What Is Required to Apply for A UK Visa?

A UK visa is a document issued by the UK government that provides permission for you to gain entry into the UK. Different countries have various requirements for their visa. Here we list the documents you need to prepare if you want to apply for a UK visa.  

  • UK visa application form.
  • Two photographs. Your photos should be taken within the last three months.
  • Your valid passport. It must be valid for three more months beyond the date you plan to leave the UK after your trip.
  • Proof of financial ability to pay for living expenses in the UK.
  • Proof of accommodation.
  • Detailed travel itinerary.
  • Biometric information including your fingerprints and a biometric photo.
  • Tuberculosis test results.
  • Pay the UK visa fees.

Photo Requirements for UK Visa Photo

As we mentioned above, 2 identical photographs are needed when applying for the UK visa. So let's check the photo requirements before you get one.

  • The photograph must be in color. Black and white photographs will not be accepted.
  • The photo should be recently taken within the last three months.
  • Your photo can not be blurry, lined, or marked.
  • Printed in a white high-quality gloss or matte photographic paper, in color.
  • No “Red-eye effect” from the camera flash.


Technical specifications for digital photographs:

  • Dimensions: minimum 600 x 750 pixels wide and tall.
  • Photo file size: 50KB – 10 MB.
  • Image file format: must be either JPG or JPEG.

UK Visa Photo Requirements for Children

Your kids are also required to possess their visa when entering other countries. For little children, some requirements are somewhat relaxed:

  • Children under 6 need not to look directly at the camera or keep a plain expression.
  • Children under one do not have to have their eyes open.
  • You can support your children with your hand as long as you can make sure any part of your body will not show up in the picture.

Nevertheless, other regulations of children's UK visa photos are as strict as those of adults.

  • Children must be on their own in the picture without holding toys or using dummies.
  • Children above six years old need to fix their eyes on the camera lens and can not smile, cry, frown or giggle.
  • Children should keep their eyes open and mouths closed when taking their photos.
  • Children's faces should be in the center of the picture and can not tilt their heads.

Under What Situations Should I Take A New Visa Photo?

The aim of submitting a biometric photo is to help the facial recognition system or government officials identify you when entering another country. Therefore, if your appearance changes significantly so that you fail to prove your identity from your picture, you need to take a new UK visa photo. If you have the following experiences, you should offer a new visa photo.

  • The photo you took is more than three months old.
  • You have undergone severe facial trauma or surgery.
  • Your figure has changed greatly, for example, losing or gaining weight significantly.
  • You have added or removed a visible facial tattoo or piercing.
  • You have become a religious believer and need to wear a uniform or head covering.
  • You have experienced a gender transition.


Common Mistakes When Taking UK Visa Photos at Home

These days, more and more people try to take their visa photos at home because it is cost-effective and more convenient in this busy world. However, we are not professional photographers and have limited equipment. Therefore, we tend to make errors when taking visa pictures at home. Here we collect some most frequently made mistakes for your reference.

  • Put on exaggerated makeup that changes your appearance to a great extent.
  • Wear sunglasses or colored glasses.
  • The frames of your eyeglasses cover your eyes or their lenses cause reflections or shine in the picture.
  • Smile or show your teeth.
  • Wear clothes that have the same color as the photo background.
  • Your hair covers your eyes, eyebrows, ears, or the edge of your face.
  • Wear a hat or head covering not for medical or religious reasons.
  • Other people or subjects show up in your picture.
