Photos for official Indian documents

Documents for Indian citizens

A biometric photo is needed for a number of official documents in India – including a passport, driving license and ID card. This is because a biometric photo allows your identity to be easily confirmed by official authorities.

When submitting one for official documents, there are different requirements which vary in every country – including specific facial expression, lighting and permitted accessories. In addition to these, there are also technical requirements for the biometric photo – such as the size and background. In India, the visa photo must be 51 mm x 51 mm, contrasting with most European countries which require a size of 35 mm x 45 mm.

Additionally, the background of the Indian visa photo must be plain white or off-white, whereas some countries ask for a dark blue background. We recommend that you ensure all of the requirements for the photo are met, as one being missed may lead to a visa application rejection and therefore make the whole process longer than necessary.
