Portuguese visa photo requirements are the same as all Schengen visa requirements. 

You will need the following:

  • Two photos that are not older than 6 months
  • Photo size should be 35x45mm
  • Photos should be in colour
  • The applicant’s head should be at least 70% of the photo
  • The applicant should look straight at the camera
  • The applicant must have a neutral face expression (no smiles)
  • If you wear glasses, avoid flash glare
  • Avoid clothing matching the background

 Should you not match this criteria, it’s likely your application could be rejected. This could add delays and costs of your application.
