  • 5 copies of the photos are needed
  • The photos should be of full face and front view ones
  • The photos should be identical
  • The photos should not have been taken later than six months (within 6 months)
  • Any kind of changes, touch ups done on the photos to change the image is not acceptable
  • The photos should be taken without hats unless there is any medical or religious reason justifying the same
  • Eyeglasses are not allowed in the photos
  • If babies are being photographed, then care should be taken to ensure that their eyes are open
  • The photos should be taken with your mouth closed, with a neutral expression on your face. No smiles, frowns, grins or showing of teeth is allowed. Both the eyes should be open normally and no squinting or raised eyebrows or any other such contrived expression is acceptable.
  • Care should be taken to ensure that the person’s head should be photographed at neither an angle or turned and should be square facing the camera. Even a slight tilt, turn or rotation of the face will not be acceptable. An equal amount of your ears and cheeks on either side should be seen. Your eyes as well as the face should be facing the camera straight.
  • The person being photographed should directly look at the camera and eyes should be open and visible clearly. It is not allowed for any hair to cover the eyes or the frame of the spectacles. The photograph must be taken with the camera lens at the eye-level of the individual whose photograph is being taken and cannot be below or above that level.
  • The photographs should be printed with a resolution of minimum 600 dpi on high quality paper, especially if they are taken with digital cameras. The photograph should be of neutral color and the person’s skin tones must look natural in the photo. There should not be any kind of impurities or creases in the photo. Nor is any kind of manipulation of the photos allowed for removal of spots or lines etc. Only color photos are allowed.
  • If you wear glasses, it is better to take them off and get yourself photographed to be on the safe side. If you decide to take the photo with your glasses on, then it must be ensured that no part of the spectacles frame covers the eyes and that there is no glare on the glasses whatsoever. Sunglasses or tinted glasses are not allowed to adhere to the guidelines of the eyes being visible and recognizable very clear.
  • Head wear of any kind is not allowed. The only exceptions done are for religious reasons. Care should be taken to ensure that the face is visible from the forehead to the lower tip of the chin, even in such cases. Any kind of shadows should not be present on the face. There should be a sharp focus on all parts of the face, with clear contrast.

Tanzanian Visa Photo specifications:

  • The Tanzanian Visa photo requirements are more or less the same as that of the Passport photo mentioned above. The only changes are in that the background should be of white color, and only two copies are required instead of the 5 for the Passport.

We receive our specifications from the High Commission of Tanzania’s guidelines on passport and visa photos, which you can find here.
