The Congo passport photo or visa photo you send should have been taken during the six months prior to you submitting your application, and there cannot be any reflections or imperfections that affect the photograph’s quality. It must be clear and in focus. You must not use an excessive amount of makeup or any other thing that can alter the applicant’s facial features.

If your Congo passport photo or visa photo doesn’t meet the requirements above, the application will likely be refused at the Embassy.

You have to make sure that the set of photographs you submit with your application are high quality, if not, it may get rejected by the Embassy of the Democratic Republic of Congo. Usually, instant-print photo kiosks don’t take pictures that meet the standards needed for your application to be accepted. A huge amount of customers who have been rejected have come to us, and we happily helped them. We offer photos with a high-quality print finish for an affordable price, and we can produce them quickly and efficiently.
