China’s Strict Photo Requirements - Your Photo Could Influence Your Visa Approval
China is one of the top visa destinations in the world with some of the most strictly enforced photo requirements. Photos are required as part of the visa application and must meet very specific rules including size (exactly 48mm tall and 33mm wide), date taken, and facial position among others. If these rules are not met, your visa application could be denied. You can avoid that risk with CIBT’s Digital Photo Service. Use your own camera and take a photo in the comfort of your home or office, then simply upload it to our website. We will take care of the rest and ensure your photo meets government and consular requirements. See how it works.
