  • Faces must be clearly visible and facing forward – NO profile shots
  • We will NOT accept photos with hats, headbands, toques or sunglasses
  • No graduation caps, gowns or costumes can be worn
  • Your photo must have a neutral background (i.e. a white wall is best)
  • Nothing can be touching the face such as hands, trees or graduation certificate
  • NO GLAMOUR OR CANDID SHOTS.  This photo should be similar to your driver’s license, but we do request that you smile

We reserve the right to disallow inappropriate photos. No advertising or messages are allowed in the identification photos. When sending a photo, keep in mind it is for ID purposes and if you can't imagine the photo on your passport, you should choose to send a different one.
