Passport photo guidelines

The government has a set of guidelines that need to be followed for passport photo to be officially valid. Make sure your passport photos meet the government's guidelines. You can also read our summary of these in the FAQ area and other tips down below.

FAQ - Most common questions >>>

  • What are passport photo requirements?
    What are passport photo requirements?

    Passport photos must be 35◊45 mm large - Pixum offers you a template to make sure, the photo size is just as required for the application. It is important that the head appears in the centre on the passport photo. One should see the top of the head and your upper shoulders. Make sure, the top of the head is not too close to the upper edge of the print.

  • Passport photos with a home digital camera?
    Passport photos with a home digital camera?

    Absolutely! Use a tripod or ask someone to take a photo of you. Try not to laugh! Find a spot with the least details on the background, e.g., plain coloured door. Best passport photos are shot by daylight so there aren't any shadows behind you. You might need to adjust the brightness of the picture in the Online-Designer before you order the prints.

  • Where to take passport photo for baby?
    Where to take passport photo for baby?

    At home! Lay the baby onto a light-coloured blanket with no pattern. Stretch the blanket for a plain background. Attach a bright toy to the camera lens to attract some attention and avoid using flash. Make a few shots and choose one where it looks into the camera, mouth closed. It's only the baby that should be seen on the image - no toys or granny's hands.

  • there shouldn't be any shadows or other objects in the background. No fancy patterns!
  • you must be facing forward with a close-up of your full head and the upper shoulders
  • have a neutral facial expression with your mouth closed and eyes clearly open. Wear glasses? Watch out for glare! You might want to switch off the flash on your camera
  • don't wear any hats or other head covering, unless it's for religious or medical reasons

Perfect if you need to get or renew a child passport

The guidelines and rules above are also valid for babies and children. Of course, there are some small exceptions, but the subject needs to be in the photo by themselves, no matter their age. Otherwise, please consider the following:
  • you don't have to force the children under 6 years old to have a neutral face expression
  • babies should be laid onto plain coloured cloth and the photos should then be taken from above. No toys are allowed to be seen on the passport picture
