The facial image is obtained by digitizing a photo. This photo meets the national requirements. These are laid down in the Photo Matrix Model 2007. Only if the photo meets these passport photo requirements, will it be accepted when applying for a travel document.

Passport photos for a foreign document, passport or visa may differ from the Dutch passport photo requirements. For example, a distinction can be made between a business visa and a tourist visa. It is important how often you want to travel to the country in question, whether you still have to take domestic flights and what the duration of your stay is. To apply for a passport, a different size passport photo can be requested. Or do you participate in a lottery, do you want to study abroad or are you going to emigrate? It is also possible that you need a Green Card, for example. Some agencies request a printed photo, others a digital one, and others request both.
