What are the requirements for the photograph?

Dear applicant, please review the below guidelines to ensure that the photo you have submitted matches the requirements of the Embassy.

Please ensure that the submitted photo is:

  • 35 mm x 45 mm in size with the head centred in the frame;
  • full face, with you facing the camera directly;
  • your face is covering about 70-80% of the photo area;
  • colored and has a light background;
  • taken within the last 6 months.

Please make sure that:

  • your head, including both face and hair, are shown from the top of the head to the tip of the chin on top and bottom and from hairline side-to-side. It is preferable that ears are visible;
  • sunglasses or other accessories are removed unless required for medical reasons (an eye patch, for example);
  • headwear, including veils, are removed.

We strongly advise you to follow the instructions. Submission of incorrect photographs will lead to slowdown in your application process.
