I am in the process of applying for a TIE card and would like to know the size of the photographs that have to be supplied. Has anyone managed to obtain their TIE card and could advise please. 

The web sites in Spanish say that "a passport photo is required" .... in the UK, this is one that measures 45 x 35mm.

The web sites in English, say that the size is 32 x 26, which is very small. 

Thanks in advance.

if you go to a good photo shop they will know the size needed if you tell them it's for the TIE.  it is the same size as a driving licence i believe.

I think it must have changed now. 

We got our TIE and driving licences last year and the photo for the driving licence had to be smaller. 

The photographer by the bridge in Albox speaks English and knows the correct sizes. He did the photos for us without an appointment and wasn't expensive.

Definitely hasn’t changed.  32 x 26 IS the smaller size - passport size is a lot bigger.

Thanks for all the replies. Had photos done this morning and the photographer said I should take passport sized photos and the place where we get the cards, would either cut them down to the required size, showing just the head,  or scan them to make them the smaller size. Fingers crossed, we will see.
