Photos for visas and other documents required abroad

Digital photos for visas

Before planning a trip, you should check if it is necessary to have a visa document with you. If it is – you will be asked to submit a biometric visa photo along with various other documents. Every country has a specific set of requirements that must be met by the visa photo. When taking your photograph, you should be careful to ensure that all of these requirements are met in order to avoid a rejection of your visa application.

While some countries, such as the US, stick to the same requirements as their passport photo – India takes a different route and has different dimensions for the Indian visa photo. The requirements in India say that the photo must be 51 mm x 51 mm, which differs to most Eurpoean countries which have a visa photo size requirement of 35 mm x 45 mm. The Indian visa photo must have a plain, light-colored or white background – which contrasts with the Canadian requirement of a deep blue background.
