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

The photo for your student ID card must meet biometric standards: It should be a high quality (3 x 4 cm at 300 dpi which equals 355 x 475 pixel) frontal portrait of your uncovered face (no sunglasses, hats, etc., except for religious reasons) in front of a plain, bright background. The photo should be borderless, focused, and centered. You will need at least 2 copies: one for your student ID and one for your German residence permit.
