We will ensure that your photos are of high quality so the Egyptian Consulate accepts your application. Most instant photo kiosks don’t have the equipment needed to get high resolution pictures and meet the specifications set by the Egyptian Consulate. As mentioned earlier, meeting the standards set by the Egyptian Consulate is necessary, and numerous customers, who were once rejected, had their applications for Egyptian visa or passport accepted after going through us for their photos rather than using an instant photo kiosk or home computer.

By going with Reload Internet for your Egyptian passport photo or visa photo, we could prevent possible delays that can occur with your application if the photographs cause an issue. We ensure all the requirements for your photos are met, and you will receive clear photos that identify you easily when you enter Egypt.

Your picture must not be older than six months, and there should be no reflections, red eye or shadows that could affect the image’s quality. The photo should have a clear focus and no excessive makeup use or other image altering products that could drastically affect your appearance.

Egyptian Visa Photo

  • Photos submitted should be six months old at most.
  • We recommend you do not use photo booths or home computers for having photos taken, since the Egyptian government rejects this quality of photo often.
  • Background for the photos should either be off-white or white, without any shadows on the background or the applicant’s face (applicant should preferably wear dark colours in the photo)
  • The applicants face should make up about 60% – 70% of the photo

  • In case you wear glasses, we suggest you remove them while taking photo, or ensure they don’t hide your eyes or cause reflection in your photos (lens reflection is common). Also, ensure the frames don’t cover your eyes at all.
  • Photos should be suitably bright and the contrast should be proportionate, printed on glossy high quality paper for high resolution and not altered digitally.

Anything even slightly away from these specifications and your photo may not be accepted by the Egyptian Consulate. At Reload Internet we make sure it doesn’t happen.
