My first pictures weren’t high enough quality, I received an email right away asking for new pictures, and within minutes received an answer with passport picture attached that would work. Highly recommend! Thank you!

Russia Visa requirements and application

Photo is one of the most important elements during the visa application. The picture will be positively verified by the embassy official if it meets official requirements. Recommended photo size is 3,5 x 4,5 cm. The picture should have a balanced contrast, sharpness and lightning, hence, it is highly advised to use the service of an experienced photographer. The photo should be taken against a plain and uniform background. It should be printed in color, on a high quality photograph paper. The person in the photo should face the camera with eyes turned directly towards it. It is obligatory not to cover the face or hairline – it should remain clear and one is not allowed to cover it with hair or jewellery. While posing for a photograph one should close the mouth and have a neutral face expression, without any emotions.
