Indian Passport Photo

Indian Passport photos are 2x2 inch (51x51m) size for Indian consulates in the USA. They are similar to USA Passport photos with one major difference. Indian passport photos require the head to be much bigger compared to the size of the head required in USA passport photos. USA requires the head to be between 1.12 to 1.37 inches while Indian passport photos ask for the head to cover around 80% of the photo.

Important Note: Like US Passport photos, Indian passport photos are now required to be without glasses as per a note by Indian Consulate in San Francisco. Also, want photos with a Colored Shirt hence please do not take photo in light colored shirt or dress India Passport no glasses
