Mexican Passport Photo and Visa Photo specifications:

  • The photographs must be 45mm x 35mm

  • The passport photos should be taken on a white background. If a white back ground is not readily available, any other lightly coloured background will do.
  • Ensure you are looking directly at the camera lens. Any slight distortion could lead to rejection of the passport photo.
  • Although three copies of passport photos are required, four copies should be submitted. This is because there are chances that that an extra photo will be asked for while application for passport is being processed.
  • About 80% of the photo should be occupied with your face.
  • The same requirements needed for Mexican passport photos are needed for Mexican visa photos
  • When taking a Mexican Visa photo, ensure your two ears are clearly visible
  • You should not have any jewelry on.
  • Glasses should not be worn as their frames could cover your facial features
  • The visa photo should not be older than one month before it gets submitted. If the Visa photo has exceeded a month, it cannot be used anymore.
  • It is important to be aware that citizens of some countries can enter Mexico without a visa. Making an assumption is not good enough, it is advised that you pay the Mexican embassy in your country a visit to confirm if you need a visa.
  • There are no very strict rules binding the specification of Mexican visa and passport photos. Nonetheless, this should not be taken for granted.

Mexican Passport Photo and Visa Photo specifications for infants:

  • There are no real changes in the requirements for adult passport photos and passport photos for infants.
  • When taking passport photos for babies, the following should be strictly adhered to
  • The baby should be well rested. This will help them maintain a good mood while the photos are being taken.
  • Ensure that the baby’s eyes are wide open
  • It is recommended that many photos of the baby should be taken. This will help you get a perfect photo without so much stress.
  • If the baby is too young to sit, lay the baby on a platform such as a dining table. Prior to placing the baby on a dining table, put a white cloth over the table.
  • The baby should be dressed in dark colours. This will help create a contrast between the white back ground and the baby.

If your Mexican passport photo or visa photo fails to meet every single one of the requirements above, then it is more than likely your application will be rejected. Come to Reload Internet for your Mexican passport photo or visa photo and you can avoid this!

Our specifications are taken from the Embassy of Mexico’s guidelines on passport and visa photographs, available here.
