US F1 OPT Photo Guidelines

US F1 OPT Face and Posture Requirements

The positioning of the face and body in the photo for passport/visa photo is very important. You have to stand straight for the camera and look directly into the lens. Half-profile photos are not accepted and will result in application rejection.

US F1 OPT Face expression Requirements

Keep your facial expressions plain, neutral. Don't smile. The mouth must be closed and the head must be kept straight (do not tilt it in any side!). Eyes When posing you have to have your eyes open and visible. Especially the colour of the iris must be visible. Make sure that there’s no ‘red eye’ effect in the photo. Also, you can't have hair in front of your eyes, so if you're wearing bangs — lean it aside.

US F1 OPT Hair Requirements

There are no special guidelines for hairstyles on passport/visa photos. The hair may be tense or loose, but it must not cover the face. Even a small fragment of it. It is best to brush them backwards, but the ears needn’t be visible. Remember that the forehead and eyebrows should be visible, so don’t cover eyebrows with hair.

US F1 OPT Head Covering Requirements

For the photo you need to take off headcovers such as hats, headbands, caps. Religious headcovers are an exception. You can have them in your photo if you provide a certificate from your religious community. The rule, however, is that the religious headgear must not cover the face.

US F1 OPT Shadows Requirements

It is very important that there are no shadows on your passport/visa photo. Make sure that they are not on your face, shoulders or in the photo background.

US F1 OPT Eyeglasses Requirements

Eyeglasses on most passport/visa photos are not allowed.

US F1 OPT Background Requirements

The photo must be in color and the background should be white/off-white.

What to wear on US F1 OPT?

The color of the clothes and the background color should not be the same. The Clothes are better with sleeves, you can wear the short-sleeved shirt in summer. Don’t wear clothes with a low neckline. Try to put on clothes with a normal pattern. If you want your passport to be perfect, you can wear a formal dress.
