Important Guideline for UK Passport Photos
Photos should show a close-up of your full head and shoulders. It must be only of you with no other objects or people.
The image of your head – from crown of your head to your chin – must be sized between 29 millimeters and 34 millimeters.
Your UK passport photo may be rejected unless it shows you:
- facing forward and looking straight at the camera.
- with a neutral expression and your mouth closed.
- without anything covering the face.
- in clear contrast to the background.
- without a head covering (unless it’s worn for religious or medical reasons).
- with eyes open, visible and free from reflection or glare from glasses.
- without any shadows in the picture.
