Please note that different consulates in USA have slightly different instructions for OCI passport photos, and they are subjective too, like face should not be too big or too small-- but we will reprint your photos free if your photos get rejected.
If you are applying to a consulate outside USA, please email us at and let us know the photos requirements published on your consulate website. We will ensure that we provide you accurate OCI photos as per your consulate's specs.
Consulate OCI Photo Requirement

Indian Consulates within USA

San Francisco- Consulate of India

Houston- Consulate of India

Chicago- Consulate of India

New York- Consulate of India

Washington DC- Indian Embassy

Most consulates of India in the USA have oursourced OCI applications to Travisa oursourcing. This has resulted in two imporant changes:
1) Travisa requires 2x2 inch photos fo OCI applications.
2) Travisa officially does not allow glasses in photos. On their website, and in their communications, they clearly mention: "No glasses are allowed to be worn in the photo" so if you are wearing glasses, please provide us a photo without glasses or you will be liable for rejections if any.
(However when we called their office on Friday, May 13, 2011, Alicia of Travisa told us that glasses are OK provided eyes are clearly visiible).

From Travisa website- OCI section:
Photos are required to be recent, identical, sized 2 inches by 2 inches, in color, depicting front pose against light background on photographic paper. Do not wear glasses in the photo. Detailed information about photos can be viewed at OCI Photo Instructions.

Indian Consulates in Canada 51x51 mm photos

OCI Photo size requirement from the Master source- Ministry of Home Affairs, Govt of India

Photograph to be affixed on the application should be of square shape of size not less than 51*51mm (with 80% coverage by face). It should have light color background (not white) without border with front view of personís head and shoulders showing the full face in the middle of the photograph. Photographs that do not conform to these standards will be rejected and may cause a delay in processing the applications.


OCI Photos - Customer Feedback

Thank you very much for your thorough and expedited service with visa photos for my family. I just want to let you know that I must have visited about 10 stores including 3 Walgreens and 7 CVS and no one could do the 35mm x 35mm photos for me. I am glad I found your website; your service and follow up have been superb.

I have already recommended your services to two Indians today who are looking for visa photos.

Additional Detail about OCI Photo Requirements:

If you are in the USA, the Internet, and the Web-site of your consulate itself can confuse you. As an example, on the San Francisco consulate website itself, on one page, they ask applicants to submit 3 photos and on others they ask you to submit 2 copies with their OCI application! (We confirmmed over phone with them that they need only 2 copies.) Regarding 'OCI Photo size' and 'OCI Photo Background', every Consulate of India in the USA has its own guidelines!! San Francisco requires 2 x2 size photos with white or off-white background even though the photo sample on their website is having colored background!!!

Embassy of India, Washington DC also seems to require 2x2 photos. Not sure if they want white or colored background. (If you know this, please let us know for the benefit of other fellow Indians in the USA)

Consulate of India, New York seems to have started asking for 2x2 inch photos too (since Feb 2010). Their website asks for color backgrouond (not white) but the document with details requirements for photos (the pdf document) asks for white or off-white background!!! We wish they were consistent in their requirements throughout their website!

OCI Photo specs Indian HIgh Commision in New Zealand

If you are applying to New Zealand High Commision of India (section 6), they want 51x51mm photos on colored background. After placing your order, email us and let us know that you need OCI photos for Indian High Commission in New Zealand.
