When you apply for a Swedish visa, you are required to submit 2 passport-size photographs in order to complete your application. If your photos do not meet the requirements, the embassy can return your application or, in the worst case, deny you a visa. Hence, it is essential that your submitted photos fulfil the official requirements by the Swedish authorities.
Dimensions: 45 mm x 35 mm
Colors: Colored photos only. Black and white photos are not allowed.
Background: Plain, light grey or cream background. 5-10% grey background is recommended. No shadows.
Face Size: Your face should cover 29 mm - 34 mm (65% - 75%) of the full photo.
Eyes: No “red eyes” or flash reflections.
Head Coverings: Hats or other coverings are not allowed unless worn for religious reasons and only if all facial features are fully visible.
Glasses: Recommended to remove glasses but not mandatory.
Paper: High quality, matt or low gloss paper. Corrugated paper or cardboard is not allowed.
Editing: Photos should not be flipped or edited (for example to remove shadows, smoothen face lines etc).
