Most rejections are due to low quality photographs. Please ensure you upload a high quality photograph to prevent delays. We request that you visit a professional photo studio to have your passport photo taken. You need to obtain a digital file of the image to be forwarded to VisaHQ.
The image MUST meet the following specifications:
• The photo must be a full, centered headshot of only the face and shoulders.
• The photo must show a full front view of the face with the top of the shoulders squared to the camera. The head must not be tilted to the side.
• The applicant must have a neutral facial expression (no smiling, mouth closed) and look directly at the camera.
• The photo must be clear, sharp, and in-focus, with no blurry or shaded areas. To avoid glare or shadows, the lighting must be uniform across the face and shoulders, including around the ears and in the background.
• The photo must show the applicant’s natural skin tone.
• The photo must be taken against a plain white or light-colored background. There must be enough contrast that the applicant’s features and clothing are easily distinguishable from the backdrop.
