Passport Photo Rules & Regulations

Getting your passport photo can be a stressful and confusing responsibility, especially if you already have to make a rush order. Make sure you understand the passport photo rules prior to taking your passport photo.

For example, UK passport photo standards require the following:

–  recent photo taken within one year
–  white background
–  photo quality needs to be high-level
–  color photo
–  skin tone must be an accurate match
–  look straight into the camera
–  neutral expression, no smile
–  body facing forward
–  dress how you normally dress, so no uniforms
–  religious attire you wear every day is acceptable

Common Reasons For Passport Photo Rejection

There are a few reasons your photo will be rejected. While some are common sense, most other reasons for passport photo rejections are technical. Which is why we recommend taking this task to a professional who does it every day and is well aware of the acceptable standards. Keep these points in mind for your own passport photo:

–  blurry images are not accepted
–  any shadows on the face not acceptable
–  photo MUST BE taken with a neutral background
–  DO NOT wear your glasses or sunglasses (even if you wear them all the time)
–  DO NOT wear any uniform or any costume
–  DO NOT wear headphones
–  DO NOT wear a hat or head covering (Religious head coverings accepted)
–  Photos must be the correct size
–  the person must be framed properly within the photo
