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

Do you feel like you need more information regarding the passport photo specifications above? No problem. Since an inadequate passport photo is one of the most common causes of rejection, we want to provide you with as much information as possible. The info below should clear a few things up.

  • The environment you choose to take the picture in is essential. The background of the photo must be white, which is why you will need a white wall. If you do not have one, you can take a white sheet and hang it on the wall. Plenty of people do this. Please note that the background cannot have colors, patterns, or shadows.
  • For the best possible exposure of your facial features, please place the camera at eye level. Both sides of your face must be equally visible, which is why you should not tilt or rotate your head when you snap the photo. Portrait-style pictures will be rejected.
  • You cannot smile when you take your passport photo or visa photo. Nor can you frown, squint, or raise your brows. Only a neutral facial expression is acceptable in the picture. To achieve that, relax your facial muscles when taking the photo.
  • Your eyes should look straight into the camera. It is essential that they are perfectly visible. Do not let your hair cover them. If the frames of your glasses are large, take them off. If you must wear your eyeglasses, make sure that they are positioned correctly so that they do not cover your eyes and that they do not create glare. Sunglasses, as well as tinted lenses, are not acceptable in a passport photo or visa photo.
  • The light plays an important role in a passport photo or visa photo. You have to find the perfect source, preferably directly in front of you. That way, there will be no shadows on your face.
  • When you take your passport photo or visa photo, you are not allowed to wear anything on your head. However, if you are bound by your religion to cover your head at all times, you can keep your headwear for the passport photo. Even so, make sure that it does not create shadows on your face. At the same time, keep in mind that your face must be visible from the top of your forehead to the bottom of your chin and from ear to ear.
  • If your everyday likeness includes a beard, you are allowed to keep it for your passport photo.

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

Did you know that children of all ages are required to travel with their own travel documents? So, if you want to visit a foreign country with your kids, you need to get passports and visas for all of them. With iVisa Photos, you can take their photos at home as well. The tips below should be of help with that process.

  • There are no significant differences between the passport photos for adults and the ones for children. However, it makes sense for a child’s head to occupy less space in a picture.
  • Make sure that your child is awake when you take the picture.
  • If your baby has a hat or a pacifier, remove them before snapping the picture.
  • Only the child can appear in the photo.
  • Photographing your kid in a car seat means that you have to cover the backrest with a white sheet. All background rules apply.
  • Some parents prefer to lay their babies on their backs to take the picture from above. If you want to do that as well, remember to place the child on a white sheet or white blanket.
