German Passport Photograph

German Passport Photograph Requirements


German Passport Photograph

  • Height x Width 45x35mm.
  • Head Size 32-36mm.
  • The photo must clearly show the person’s facial features from the bottom of the chin to the crown, as well as the left and right sides of the face. The face must take up 70 – 80% of the photo. This corresponds to a height of 32 – 36mm.
  • Because it is often difficult to determine where the top of the head would be without hair, photos should be rejected only if the face measures less than 27mm or more than 40mm.
  • In the case of voluminous hairstyles, the entire head (including hair) must be visible without reducing the size of the face, if possible. The face must be centred in the photo.
  • Should be looking directly into the camera, front facing. No hats or masks, religious headgear is allowed, but should properly show the face.
  • Glasses are allowed but no reflection or glare from on the lenses is allowed. The eyes must be clearly visible.
  • Background should be plain white/off white with no shadows.
  • Photographs should provide a full frontal view of the head, neck and top of the shoulders with ears, as much as possible, clearly visible. Exposed shoulders and chest are to be avoided.
  • When the photograph is cut to a size, there should be a margin of 3mm to 4mm between the head and the edge of the photograph.
  • Babies under 1 year can have their eyes closed.
