South Sudan Passport Photos and Visa Photo Requirements – Rules, Guidelines, and Specifications

Knowing the South Sudan passport photo requirements we listed above is not enough. You must also be aware of the rules and guidelines that govern the way you take that picture. Below, you will find everything you need to know about the process of taking your own passport photo or visa photo.

  • The background of your passport photo or visa photo must be white. Position yourself in front of a white wall when you take your picture. If that is not possible, you could take a white sheet and hang it on a wall. Three things cannot appear in the background: colors, patterns, and shadows.
  • You have to ensure that the lighting is appropriate as well. It cannot be too dim or too intense. Also, a frontal source of light works the best because you do not end up with shadows on your face that way.
  • In your passport photo or visa photo, your head must be straight and your face forward. Do not rotate your head in any way because both sides of your face must be equally visible. If you submit a portrait-style photo, it will definitely be rejected.
  • The only facial expression acceptable in a passport photo or visa photo is neutral. Therefore, do not smile, frown, raise your brows, or squint. Keep your face relaxed.
  • Do not allow your eyes to be obstructed by anything. Not your glasses, not your hair. Wearing clear-frame glasses is okay only if there is no glare in the picture, and your eyes are not obscured. Sunglasses and tinted lenses have no business appearing in a passport photo or visa photo.
  • Headwear is permitted for religious and cultural purposes. However, please check so that your face is visible from top to bottom and from ear to ear. Also, the headwear cannot cast shadows on your face. No other exceptions are made.
  • If you usually have a beard, you can keep it for your passport photo or visa photo. However, if you plan on making any changes to it, you should do that before you take your picture. After all, the photo must depict your current appearance.

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

Did you know that if you want to travel with your children, you must get passports and visas for them too? In that case, you have to get photos for them as well, and iVisa Photos can be of help in that regard. Below, you are going to find a few helpful tips.

  • A child’s eyes must be visible as well. Make sure to take the picture when your child is awake.
  • For more comfort, you can put the baby in a car seat to take his/her picture. But if you do that, put a white layer on the chair’s backrest so that the background of the photo comes out white.
  • Some parents want to lay down their babies to take the picture from above. Doing that is okay as long as you put a white sheet underneath the child. The background has to be white.
  • You cannot be visible in your child’s passport photo or visa photo. Even if you want to hold your baby during the photo session, your hands must be completely concealed.
  • Please remove your baby’s pacifier and headwear before taking the picture.
