AttireWearing attire which matches the background can result in the rejection of the photo.
BeardThere isn’t any restriction regarding having beard in the photo as long as the image reflects your daily look. Keep it if you usually have one. Obviously, don’t grow it for the picture only.
LightingPerfect lighting helps in taking perfect picture. This fact works same for the passport and visa photos as well. An evenly distributed light on your face creating no shadows will do fine. We just need a photo that isn’t too bright or too dark.
