The Ugandan High Commission have now made their visa and passport photograph requirements very strict. It is therefore extremely important that you visit a passport photo studio that is fully equipped to take produce photographs of sufficient quality – otherwise, you might find that your application ends up rejected when you submit it due to a photograph error and you may have to apply all over again. Fortunately, Reload Internet specializes in taking Ugandan passport and visa photos, and can guarantee that we will get the job done right the first time around.

When you have your Ugandan passport photo or visa photo captured at Reload Internet, it comes with a guarantee to pass first time when you submit it to the High Commission. We can guarantee this because of our process. Firstly, we will capture you photograph with the correct background and lighting.

  • Photos need to be recent to reflect your current appearance- no older than six months
  • Photos cannot be mounted
  • You must not wear headwear in your photo
  • The photo needs to clearly show your full face, from crown to chin and ear to ear. You hair cannot cover any part of your face- it must be tucked back. However, the top of your hair still needs to be fully visible in the photo
  • Photos must be taken against a plain white background, without any pattern whatsoever. Only the applicant can be visible in the photo, and there must not be any shadows in the picture, either on your face or on the background
  • You must be facing the camera head-on while the photo is taken
  • You will need to keep your head completely level while the photo is being taken. Both sides of your face should be equally visible
  • You must look directly into the camera while the photo is being taken. Your eyes need to be fully open and visible- they cannot be covered by glasses frames or your hair. The camera itself needs to be positioned at eye level, so that your eyes are in the center of the photo
  • Babies and small children who cannot sit up by themselves should instead be photographed lying down. No other person can be visible in the photo- this includes hands used to support the baby
  • The photos themselves must be printed on high-quality photo paper, with no gloss on the reverse side- this is included as part of our service, and we will print the photos while you wait
  • With Uganda visa photos, the requirements are the same as above, except you only need to include two photos in your application

Should your Ugandan passport photo or visa photo fail to meet all of the criteria mentioned above, then it will likely be declined when you submit your application to the High Commission. To ensure that this does not happen to you, come to Reload Internet for your Ugandan passport photo or visa photo.

Our specifications are taken from the official High Commission of Uganda’s guidelines on passport and visa photographs, which can be found here.
