Pan card photo (2.5×3.5 photo size) specifications:

  • We will ensure that your photograph measures 2.5cm x 3.5cm, with 60-70% 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 21-25mm.

Pan card photo (2.5 x 3.5cm photo size)

  • We will ensure that your photograph features a white background, without any marks or shadows visible on the applicant nor the backdrop
  • Remember, your Pan card photograph must have been taken within the last 6 months prior to your application being submitted or it is not valid.
  • We will ensure that you 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
  • We will ensure that your head position is looking 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
  • We will ensure that your photograph is printed on high-quality photo paper with a minimum DPI of 600

Your Pan card photo must meet all of the necessary requirements listed above, otherwise it will most likely be rejected when you attempt to submit it along with your application due to a photo error. We guarantee that the Pan ID photo we provide you with will pass first time with your application!

We receive our specifications directly from the Indian Embassy’s official guidelines on passport and visa photographs which can be found on their website here.
