Italy Passport Photos Specifications

Italy Visa Photo requirements

Keep in mind that the photo for an Italian visa must be shot in the last six months and must be stapled or pasted directly on the application form.  The Italian passport photos should be in color with a white background. The size of the head of the subject must be positioned in the center. Hats and head coverings are not allowed. Wearing such accessories due to religious beliefs is accepted, however, the head covering shouldn’t make any face feature unavailable. Subjects can’t wear sunglasses on the photos unless they have a special recommendation from a certified doctor.

Due to the fact that these regulations are updated from time to time, it is highly recommended to check whether there are updates in a consulate or embassy – and the Staff in Reload Internet will always be up to date with the latest requirements.

A few things you should know about Italy Passport Photos

If you want to go to Italy for any reason, you will have to bring a passport unless you are a citizen of some of the following countries – the UK, the USA, Venezuela, Singapore, New Zealand, Australia, Japan, Costa Rica, Chile, Canada, Brazil, Argentina or Switzerland. So, if you are a citizen of some of these countries and you are visiting Italy as a tourist, you don’t need a visa or passport – all you need is a proper document of identification. When you are applying for an Italian visa, you will need to provide a few documents like valid passport with at least one completely blank page, an application form and proof that you have sufficient funds to stay in the country for a certain period of time. In addition to these documents, you will need one standard passport-size photo with the application for a visa.

The Gross Domestic Product or GDP is considered to be one of the most important indicators of the strength of any national economy. According to this measurement, Italy is the 7th strongest economy in the world. In addition, Italy is among the ten biggest exporters of manufactured goods according to the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD).

Best-known for its old and unique culture, vivid traditions and religious sites and practice, Italy is a country visited by millions of tourists from every corner of our planet.

Both explorers and tourists place Italy high on their wish-list. Nowadays, Italy is a republic and respected world heritage site blessed with beautiful nature and unique landscape.
