Immigrant Visa Photo Requirements
Regardless of age, all U.S. Immigrant Visa applicants must present two un-retouched color photographs, approximately 2 X 2 inches (5 X 5 cm) in size, taken on a white background. Please read the following instructions carefully. We cannot use photographs which do not meet these requirements:
1. The applicant must submit two full-face photo, taken within the past six months. A full-face photo is one in which the applicant is facing the camera directly.
2. The face should cover about 50 percent of the area of the photo.
3. Photos must be taken against a white background.
4. Photographs should measure 2 inches square (approximately 5 centimeters square) with the head centered in the frame. The head (measured from top of the hair to the bottom of the chin) should measure between 1inch to 1 3/8 inches (25mm to 35 mm) with the eye level between 1 1/8 inch to 1 3/8 inches (28mm to 35mm) from the bottom of the photo.
5. The photograph must clearly identify the applicant.
6. Applicant must not wear eyeglasses.
7. The applicant should be dressed in normal street attire without a hat. Uniforms and/or head coverings, which obscure the applicant’s features, hair, or hairline, may not be worn. If the applicant must wear head cover, the ears and the forehead must be seen clearly.
8. Photos should be printed without borders.
9. Photos taken in front of busy, patterned, or dark backgrounds will not be accepted.
10. Instant type photographs or digital quality photographs are not acceptable. Photographs should be taken with a standard single lens reflex type camera using film which requires standard processing.
