9. Covering head

Covering head

Caps, hats or any other kind of headwear should be avoided as they pose reflection in the picture. There are few exceptions for the people who wear religious headwear but even that should be such that clear face from the forehead to the lower tip of the chin is visible.

These are some of the points which one must keep in mind while getting a picture clicked for Schengen Visa.

All the best!!
