In this review, we present the latest exclusion limits obtained from astroparticles on Lorentz Invariance Violation (LIV) in the photon sector. We discuss the techniques known as energy-dependent time delay or time lag, subluminal pair production threshold shift, suppression of air shower formation, superluminal photon decay, and superluminal photon splitting. Perspectives for future results on LIV with the next generation of experiments are also addressed.
