What type of photo is required for an Indian visa online from Switzerland?

For interstate travelers who want to visit India, they have to prepare some of their recent photos with a photo of the biographical page of their passport. For Swiss travelers, the Indian government has enforced some face photo requirements for an e visa. This means that every Swiss applicants’ digital photo for an e visa must adhere to the following standards:

  • Format - JPEG
  • Photo size - minimum 10 KB and maximum 1 MB
  • The picture’s height must match its width
  • The photo should show clearly the front head, entire face with an eye open
  • The color of the photo must be plain light or white
  • The photo must be taken with white background and no shadows
  • The photo has no borders

In terms of passport photo, Swiss travelers have to prepare a scan of the biographical page of their passport which is still valid for 6 months from the date of arrival. This photo must be minimum 10 KB and maximum 300 KB in photo size.
