Haiti Passport Photo Size Requirements Guide
Haiti Passport Photos and Visa Photo Requirements – Rules, Guidelines, and Specifications
The list of Haiti passport photo requirements above is complete. Nevertheless, we feel that more clarification is necessary regarding a few of them. A lot of people have their passport application rejected because they fail to submit a proper passport photo, and we do not want you to go through that.
- Your passport photo must be taken against a white background. There cannot be any colors, patterns or shadows in your picture. A plain white wall should suffice, but if you do not have one in your house, you can take a white sheet and hang it somewhere. The result is pretty much the same.
- The best placement of the camera is at eye level. That ensures the best exposure of your facial features. Keep your head straight. Do not rotate or tilt it. Both sides of your face must be equally visible, so if you submit a portrait-style photo, it will be rejected.
- The only facial expression accepted in a passport photo or visa photo is neutral. You cannot smile, frown, nor squint. For the best possible result, relax your face when you take your picture.
- When taking the photograph, keep your eyes straight into the camera. Make sure that nothing obstructs them, such as the frames of your glasses or your hair. If you need to keep your prescription glasses on, you have to make sure that there is no flash reflection in the picture. At the same time, do not wear sunglasses or eyeglasses that have tinted lenses when you snap your passport photo. It will be rejected.
- The source of light should have the right intensity. Since light can play tricks on your facial features, make sure that it is not too bright or too dim. It is preferable to have a source right in front of you so that there are no shadows on your face.
- Headwear is usually prohibited in a passport photo or visa photo. However, an exception is made for people who are compelled by their religious beliefs to keep their heads covered at all times. Nevertheless, if you have to keep your headwear, make sure that it does not create shadows on your face. Also, your face must be visible from the top of your forehead to the bottom of your chin. This is as far as the exception goes.
- Is your beard reflecting your everyday likeness? If so, you do not have to shave it off for your passport photo or visa photo.

- Keep in mind that a child’s passport photo is not that different from an adult’s passport photo. However, it acceptable that a child’s head can occupy less space in a picture.

- Children should be awake during the photo shoot.
- If you want to hold the baby when their picture is taken, remember that no part of you can be visible in the photo. Not even your hands.
