European Union Visa Photo - All You Need to Know

European Union visa photo requirements

The photo requirements for a European Union visa application include:

  • Recent and colour photograph
  • Specific size
  • Specific background
  • Quality standards

Glasses or a head covering in European Union visa photo

You can wear glasses or head coverings for your European Union visa photo, but only if they do not obstruct your face. The photo should show a clear and unobstructed view of your face.

European Union visa photo clothing and background

There are clothing and background restrictions for a European Union visa photo. Clothing should be neutral and not blend in with the background. The background should be a plain and light-coloured wall, and not have any patterns, shadows, or other distracting elements.

European Union visa photo size and resolution

The size and resolution required for a European Union visa photo may vary depending on the country or embassy processing your application. Typically, the photo should be 35mm x 45mm and have a resolution of at least 600 pixels per inch (ppi).

European Union visa photo selfie

Whether or not you can use a selfie for your European Union visa photo depends on the specific requirements of the embassy or consulate processing your visa application. Generally, it is recommended to use a professional photo taken by a photographer, rather than a selfie.
