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

While the list of Burundi passport photo requirements above is complete, we believe that it would be useful to better explain some of them. After all, getting a rejection due to improper passport photos is quite common. We would like for you to avoid that by giving you the necessary information.

  • The setting in which you choose to take your passport photo is more important than you think. You have to select a light-colored background. We recommend that you go with a white one because it never fails. Make sure that there are no colors, patterns, or shadows on it.
  • Place the camera right in front of you at eye level. You have to keep your head straight. Do not tilt it or rotate it, and you cannot take a portrait-style photo. Both sides of your face must be equally visible.
  • When you take a passport photo or a visa photo, you cannot smile, frown, squint, or raise your brow. Any facial expression that can alter your features is not allowed. For an ideal result, keep your face relaxed when taking the picture.
  • The eyes should be pointed directly at your camera. They are not to be obstructed by anything. If you usually wear glasses, you can keep them on when you take the picture, but only if the frames do not cover your eyes in any way and there is no glare in the photo. As you can imagine, sunglasses and tinted glasses are not permitted.
  • Please mind the lighting in the room as well. It should not be too bright or too dark. You should also make sure that it does not cast shadows on your face since that can alter some of your facial features.
  • Headwear is allowed but only under one condition, and that regards religious beliefs. If your religion does not allow you to have your head uncovered, you can keep the headwear for the passport photo. However, make sure that whatever you wear on your head does not cast a shadow on your face. Also, your face must be entirely visible from the top of your forehead to the bottom of your chin and from ear to ear.
  • Beards are also accepted in your passport photo or visa photo, but only if it represents your everyday look. If you wish to make any changes to it, make them before taking your passport photo.

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

Children of all ages are required to have their own travel documents, passport and visas alike. There are no significant differences between an adult’s and a child’s passport photo, although some particularities apply. For example, it is accepted that children's heads are smaller in the passport photo. The tips you see below should give you some insight on how to take the passport photo of a child.

  • The light-colored background applies to children as well. So, if you want to take the photo while the child is on a car seat or in a horizontal position, do not forget to place a white or light-colored sheet behind the child.
  • If your baby has a beanie or a hat, please remove it before taking the picture. The same goes for pacifiers.
  • If you decide to hold the baby while someone else takes the photo, please do not forget that only the child can appear in the picture.
