New visa photo standard

 The Chinese Embassy Visa Section is strictly enforcing a new visa photo standard.  

 

We recommend two courses of action:

Print out the official flyer, take it to any location that offers photo service and have a photo taken that follows the guidelines/specs closely. Be Advised, this photo is NOT the standard 2 x 2 inch US passport style photo and many locations may not offer this service.  

If you are unable to find a service provider, we offer this Visa Photo service for our walk-in customers. If you take a photo of yourself and send in the original and unaltered file,  we can adjust it  to print it out and to meet the embassy’s standard for a fee of $10.90.  If you are taking the photo yourself, please follow the direction below:

  1. Its better to have someone help you take the picture.
  2. This picture must be taken at eye level, so try to to lean forward or back ward
  3. This picture must be taken in front of plain white wall.
  4. Sit/stand up straight, both body and face should be facing the camera 
  5. Please dress appropriately, this picture is for a legal documents. Business casual will be sufficient. 
  6. Dark colored clothing preferred, this way it will create a sharp contrast with the plain white background. 
    • If you are wearing a dress shirt, make sure the collars are aligned and not lopping to one side.
    •  If the shirt is white or light in color, please put on a dark colored suite or jacket. 
  7. Please leave plenty of space round the head and shoulders so we have room to make the necessary size adjustments. 
  8. Try your best to show both ears and eyebrows, do your best to fix the hair so it does not get in the way.
  9. Please take off any jewelry or hats.

If you want us to print out the picture, please fill out the credit card authorization sheet and scan it back to us along with the photo file.
