familiar with all types of odd requests form different countries. Am planning to go to the town sometime next week.

Hi Jaya

I got my visa photo in my local shoe repair shop (Timpson). Not sure if you have a branch in Luton.

I am off to Kerala on Thursday. Will let you know how it goes.

Not doing the Borneo trip but may join you in South Africa next year!

A quick google search shows that the Boots store in The Mall Luton has a passport photo booth.
Good luck
