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

Although we listed the requirements a passport photo has to follow above, we think it is necessary to elaborate a little further for better comprehension. After all, many passport applications are rejected because the photo does not comply with the rules, which is why it is important for you to know as much about it as possible.

  • The background you use when you take your passport photo must not have colors, patterns, or shadows in it. It has to be just white. Otherwise, the passport photo is rejected.
  • Make sure to keep your head straight and face the camera. You cannot tilt your head or rotate it in any way. Portrait-style passport photos are not accepted under any circumstances. Both halves of your face should be equally captured.
  • Make sure that the source of light comes from the front of your face. Otherwise, you may risk having shadows or reflections on your face, in which case the passport photo will be rejected. It should not be too bright nor too dim. Neutral lights are the most appropriate.
  • Facial expressions of any kind are forbidden. You cannot smile, frown, squint, or raise your eyebrows. When snapping the photo, make sure that your face is fully relaxed. This ensures a neutral facial expression.
  • Your eyes should look straight into the camera. Do not squint. If necessary, you can wear your glasses. However, if the frames of your glasses are too big and cover some of your facial features, you should take them off. Sunglasses are not acceptable, and neither are glasses with tinted lenses. Also, make sure that there is no glare caused by the glasses in your passport photo.
  • Headwear will invalidate your passport photo unless you are bound by religious beliefs to keep your head covered. However, if that is the case, remember that your face must be clearly visible from the top of your forehead to the bottom of your chin. That is the only acceptable compromise.
  • If you usually have a beard, you can have it in your passport photo as well. However, any changes you may want to make regarding your beard should be made before you take your passport photo.

Rules and Requirements for Baby, Infant, and Newborn Passport and Visa Photos

As you may already know, children of all ages are required to have their own individual passport and visa. Consequently, you will need a passport photo for them as well. There are no significant differences between the pictures of children and those of adults, but there are a few particularities. For one, it is acceptable for the face to measure less than 25 mm. After all, children have smaller heads. Here are some useful tips when you want to take a passport photo for your children:

  • If you use the car seat for your children to take their pictures, make sure to cover the backrest with a white sheet. Background rules apply to kids as well.
  • For newborns, you can put them on their backs and take the photo from above. Just remember to put a white sheet underneath them before you snap the photo.
  • Make sure that the children’s eyes are open during the photoshoot.
  • If the children are too young and you need to hold them, make sure that the passport photo does not capture your hands. Only the children can be in the picture.
