Other Recommendation

Important information and passport photo tips:

  • The passport office has improved security with their new digitizing equipment so it is very important that your photo will meet their requirements.
  • We recommend that you wear dark colour clothing since white colour is not acceptable.
  • We generally will ask you to remove glasses. As they will produce a reflection in the frame as well as obstructing your eye and would result in a rejected photo.
  • To eliminate shine on the skin we generally ask to remove excess oil build up by a tissue paper.

Please note:
Child photos must follow the same rules as for an Adult Passport

  • Photos must show the child’s head and shoulders only. Parent’s hands should not appear in the photo.
  • Dress your baby in something colourful.
  • Always have a favorite toy to attain their attention at all time.
  • Passport Canada recognizes the difficulty in obtaining a neutral expression of a newborn and will allow for some tolerance in this regard
