Photographer: Stand about 2 metres away from the subject.
Capture the subject from the chest and leave space above the head
1. Background and lighting
Your photo must have:
a plain light-coloured background – without texture or pattern
balanced light – no shadows on your face or behind you
no objects behind you
2. Your appearance
the photo is a good likeness taken in the last month
your whole face is visible with your eyes open
you have a plain expression – no smile and mouth closed
there are no reflections or glare (if you have to wear glasses)
you’re not wearing headwear (unless for religious or medical reasons)
3. Photo quality and format
Your photo must:
be in colour, with no effects or filters
not be blurred or have ‘red eye’
be unedited – you can’t ‘correct’ your passport photo
