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

If you find some of the Cyprus passport photo requirements above unclear, you will find a more comprehensive description of some of them below. Since an inadequate passport photo is often the cause of rejection, we want to give you as much information as possible. That way, you can avoid wasting your time.

  • The background of a Cyprus passport photo must be white. You can use a white wall as a background, but if you do not have one in your home, a white sheet should fix the issue. Just hang it on the wall and problem solved. Remember that your background cannot include colors, patterns, or shadows. It has to be plain white.
  • For better exposure of all your facial features, you need to place the camera at eye level. Both sides of your face must be equally visible, which is why you should not rotate or tilt your head in any direction. You cannot submit a portrait-style photo because it will be rejected.
  • The best thing you could do to achieve a neutral facial expression in your passport photo or visa photo is to relax the muscles of your face when you take the picture. Do not smile, raise your brows, or frown because the photo will be rejected.
  • Look straight into the camera when you snap the picture. Make sure that your eyes are not covered by your hair or by the frames of your glasses if you wear any. If you do wear glasses, you can keep them on but only if they do not create glare in the photo. You cannot wear glasses with tinted lenses or sunglasses for your passport photo or visa photo.
  • Find an environment where the light is neither too bright nor too dim. We all know the effects of bad lighting on one’s facial features. You should make sure that the source of the light is in front of you so that there are no shadows on your face.
  • Headwear is usually not acceptable in a passport photo or visa photo. However, if you are bound by your religious beliefs to keep your head covered, you may do so for your passport photo or visa photo. But even then, you have to make sure that your headwear does not cast shadows on your face and that your face is perfectly visible from the bottom of your chin to the top of your forehead.
  • If your everyday look includes a beard, you can keep it for your passport photo or visa photo.

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

Children of all ages are not exempt from having their own passport and visa, which is why they need to apply for both as well. You can take their picture at home too, and the tips below should be of assistance.

  • The passport photo for a child is not that different from the passport photo for an adult. However, children’s heads are smaller, which is why they can occupy less surface of the picture.
  • Photographing your child in a car seat means that you have to cover the backrest with a white sheet.
  • Some people photograph their children from above in the lying down position. If you wish to do that as well, place the child on a white blanket or sheet.
  • If the baby has a pacifier, remove it for the passport photo. The same goes for hats and beanies.
  • Take the picture when the child is awake.
