China Visa Photo - All You Need to Know

China visa photo guidelines

Follow these guidelines for a perfect China visa photo:

  • The photo should be a recent (not older than 6 months) colour photograph
  • Your full face must be visible, with a neutral expression
  • The head should be centred in the photo, with both ears visible
  • The photo should be printed on high-quality photographic paper

The visa photo for China should meet all the official requirements stated below.

China visa photo dimensions 

Your visa photo must measure 33×48 mm. There can be no borders around the photo. 

China visa photo background

The background needs to be white or close to white. Bear in mind that there can be no patterns on the background, shadows or background lighting. No other person or objects should be visible in the photo. Make sure your clothing is not of the same colour as the background so as not to blend into it.

Facial expression in a Chinese visa photo

As with most visa photos, the Chinese one also requires you to maintain a neutral facial expression, keeping your mouth closed and eyes open. Smiling is not allowed, as it can result in your application being rejected. Furthermore, make sure your face is centred and that you're looking directly at the camera.

China visa photo: clothing and accessories

When it comes to wardrobe choices appropriate for a Chinese visa photo, you should opt for everyday clothing without patterns. The clothes should be in a different colour from the background so as not to interfere with the contrast. 

Additionally, head coverings are allowed only for religious or medical reasons, and they should not obstruct any part of the face.

Big pieces of jewellery should be avoided on the China visa photo, especially if they might obscure parts of the face or cause reflections.

What to avoid in a China visa photo

There are certain items that should be removed prior to taking the photo. They can be found below:

  • Do not wear glasses with tinted lenses or heavy frames that obscure your eyes; glasses with clear lenses are allowed
  • Avoid wearing any headdress or head coverings unless it's for religious reasons
  • Your face should be clearly visible in the photo, so avoid wearing any scarves or masks that cover your face
