B 15. What kind of passport photo should I submit?

In order to receive your student identity card the university requires your photo. The photo is needed as a JPEG file and it has to meet biometric standards: meaning a high quality photo (3x4cm at 300dpi which equals 355x475 pixel) of your face only, without sunglasses hats, etc., except for religious reasons. The face should be centered and photo borderless, focused and sharp. You will need a biometrical photo as well for your residence permit here in Germany.
