Photo Requirements

Enclose one recent passport-size photo with these requirements:

  • In color WITH A WHITE BACKGROUND
  • Printed on matte or glossy photo-quality paper
  • 2 x 2 inches (51 x 51 mm) in size
  • Sized such that the head is between 1 inch and 1 3/8 inches (between 25 and 35 mm) from the bottom of the chin to the top of the head
  • Because the photo background is white, avoid white clothing and white scarves
  • Taken within the last 6 months to reflect your current appearance
  • Taken in full-face view directly facing the camera
  • With a neutral facial expression and both eyes open
