General Student ID Photo Rules

While there may be varying specifics depending on where you are studying, below are some helpful guidelines from us that can serve as a reference:

(*) The photo style suitable for a student card typically allows for a wider smile than passport photos, and in most cases, smiling with your teeth is allowed. However, it's always best to check your institution's specific rules; (*) The photo should ideally be recent and reflect your current appearance; (*) It should be a clear and well-focused shot; (*) The photo must show your full face; all facial features, including moles, should be visible; (*) The photo must represent you truthfully, so don't make any software modifications that alter your appearance; (*) It is recommended to have a plain, light background. Most educational institutions require a white background; (*) Choose clothing that contrasts with the background; (*) The photo should contain only your image, removing all people, pets, or other objects; (*) Ensure there is no "red-eye" effect; (*) Maintain a forward-facing position, looking directly at the camera; (*) Your hair should not obscure your features; (*) The photo should be evenly lit, without shadows; (*) Eyes should remain clear. Sunglasses and tinted glasses should be removed, plain glasses can be worn without causing reflections. Avoid glare on the lenses.

Europe: ISIC and ESN Card Photo Requirements

The photo standards for the ESN (Erasmus Student Network) card and the ISIC (International Student Identity Card) are as follows:

ESN card photo requirements:

(*) The ESN card photo must measure 27×37 mm (2.7 × 3.7 cm). (*) The photo should be a recent passport-style image that clearly shows the face and shoulders. (*) A neutral background such as plain white or light gray is recommended. (*) The photo should be clear, in focus, properly lit, and free of visible shadows. (*) The face should not be obstructed by hair or accessories such as hats or sunglasses. (*) No editing or filters should alter the natural appearance.

ISIC card photo requirements:

(*) The required ISIC photo size is 35 mm × 45 mm. (*) The photo should be in color, not black and white. (*) A passport-style photo (i.e., headshot only) is recommended.

These requirements ensure that photos submitted for ESN and ISIC cards meet the necessary identification and official requirements.
