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.
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:
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
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.
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.
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).
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Thanks to modern technology, it is now easy for people to take their own official document photos. You can take your passport picture using your smartphone!
Passport photo online provides tools which enable applicants to scan their snapshots and turn them into government-approved passport-ready photographs in seconds.
The Passport Photo Online website allows you to choose which document the picture is for, and then upload the picture from your device. This can be done from a laptop, desktop computer, tablet, or smartphone. The website provides artificial scanning, cropping, background cleanup and red-eye removal. Passport Photo Online not only speeds up the process but also makes candidates' lives easier. You won’t have to worry about the white background, the red-eye effect, or if you are following the specific Andorra picture guideline.
Our passport photo checker and other tools enable each candidate to comfortably take their picture anywhere and edit it to the desired standard. We scan your picture and give you information about what is wrong with the picture (if anything) and what needs to be improved. If the picture is usable, scanning will accept the picture. Then editing may be done to the picture to get it to match the required specifications.
Mobile apps generally aim to speed up a certain process. For instance, instead of visiting a bank, people may see their bank statements on their mobile app. Well, the same thing applies to photo booths - the “digital photo booth” speeds up the process of getting passport pictures taken and makes the life of the user easier and more comfortable.
The iPhone passport photo app is available for download in the app store. It works exactly the same as the website service. App requires IOS 12 system or above (this applies to iPhone, iPad, iPod or Mac). It is free for download and its size is 47,4 MB.
For Android users, the Android passport photo app is available in the google play store. The app size is 13M, it is also free of charge, and the system requires it to be a version 5 or above. The app is also available in many languages.

According to Henley Passport Index, an Andorra passport holder can enter 168 destinations without a visa. It ranks 19th out of 199 passports. Note - Andora is not part of Schengen or the European Union (similar to Monaco or Vatican City).
Eligible individuals for an Andorra passport are the ones who hold residency (active or passive) for at least 20 years in Andorra and have a clean criminal record. Those who study in Andorra’s educational institution, and are a resident for 10 years may apply for an Andorra passport if they renounce their original nationality. Lastly, individuals who end up marrying an Andorran citizen may apply for citizenship and passport after three years of marriage.
Note: Andorra does not grant citizenship by investment.
After spending the required time in Andorra and renouncing their original nationality, people may apply for an Andorra passport. Required documents for a passport include:
