These are the standards for passport photos according to the UK Identity and Passport Service.

The photographs must:

  • be in colour, not black and white;
  • be identical;
  • be taken within the last month;
  • be 45 millimetres (mm) high x 35 millimetres (mm) wide (do not trim your photographs to meet this condition);
  • be in clear and sharp focus, with a clear difference between your face and the background;
  • be taken against a plain cream or plain light grey background;
  • not have red-eye; be of you facing forward, looking straight at the camera; not be torn, creased, or marked; be printed on plain white photographic;
  • be free from shadows; be taken with your eyes open and clearly visible (no sunglasses or tinted glasses and no hair across your eyes);
  • be free from reflection or glare on your glasses, and the frames must not cover your eyes (where possible, we recommend that you remove your glasses);
  • show you with a neutral expression and your mouth closed (no grinning, frowning or raised eyebrows);
  • be of you on your own (no toys, baby’s dummy or other people on the photo);
  • 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 it for religious beliefs or medical reasons;
  • be taken with nothing covering your face. Please make sure nothing covers the outline of your eyes, nose or mouth.
  • be a close-up of your head and shoulders so that your head, from the bottom of your chin to your crown is between 29mm and 34mm high; and clear of writing on the front and back.
