Photo Criteria for Andorra Passport

For your passport application to be approved, you must provide a correct passport photo. Although passport photos are similar for most countries, there are specific requirements which t need to be addressed. When taking an Andorra passport photo it is essential to follow the government guidelines so that your application will not be denied. 

Andorran passport photo format & size

For the Andorran passport, the applicant must be facing forward, looking straight ahead. 

Second, the image must measure 4.5 cm in height and 3.5 cm in width. The applicant's full face must be visible from forehead to chin with visible ears. Seventy percent of the picture must be the candidate's face. Pictures older than six months will not be accepted. Portrait format images are also not allowed.

The following table presents what applicants can and can’t do in an official Andorra passport photo:

Can do:

Can’t do:

Keep a neutral facial expression

Smile or frown

Tie hair back or neatly put them behind the ears

Have hair visible on the face

Look straight into the camera lens

Have eyes closed or look away

Keep mouth closed and neutral

Have mouth open

Photo quality & resolution

The quality of the photo must be high. Blurry and unclear images will be rejected. The picture must be printed on high-quality paper at least 600 dpi. Photos should not be edited or have any filters visible. The image must clearly show the applicants' natural skin tone, eye colour and hair colour, and facial features. In addition, a photo cannot be damaged in any way, and pictures with creases or smudges won’t be accepted.

Background & lightning

Like for most other official documents, the Andorran passport photo must be in colour and the background must be white. Any other background colour, even grey, willbe rejected. . Regarding the lighting, faces must be evenly lit. No shadows or reflections can be visible as they are considered a distortion of the image. 

Headwear & eyewear

Eyes must be perfectly visible for the image. Applicant’s with glasses may only keep them on if they have a prescription. Eyeglass frames must not cover the face, and lenses may not be tinted. Sunglasses are always forbidden, even if prescribed as a medical necessity.

 Similar rules apply to headwear. Caps, hats, headbands, helmets, or bonnets are not allowed to be worn. Headwear may only be kept if a person has a religious belief or medical condition (and provides a doctor's note).

Appropriate clothing for Andorra passport photo

As with other official document photos, uniforms are prohibited. People cannot wear white clothes that will disappear into the background. Hair accessories are also not allowed. Those applicants who have beards may keep their beards for their photos. However, any changes to an applicant's appearance (such as shaving the beard off or getting a new facial tattoo) will force the applicant to take a new photo and get a new passport. This is because applicants' current appearance must be reflected in the image.

Common mistakes when taking a passport photo

Applicants must follow specific photo guidelines to get an acceptable photograph. It’s easy to make a mistake and get something wrong. Here are the top three most common mistakes made when taking an Andorra passport photo.

Incorrect photo format & sizing

The most common mistake is incorrect sizing or format. The picture must measure the required size, not be damaged, be in colour, and have a white background with even lightning. The quality of the photo must be high and the face should be visible from forehead to chin. If any one of these is wrong, , the picture will not be accepted.

Photo is edited

Photos that have been edited using color filters and effects or other graphic tools will automatically result in your photo being rejected. It is illegal to edit any official document photo. The photo must show the candidate’s true colours and facial features. Changing your eye colour, hair colour, or Photoshopping your cheekbones to look skinnier will result in instant refusal. This particularly applies to social media filters such as Snapchat or Instagram.

Picture does not reflect current appearance

Another problem is when a passport holder changes their appearance drastically. A passport photo must reflect the candidate's current looks. If a traveller gets a new facial tattoo, gains or loses a lot of weight, shaves off a beard or undergoes plastic surgery, then a new passport photo is in order. The border security agents may not accept your old passport if it no longer looks like you.

Taking an Andorra passport photo at home
