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

In case you find the Chad passport photo requirements incomplete, we provide more information below. It is important to get the passport photo or visa photo right from the first try because an improper picture is often the cause of rejection. To avoid that, please take a look at the additional information below.

  • Make sure to choose the right background. It has to be white, and a white wall in your house is ideal. However, if you do not have one, get a white sheet and hang it on the wall. It cannot have colors or patterns. It should also not have any shadows on it.
  • The camera must be positioned at eye level. That ensures maximum exposure of your face. Both sides of your face must be equally visible. Do not tilt or rotate your head in any direction. Portrait-style passport photos or visa photos will be rejected.
  • When you take your passport photo or visa photo, keep your face relaxed. That ensures a neutral facial expression. You should not smile, squint, frown, or anything other than a neutral expression.
  • Keep your eyes into the camera when taking the picture. They cannot be obstructed by anything. If you wear glasses and the frames cover a good portion of your eyes, take them off for the photo. You cannot wear glasses with tinted lenses nor sunglasses. Also, make sure that the picture you take does not include glare from the lenses if you do decide to keep the glasses on.
  • The light in the room you decide to take the passport photo in must not be too bright or too dark. Make sure that the source is right in front of you so that there are no shadows on your face whatsoever.
  • Headwear is usually prohibited in a passport photo or a visa photo. Nevertheless, if your religious beliefs compel you to keep your head covered, make sure that your face is perfectly visible from the top of your forehead to the bottom of your chin. That is the only acceptable concession.
  • You can keep your beard for a passport photo if it represents your everyday look. But if you plan on making some changes in that regard, make them before you have your picture taken.

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

Children of all ages need their own individual passport and visa. A child’s passport photo is not that different from an adult’s passport photo. As you can imagine, children have smaller heads, and it is perfectly acceptable for that to reflect in the picture. The tips below are helpful in the process of taking a child’s passport photo.

  • The child should be awake while you take his/her picture. -Only the child can appear in the photo. If you decide to hold the baby, your hands must not be visible at all.
  • Taking a picture of a child in a car seat means that you have to place a white sheet on the backrest of the chair.
  • If you want to take the passport photo from above while the child is on his/her back, you need to put a white sheet underneath. All rules about the background apply to children’s passport photos as well.
  • If the baby wears a beanie/hat or has a pacifier, please remove them for the passport photo.
