A Passport Photo must be Right Size and Right Format, taken by a commercial photographer with their business information stamped at the back of the photo, Photos can be in colour or black & white but must be clear, sharp and in focus, Taken straight on, with face and shoulders centered and squared to the camera, Taken with a neutral facial expression (eyes open and clearly visible, mouth closed, no smiling), Original photos that are not altered in any way or taken from an existing photo, Taken within the last 6 months, Professionally printed on plain, high quality photographic paper (photos printed at home and photos printed on heavy weight paper are not acceptable).

The requirements for passport photos vary by country. For example, The USA requires passport photos to have a size of 2 x 2 inches (5 x 5 cm). Most countries (including the European Union, the United Kingdom, and Australia) require ‘standard’ 3.5 x 4.5 Photo cm. Passport Photo meets the specifications of the EU, the UK and Australia for biometric passports. Click here for full list Passport Photo specifications of countries around the world.
