The DV-2016 Green Card DV-Lottery Photo Requirements
All DV-2016 Green Card Lottery applicants must provide a recent photograph of themselves and a recent photograph of all their co-applicants (spouse and children). You will need an electronic file containing your digital photo which you must upload on-line in the members area.
Photographs that do not comply with all the specifications below, including but not limited to recency of the photos, composition of the photos, and unacceptable backgrounds are grounds for disqualification of the entire Green Card DV-Lottery Application. Any manipulation of photographs that alters the facial characteristics is also grounds for disqualification of the entire Green Card DV-Lottery application as well. Failure to upload the correct photograph of each individual, may result in disqualification of the principal applicant and refusal of all visas associated with the case at the time of the green card interview. Photos must be in at least 24-bit color depth, i.e. black and white photos will not be accepted. The person being photographed shall be in front of a neutral, light-colored background. Dark or patterned backgrounds are not acceptable and photographs in which the person being photographed is wearing sunglasses or other items that detract from the face will not be accepted. Photos of applicants wearing head coverings or hats are only acceptable if the head covering is worn for religious beliefs; even then, the head covering may not obscure any portion of the face of the applicant. Photographs of applicants with tribal or other headgear not specifically religious in nature will not be accepted; photographs of military, airline, or other personnel wearing hats will not be accepted either.
