Iran passport photo and visa photo requirements – Rules, guidelines, and specifications

If you require further details regarding any of the passport photo requirements for Iran mentioned above, we're eager to assist. Our goal is to help you prevent your passport application from being declined due to an unsuitable photo, which is, surprisingly, one of the most frequent reasons for rejection.

  • The background must be plain white. Not only can it not contain any colors, but it must not have shadows or patterns either. You can use a white wall in your house as a setting, and if you don't have one, we recommend taking a white sheet and hanging it behind you.
  • For the best possible capture, you should place the camera at eye level. Keep in mind that both sides of your face must be equally visible, which is why you cannot tilt or rotate your head. If you submit a portrait-style photo, it will be rejected.
  • In your passport or visa photo, you must appear with a neutral facial expression. You cannot smile, squint, or make any other expressions. Just relax your face when taking the picture. That ensures the best result.
  • When you want to take a picture, look straight into the camera. Your eyes must be visible. Nothing can obscure them. So, if you wear glasses and the frames are too large, take them off. Move your hair away from your face. If you can keep your glasses on, make sure that there is no glare in the picture. Sunglasses and prescription glasses with tinted lenses cannot be worn for your passport or visa photo.
  • When taking your picture, choose a source of light that is in front of you. That way, there will be no shadows on your face. Also, make sure that the lighting is of the right intensity.
  • Headwear is allowed in a passport or visa photo, only for religious purposes. What you need to be careful about is for your face to be perfectly visible from the bottom of your chin to the top of your forehead. Also, your headwear cannot cast shadows on your face. This is cause for rejection.
  • You are allowed to keep your beard for your passport or visa photo as long as it represents your everyday appearance.

Rules and requirements for babies, infants, and newborns

Since children need to have a passport of their own, you have to take their photos as well. Just make sure to read the tips we prepared for you:

  • There are no major differences between an adult’s passport photo and a child’s passport photo. The only important aspect is that it is acceptable for a child’s head to take less space in the picture than the head of an adult.
  • Children must have their eyes open in the picture as well. Make sure that they are awake when you take the photo.
  • Do you want to photograph your child in a car seat? Just make sure to cover the backrest of the chair with a white layer. You have to ensure there is a white background.
  • If you want to take a picture of your baby in the lying down position, you have to remember to put a white sheet underneath the baby to achieve a white background.
  • You have to remove the baby’s pacifier, headwear, toy, etc., before taking the picture.
  • Only the child can appear in the photograph. If you want to hold your baby, remember that even your hands must not be visible.
