  • You need to remember that the background must be a plain, white background that is free of any sort of pattern.
  • It must be able to capture your natural skin tones with an adequate amount of contrast and brightness.
  • Afghanistan officials do not accept pictures that have red eye or any flash reflections.
  • It is required that when you get these photos taken, you will need to be looking directly at the camera so that the picture captures both sides of your face evenly.
  • You cannot have anything covering your eyes, including hair and headwear.
  • In fact, headwear is generally not accepted in these photos unless there is a religious reason for you to do so.
  • There cannot be any shadows in the background nor can there be any other objects or people in the photo’s background.
  • The person who is getting their photo taken must look directly into the camera and not have their picture taken in a portrait style, where the face is tilted or turned.
  • This is important because the image needs to capture an equal amount of ear and cheeks on either side of your face.
  • Your eyes will need to be open and clearly visible otherwise the image will not be accepted.
  • This means that your glasses frames cannot cover your eyes as well as you cannot have a reflection or any headwear covering your eyes.
  • This includes the fact that you are not allowed to wear any glasses that are tinted or sunglasses, as these will also obscure your eyes.
  • After the photograph has been taken, it needs to be printed out on high-quality photo paper.
  • The print resolution must be at least 600 dpi, something that is especially important if your image was captured with a digital camera.
  • The submitted photos cannot be digitally altered in any way otherwise they will not be accepted by officials.
  • It is also important that the images that you have submitted are not creased nor have any other damage to them, which would also cause the application to be rejected.

Afghanistan Visa Photo specifications:

  • For the most part, the visa will hold the same requirements as the passport in regards to the photos. The only real difference is that the visa photo will need to be 35mm x 45mm.
