Ivory Coast Passport Photos and Visa Photo Requirements – Rules, Guidelines, and Specifications

  • As stated above, the background of your passport photo must be white. It is also worth mentioning that it cannot have shadows or patterns either. The best thing you could do is to find a white wall in your house and use it as a background. If you do not have a white wall, a white sheet hung on a wall will work just as fine.
  • For the best possible angle, you should position the camera at eye level. You must keep your head straight so that all your facial features are discernible. Both sides of your face must be equally visible, which is why portrait-style photos are not permitted.
  • When you take your passport photo or visa photo, you are not allowed to smile or make any facial expressions other than neutral. You should relax your face when you take the picture for the best possible result.
  • It is imperative to have your eyes perfectly visible in your passport photo or visa photo. Look straight into the camera, and make sure that your eyes are not obstructed by anything, such as your hair or the frames from your glasses. If you keep your glasses on, check the photo for glare. You are not permitted to wear sunglasses or tinted eyeglasses in your passport photo.
  • The source of light you use for your passport photo should be positioned in front of you so that there are no shadows on your face. Make sure that the intensity is not too low or too high.
  • You cannot wear anything on your head when you take the picture for your passport. An exception is made for people who are obligated by their religious beliefs to keep their heads covered at all times. Even then, your face has to be visible from the top of your forehead to the bottom of your chin. Moreover, the headwear must not cast shadows on your face.
  • As long as your beard represents your everyday look, you are not obligated to shave it off for your passport photo or visa photo. If, however, you plan on making any changes to your facial hair, please do so before you take your picture. The passport photo must depict your current appearance.

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

Since children of all ages require to have their own passport and visas, you must apply for them too if you plan on traveling with your kids. Needless to say, you have to take their picture also, and iVisa Photos can help you with that as well. The tips below should be useful. Remember that there are no significant differences between an adult’s passport photo and a child’s passport photo other than the fact that a child’s head can take less space in the picture. Children have, after all, smaller heads.

  • Your child must be awake when you take their picture.
  • If you plan on photographing your child in a car seat, like many parents do, remember to place a white layer on the backrest of the chair to achieve a white background.
  • When taking the picture of your child from above, while he/she lays on his/her back, remember to place a white sheet underneath to achieve a white background.
  • If your baby has a pacifier, headwear, a toy, etc., you need to remove them from the shot.
  • If you want to hold your baby while someone else is taking the photo, you need to make sure that no part of you appears in the shot. Not even your hands. You can wear a white shirt for the background.
