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

We already listed the general Kosovo passport photo requirements above. However, did you know that an inadequate passport photo is among the most common causes of passport application rejection? To avoid that, we provided below more information on some of the specifications.

  • Choosing the proper background for your passport photo should not difficult. It needs to be entirely white. Patterns and shadows have no place being in a passport photo, either. You could use a white wall, but in case you do not have one, you can take a white sheet and hang it somewhere. The end result is pretty much the same.
  • You need to be very careful with the angle, which is why you must position the camera at eye level. Keep your head straight when you take the photo. You should know that portrait-style photos are always rejected because both sides of your face must be visible equally.
  • The only acceptable facial expression in a passport photo or visa photo is neutral. Therefore, you cannot smile, squint, raise your brows, or frown. To achieve the best possible result, we recommend that you relax your face when you take your picture.
  • You are required to look straight into the camera when you take the passport photo or visa photo. It is essential for your eyes to be visible, not covered by your hair or glasses. If the frames are oversized, you must take your eyeglasses off. If you keep them on because they are discreet, check the picture for flash reflection before you submit it. Moreover, remember that sunglasses and eyeglasses with tinted lenses are forbidden in a passport photo or visa photo.
  • The lighting in the room must not have an intensity that is too low or too high. Also, you should make sure that the light does not create shadows on your face. A frontal source would be best.
  • Headwear is usually not acceptable in a passport photo or visa photo. Nevertheless, an exception is made for people who are held by their religious beliefs to keep their heads covered at all times. If you are among them, you can keep your headwear, but you have to make sure that it does not create shadows on your face and that your face is seeable from the top of your forehead to the bottom of your chin. No other compromise is made.
  • You do not have to shave your beard if it represents your everyday look. Any changes you may want to make must be made before you take your passport photo.

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

Children are not exempt from having their own passport and visas, which is why you need to take their pictures as well. You can use iVisa Photos in this case as well. We even prepared a few tips for you.

  • Children’s eyes must be visible as well, so make sure that they are awake when you take their photos.
  • Like many other parents do, you may want to put the baby in a car seat when you want to take the photo. Just remember to cover the backrest of the chair with a white sheet so that the background is white.
  • For the same reason, you have to place the baby on a white layer if you want to take the photo from above. The position is more comfortable for some babies.
  • You are expected to remove the baby’s pacifier, headwear, or any other object from the shot.
  • Keep in mind that if you want to hold the baby, you cannot appear in the picture at all. Not even your hands.
