Digital photos for visas

If you want to go abroad, you should check whether you need to have a visa to enter the country. If that is the case, you may be asked to submit a biometric photo. Make sure you have the correct photo meeting all the requirements, as a small mistake could result in your visa application being rejected.

What makes the things complicated is that every country has their own set of requirements a visa photo needs to meet. Meanwhile US visa photo follows the standard of a US passport photo, in some countries the requirements to be met may be completely different. European Union countries tend to demand a photo having dimensions of 35x45mm, China sticks to the 33x48mm size. Some countries require white background, other like Canada go for royal blue colored background.
