Togo Passport Photos and Visa Photo Requirements – Rules, Guidelines, and Specifications

The Togo passport photo requirements above come in handy. However, you must also know a few rules and guidelines that will help you take a valid passport photo at home. Here is everything you need to know:

  • The background of most passport photos and visa photos must be white. Togo is no exception. For the best possible results, please take your picture against a white wall. If you do not have access to one, take a white sheet and hang it on the wall. As long as it does not have colors, patterns, and shadows, you are good to go.
  • You also have to make sure that the lighting is appropriate. For starters, the intensity cannot be too low or too high. Also, the light should be in front of you when you take your picture so that you do not end up with shadows on your face.
  • When taking your picture, keep your head straight and your face forward. It is essential that you do not rotate your head in any direction because both sides of your face must be equally seeable. Do not submit a portrait-style photo because it will be rejected.
  • You cannot appear in your passport photo or visa photo with a smile on your face. Or with any other expression, for that matter. The only permitted expression is neutral.
  • Your eyes must be perfectly distinguishable in your passport photo or visa photo. You should remove your glasses before taking the shot. Obviously, sunglasses and eyeglasses that have tinted lenses are not permitted.
  • As a general rule, you cannot appear in your passport photo or visa photo with your head covered. Nevertheless, if your religion compels you to cover your head at all times, you can take the picture with headwear on. But even so, make sure that the headwear does not cast shadows on your face. Also, your face must be seeable from the top of your forehead to the bottom of your chin.
  • You do not have to shave your beard for your passport photo or visa photo if it represents your everyday look.

Rules and Requirements for Babies, Infants, and Newborn Passport and Visa Photos

Did you know that children must travel with their own passport and visa? Therefore, you must obtain passport photos for them too. iVisa Photos can be of help in that department as well. Here are some useful tips:

  • You cannot photograph your child when he/she is asleep. Children’s eyes must be visible, as well.
  • When photographing a child in a car seat, you have to cover the backrest of the chair with a white layer to ensure a white background.
  • If you want to put your baby on his/her back so that you can take the photo from above, you must place a white sheet underneath. Once again, the background has to be white.
  • You cannot appear in the same picture as your baby. Even if you want to hold him/her, you have to conceal any apart of you.
  • Before taking the shot, remember to remove the child’s pacifier and/or headwear.
