UK Visa Photograph Guidelines
These guidelines must be strictly adhered to when submitting an application. If photographs do not meet these requirements the application will be returned to you.

Photographs should be:

Taken against a light background (white/off-white/cream/light grey etc) so that features are distinguishable and contrast against the background.

Coloured, clear and of good quality.

Printed on normal photographic paper.

2.5 inches to 3.0 inches in length and 1.5 inches wide.

Full face (without sunglasses and normally without a hat or other head covering, unless the applicant wears such items because of their religious belief or ethnic background).
