Passport photo specifications

You don't need to worry about the specifications. Even when you upload your images, we will ensure that they meet the requirements. You only need to follow these rules:
  • Eye glasses should not be worn if the frames are small or the lenses reflect the flash light.
  • Scarves and other head gear should only be worn for religious reasons and should not obscure any of the face.
  • Facial expression must be neutral with the mouth closed.
  • Hair should be above the eyebrows
  • No teeth should be visible.
The rules for children who have not yet reached their 6th birthday are relaxed. The mouth can be open with a non neutral expression.
For individuals with mental, physical or behavioural problems, the rules are equally relaxed. Though, if the condition is not obvious in the photograph, you should include a note indicating the circumstances and this should be signed by the parent, carer or the subject's doctor.
