El Salvador Passport Photos and Visa Photo Requirements – Rules, Guidelines, and Specifications

You may not know this, but numerous passport applications are rejected due to an inadequate photo. We want you to avoid that, which is why we decided to expand on some of the passport photo specifications you see above.

  • Choosing the right setting in which to take your passport photo is crucial. The background has to be white. Going with a white wall is more than enough. Just make sure that there are no colors, patterns, or shadows on it. In case you do not have a white wall, hanging a white sheet on a wall would do the trick.
  • The camera should be positioned at eye level so that the photo includes all your facial features. Since both sides of your face must be equally visible in the passport photo, you should not rotate or tilt your head at any angle. As you can probably imagine, that excludes portrait-style photos. They will be rejected.
  • The only acceptable facial expression in a passport photo is neutral. You should not smile or frown. Your picture will be rejected otherwise. To achieve the ideal facial expression, you should relax your face when snapping the photo.
  • Your eyes must look straight into the camera. If you wear glasses, make sure that the frames do not cover your eyes. Your hair should also not hide them. If you do want to wear glasses, please keep in mind that they may create glare. Check the photo before you submit it. Passport photos and visa photos with sunglasses or eyeglasses with tinted lenses will be rejected.
  • The lighting in the environment in which you take your passport photo must not be too bright or too dark. It should also not create shadows on your face. They have the potential to alter your facial features.
  • Headwear is usually prohibited in a passport photo. However, it is entirely understandable if your religious beliefs compel you to keep your head covered at all times. Even so, you must make sure that your veil does not cast shadows on your face, and that your face is visible from the bottom of your chin to the top of your forehead.
  • If you usually have a beard, you can keep it for your passport photo. However, if you plan to shave it, you should do so before taking the picture. The passport photo must represent your everyday likeness.

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

Did you know that your child needs an individual passport and visa? Fortunately, you can take their picture with iVisa Photos as well. Just make sure to read the tips below.

  • Since children have smaller heads, it is acceptable for a child’s head to occupy less surface of the passport photo.
  • You should take your child’s photo when he/she is awake.
  • If you have a bay wearing a hat or pacifier, make sure to remove them before you snap the picture.
  • In case you want to lay the baby down on his/her back and take the picture from above, remember to place a white sheet underneath.
  • Many parents photograph their children in a car seat. If you want to do the same, put a white sheet on the seat’s backrest.
  • Only your child can be visible in the passport photo or visa photo.
