UAE Passport Photo requirements:

  • Your passport or visa application needs to contain two colour photos, each measuring 51mm x 51mm.

  • Your photos need to be recent to represent your current appearance. For this reason, they must have been taken within the last six months.
  • Any photo booth pictures, or photos you have taken yourself, will be immediately rejected by the Embassy of the United Arab Emirates.
  • Your photo must be taken against a plain white backdrop, with no shadows visible anywhere in the picture.
  • In the photo, your face should take up between 50 – 70% when printed off, this means it should measure 25mm – 35mm when printed.
  • In the photograph, you must must keep your mouth closed and your eyes open. You will also need to be looking straight into the camera, with your head and eye line level with the lens.
  • Headwear worn for religious or medical reasons is permitted, but your full face must still be visible from chin to forehead, and both sides of the face should be shown.
  • If you wear glasses we recommend that you remove them. The lenses (due to reflections) and frames (due to covering of the applicants eyes) have been know to cause issue in the photographs when they are submitted with the passport or visa application.
  • Photos need to have a suitable level of brightness and contrast, so that they remain clear. They may NOT be digitally altered in any way.

The photograph itself needs to be printed on high quality white paper, which we will be happy to do for you here at Reload Internet in Paddington, London.

Should your photo fail to meet even just one of these regulations set by the Embassy of the United Arab Emirates, then it will be rejected. If you don’t want that to happen to you, then come to our store where we can guarantee that your photo will be accepted with your application.

We receive all of our specifications directly from the official Embassy of the United Arab Emirates passport guidelines on passport and visa photographs.

UAE Passport Photo

Any application for a UAE passport or visa needs to include photos that meet all of the necessary regulations. Any photos you take yourself, or which come from a photo booth, will likely fail to meet all of these regulations, and therefore will be rejected by the Embassy of the United Arab Emirates. This can cause serious delays with your application, and may even affect your travel plans. Your UAE passport photo or visa photo should clearly identify you as the passport/visa holder, so that you don’t encounter any problems when using it. For this reason, it’s best if you leave the job to the professionals – and that’s exactly what we are here to do!
