Visa Photo

The photograph required for any visa application must be:

  1. Color photo on a plain light-colored background.
  2. Format 3.5 cm x 4.5 cm.
  3. The avatar is in the middle of the photo
  4. Taken from the front; without obstruction; contact lenses without changing pupil size or color.
  5. Ensuring all features are clearly visible: eyes, nose, mouth, forehead and ears, with a closed mouth and without showing any teeth.
  6. The photo must be a close-up of your head and the top of your shoulders so that your face takes up 70-80% of the photograph.

A self-service photo booth is at your disposal inside the Visa Application Centre in case you need to provide a more recent compliant photograph to complete your application.
