A photograph of a certain format, which is further attached to other official documents, can be obtained in the photobox. It is a special camera that works on the principle of self-service.
In all the photoboxes of the capital of Estonia - Tallinn (the only exceptions are two districts: Kolde and Keila) you can easily and quickly take pictures in the photobox. This is allowed even if you are not going to file a petition by contacting a service bureau. The self-service point also has the opportunity to leave a sample of its painting and fingerprints.
Photo taken in photoboxing has a digital format. This format is allowed to be submitted on documents by regular mail and e-mail for 60 days from the moment the picture was taken. The only exception is the execution of a permit for weapons.
When you send documents for application by regular mail or e-mail, attaching photos from the photo box to the documents, be sure to mention the fact that the picture was taken at a self-service point. If you wear optical glasses, you must take them off before photographing to avoid light flare and shadowing of your face.
What are the requirements for a photo for a document for a child?
When you are planning paperwork for a child, it is recommended that you contact a professional photographer to get a high-quality digital picture. Naturally, in the photo box, the photo of the baby in most cases will be blurry, unsuccessful, fuzzy, because the child is a fidget, and he will not look clearly at the camera for a long time.
If you still decide to photograph the child in photoboxing, ask the service staff to help you. If you decide to take a picture of the child at home, make sure that the result meets the requirements for pictures on documents.
What are the requirements for people with disabilities traveling in a wheelchair?

Black-and-white, fuzzy images scanned or processed in photo editors are categorically not suitable for documents.
