Having Dutch passport photos taken in Syria

If you are in Syria and need passport photos that meet the requirements for a Dutch passport, you have 2 options. 

1. Take the photo matrix to a photographer 

The photo matrix provides an explanation for photographers about the Dutch requirements for passport photos. Download and print the PDF ‘photo matrix model 2020’ in Dutch, English, French or Spanish. Take this with you to the photographer.

2. Go to a photographer in Lebanon, Jordan or Türkiye who is familiar with Dutch requirements 

We have no information about photographers in Syria who are familiar with the Dutch requirements. However, we do have information about photographers in Lebanon, Jordan and Türkiye. If you are already travelling to the embassy in Lebanon, Jordan or Türkiye to apply for a passport, ID card or visa, you can have your photos taken there.
