Poland passport and visa photo requirements, rules, guidelines, and specifications

As illustrated, there are numerous specifics involved with passport or visa photos. The information provided offers a general overview of the requirements. However, there are still several aspects to comprehend and consider before proceeding with taking an adequate photo.

  • From the bottom of your head to the top of your forehead should measure between 30mm and 36mm. This is about 70-80% of the overall image.
  • Avoid looking away, tilting your head or taking a picture portrait style. Your face should be squared with the camera and eyes looking directly at the lens.
  • Eyes need to be completely visible. Eyeglasses are allowed only if the lenses are not tinted or glared, the rims are thin, and it doesn’t cast a shadow on the face.
  • Unlike other countries, Poland requires 3 photos for their passport application.
  • Hats and other headwear are not permitted unless for religious or medical purposes. Even so, the face still needs to be fully visible.
  • Uniforms are usually not permitted unless the clothing is worn daily for religious reasons.
  • Lighting. The light must be even across the face, reflect a true likeness of skin tone, and not be too dark or bright. No shadows can be in the photo.
  • Photos must be printed on high-quality glossy paper.

Rules and requirements for babies, infants, and newborns

If you're planning to take the whole family on vacation, it's important to note that each member needs their own passport or visa, complete with individual photos. Children should be photographed separately, adhering to the same guidelines mentioned previously. Additionally, there are specific tips and requirements for photographing infants that can help achieve a clearer and more effective image.

  • Be sure there are no other people in the picture with the infant. This includes parents and their hands (if holding the baby).
  • Toys, blankets, bonnets, or other objects are not permitted in the photo.
  • It’s preferred to take the picture with the baby laying down. Place a light-colored sheet or cloth behind the baby to give the ideal background color and hide any patterns. This can also be used when placing the child in a car seat.
  • Be aware that the photo must show the child’s eyes open, mouth closed, and facing the camera. It may take a few shots before the correct photo is taken.
