  • Show you on your own (babies should not have toys or a dummy, and there shouldn't’t be other people in the photo)
  • Be in color, not black and white
  • Be identical
  • Be taken within the last month
  • Be 45 millimeters high x 35 millimeters wide

  • Be printed on plain white photographic paper
  • Be free from shadows
  • Be taken with your eyes open and clearly visible
  • No sunglasses or tinted glasses
  • No hair across your eyes
  • Be free from reflection or glare on your glasses
  • The frames must not cover your eye
  • The Identity and Passport Service (IPS) recommends that, if possible, you remove your glasses
  • Be professionally printed (photographs printed at home are not likely to be of an acceptable quality)
  • Show your full head, without any head covering, unless you wear one for religious beliefs or medical reasons
  • Be taken with nothing covering your face – you should make sure nothing covers the outline of your eyes, nose or mouth
  • Be a close-up of your head and shoulders with a recommended head height (the distance between the bottom of your chin and the crown of your head) between 29 and 34 mm
  • Not have any writing on the front or back - except when one of the photos needs to be certified


  • Infants less than 12 months must be just a good likeness (eyes can be closed)
  • Baby 1 -6 years old - same as adult except:
    1. No need to look at camera
    2. Mouth can be open
    3. Person with disability - case by case

    The person who countersigns your application form at section 10 (your ‘counter signatory’) should also certify one (not both) of the photographs. They do this by writing on the back: "I certify that this is a true likeness of [Mr, Mrs, Miss, Ms or other title followed by your full name]" They must then sign and date the statement. It is not enough just to sign and date the photograph.

The counter signatory must:

  • Sign the application form at section 10 to confirm that they have known the adult who signed section 9 for at least two years.
  • Certify one of the photographs as described above, stating the child’s full name.
  • If you are renewing a passport you only need to get your form countersigned and a photograph certified if you look very different from the photograph in your most recent passport.
