Ireland photo size and requirements for passports and visas
2 min read
Updated on May 14, 2024

Embarking on an international journey from Ireland? Securing an Irish passport is your first step toward global exploration. This process is straightforward, requiring you to gather a few documents, complete an application, and submit everything to the relevant authority.

If you want to travel to Ireland, you may need an Ireland Tourist Visa. This photo guide can assist with fulfilling the photo requirement for the visa application as well.

Let's get started!

Photo requirements for Ireland passport and visa applications

To ensure your application proceeds without a hitch, your passport photo must meet the following specifications:

  • Size: The photo must be 45 mm in height and 35 mm in width.
  • Color: Please provide color photos only.
  • Head position: Face the camera directly with your head centered.
  • Recency: The photo should be taken within the last 6 months to ensure it accurately represents your current appearance.
  • Background: Plain white background without any patterns or shadows.
  • Facial expression: Maintain a neutral expression without smiling.
  • Visibility: Ensure your eyes are clearly visible and not obscured by hair or eyewear. Glasses are permitted as long as they are not tinted and there's no glare on the lenses.
  • Headgear: Generally not allowed except for religious purposes, and even then ensuring your face is fully visible from chin to forehead.
  • Quality: The photo must be clear and sharp, with a minimum resolution of 600 dpi.
  • Attire: Avoid white clothing to ensure contrast with the background.
  • Beard: Beards are permitted if they represent your usual everyday appearance.
  • Quantity: You will usually need to submit 4 photos with your application for a passport.

Ireland photo requirements for children and babies

When traveling with minors, remember, they too need their own travel documents. Here's how to ensure their photos meet the requirements:

  • Proportions: While similar to adult requirements, a child's head may occupy less space in the photo.
  • Positioning: Laying the child on their back on a white background or using a car seat covered with a white sheet can work well for taking the photo.
  • Accessories: Remove pacifiers, toys, and headwear to ensure a clear photo.
  • Consciousness: Ensure the child is awake during the photo session and eyes are open.
  • Holder's visibility: If holding an infant, ensure you are not visible in the photo. Using a white backdrop or clothing can help achieve this.
