Japanese Visa Photo specifications:

  • Your photograph must measure 4.5cm x 4.5cm, with 60-80% of the photograph being covered by the applicant’s face. This means that when printed, the length from the bottom of the chin to the top of the forehead must be between 27-36mm.

Japanese visa photo

  • Your photograph must feature a white background, without any marks or shadows visible on the applicant nor the backdrop
  • Your photograph must have been taken within the 6 months prior to your application being submitted
  • You must adopt a neutral expression when the photograph is being taken. Both eyes must be open and looking straight into the camera lens, as well as your mouth being closed
  • Your head must be square and straight to the camera, with the camera lens at eye level when the photograph is captured
  • Headwear is prohibited, exceptions can be made for religious, cultural or medical reasons. Even under these circumstances, the applicant’s full facial features must be clearly visible from the bottom of their chin to the top of their forehead
  • If you happen to wear glasses, we recommend removing them to ensure that your photograph will pass. Reflections from the lenses, as well as the frames obscuring the applicant’s features, are very common reasons for photograph failure
  • Your photographs must be printed on high-quality photo paper with a minimum DPI of 600

Your Japan visa photo must meet all of the requirements listed above, otherwise it will be rejected when you try and submit it with your application to the Japanese Embassy.

All of our specifications are taken from the Embassy of Japan’s passport and visa photo guidelines.
