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

Do you find some of the Eritrean passport photo requirements above unclear? Below, you will find more information on some of the specifications we listed below so that you are not confused as to what you are required to do. Besides, an improper passport photo is one of the most common reasons for rejection, and we do not want you to experience that.

  • Before you take your picture, you have to make sure that you have a space where you can take it against a white background. A white wall should do, but if you do not have one, feel free to take a white sheet and hang it on the wall. It cannot have any colors or patterns on it and make sure that there are no shadows either.
  • For the best possible exposure of your facial features, please position the camera at eye level. You are required to make sure that both halves of your face are equally visible, so do not rotate or tilt your head when you take the photo. If you submit a portrait-style passport photo, your application will be rejected.
  • You are not allowed to smile in your passport photo or visa photo. You cannot frown or raise your brows either. The only acceptable facial expression is neutral. To best achieve that, make sure to relax your face when you snap the picture.
  • Your eyes cannot be obstructed by anything and must look straight into the camera. Remove your hair off your face, and if you wear glasses with large frames, you have to remove them too. If you must wear glasses (small frames), make sure that there is no glare in the picture. On the other hand, you cannot wear sunglasses or eyeglasses with tinted lenses for your passport photo or visa photo.
  • Please make sure that the source of light you use is in front of you. That way, you will not have shadows on your face. Also, the intensity of the light cannot be too high or too low.
  • Only people who are bound by their religious beliefs to keep their heads covered at all times can take their pictures with their heads covered. Even so, the veil cannot cast shadows on your face, and your face has to be perfectly visible from the bottom of your chin to the top of your forehead and from ear to ear.
  • Does your beard represent your everyday look? If the answer is yes, then you can keep it for your passport photo or visa photo. If not, please shave it off before taking the picture.

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

In case you want to travel abroad with your kids, you have to get passports and visas for them as well. Needless to say, you must take their picture as well. The tips below should be of assistance.

  • There are no major differences between an adult’s passport photo and a child’s passport photo other than the fact that a child’s head can occupy less space in the picture. After all, kids do have smaller heads.
  • When photographing your child from above in the lying down position, do not forget to put the baby on a white sheet or a white blanket.
  • When taking the passport photo of your child in a car seat, place a white sheet on the backrest of the chair. All background rules apply to children as well.
  • Hats and pacifiers must be removed for the passport photo or visa photo.
  • Children must be awake when taking their picture.
  • Only a child can appear in the photo. Not even your hands can be visible if you decide to hold the baby.
