Watch our video on Cuban passport and visa photographs to learn more information and to see how efficient we are with producing them:

Any Cuban visa or passport application needs to include photos that meet the Cuban Embassy’s strict requirements. Often, photo booth pictures are not able to reach the level of quality that is required, and this means you will have to start your application again if they refuse the Cuban passport photo or visa photo that you submit with the application. This can lead to serious delays that could even affect your travel plans – so you definitely want to get it right first time around. A clear photo also ensures that you won’t run into any trouble when you are using your Cuban passport or visa. We make sure that we give you the photos you need to keep everything running smoothly.

Cuban Passport Photo and Visa Photo specifications:

  • Your application will need to contain two full colour photographs, each measuring 50mm x 50mm

  • Your photo needs to reflect your current appearance, so that you may be identified by it. For this reason, photos need to be taken within the last six months
  • Any photo that you have attempted to take yourself, as well as those taken in photo booths and on home computers, are liable to be rejected by the Cuban embassy
  • The photo must be taken against a plain white backdrop, without any shadows visible anywhere in the picture
  • 50 – 70% of the photograph should be covered by your face. When printed, this means your head should measure between 25mm – 35mm from top to bottom
  • While your photo is being taken, you must maintain a neutral expression, with your mouth completely shut. Furthermore, you should also look straight into the camera while the picture is taken, and keep your head perfectly level
  • Religious and medical headwear is permitted in your photo, so long as it does not obscure any part of your full face
  • Your photo is meant to reflect your everyday appearance, so that it can be easily used to identify you. For this reason, if you usually wear a hearing aid or a similar article, then it is advised that you keep them on while the photo is being taken
  • If you wear glasses however, we recommend that you remove them as the lenses (due to reflections) and frames (covering of the applicants eyes) are known to have caused issues with Cuban passport and visa applications
  • When the photo is taken, it must be of suitable brightness and contrast levels. The photo may NOT be digitally altered afterwards- any altered photos will likely be immediately rejected

The physical photo needs to be printed on high-quality, white paper, with a print finish. We will gladly do this for you as soon as the picture has been taken here at Reload Internet in Paddington, London.

Should your photo fail to meet even one of the strict requirements listed here, then it is likely that it will be rejected by the Cuban Embassy. To ensure your photo is accepted the first time you submit it, come to us, and we will take care of everything for you.

We receive our specifications directly from the official Embassy of Cuba’s guidelines on passport and visa photographs, which can be found here.
