What are the Dutch passport photo requirements?

Your passport photo has to meet very strict Dutch passport photo requirements. Please make sure you refer to the photo matrix instructions before having your photo taken.

You are advised to print out these instructions and take them to your passport photographer. Note: US standard passport photo measurements differ from those required in the Netherlands.

If you are having difficulties finding a photographer who can take a photo that meets Dutch passport photo requirements please contact your closest Dutch Embassy or Consulate. They can provide you with a list of approved photographers.
