Specific standards and requirements play a significant role in the success of any visa application. Get the full details of the Nepal Visa photo requirements and size in this article.

Guidelines for your Nepal visa photo

Before setting off to explore Nepal, a treasure trove nestled in the heart of Asia, securing a Nepal visa may be a step on your journey, depending on your eligibility.

Follow these guidelines to ensure your photos are flawless for both paper and online submissions:

  • Recency: Your photo must capture your present look, taken within the last six months.
  • Dimensions: The ideal size is 35 mm x 45 mm, with your face occupying 70-80% of the photo's height.
  • Quality: Opt for a color photo with high resolution, printed on premium quality paper.
  • Background: Choose a plain white or off-white backdrop, free from patterns or shadows.
  • Head position: Face the camera straight on, keeping your head level and centered.
  • Expression: Maintain a neutral expression with your mouth closed and eyes open.
  • Lighting: Ensure the lighting is even, without shadows or reflections on your face or behind you.
  • Eyewear: Glasses should not produce reflections or obscure your eyes. Tinted glasses and sunglasses are not acceptable.
  • Head coverings: Allowed solely for religious purposes, without hiding any facial features.
  • Accessories: Minimal and subtle jewelry is preferred, ensuring it doesn't alter your facial appearance. Avoid wearing a tika for the photo, which could lead to rejection.

Nepal visa photos for infants and children: Requirements and tips

Taking Nepal visa photos for children and infants requires attention to certain details, despite the basic criteria being similar to adults. Here are tailored guidelines to navigate the unique challenges of photographing young ones:

  • Eyes and eyewear: It's crucial for the child’s eyes to be open and visible. Capturing the right moment with infants may take extra patience. Glasses should only be worn if necessary for medical reasons, ensuring there's no reflection on the lenses.

  • Facial expression: Unlike adults who must maintain a neutral expression, children, especially infants, are given some leeway. Aim for a relatively neutral expression when possible.

  • Clothing and accessories: Dress the child in simple, everyday clothes. Hats, pacifiers, and other head coverings are typically not allowed, except for religious headwear, which should not obstruct the face.

  • Supporting the child: Ensure that parents or guardians are not visible in the photo. If support is needed to keep the child upright or in place, make sure your hands or any part of you don't appear in the frame.

  • Props: Avoid using props. The child should be the sole focus of the photo without any additional elements to distract.

iVisa tip: For infants who can't yet sit or stand, you can take the photo from above as they lay on a flat surface. The background should be plain and light-colored to keep the focus on the infant.
