Taiwan passport and visa photo requirements, rules, guidelines, and specifications

There are many details encompassing an acceptable passport or visa photo. Though tedious, these regulations create a uniform identification process that allows the government to identify each citizen easily. Along with the above items, the following is a much more detailed list of requirements:

  • Sizing is mandatory. There is no leniency to the exact measurements. Your head should be between 32mm and 36mm. No more, no less. It will be around 70% of the entire photo as a whole.
  • The picture needs to reflect your current look. Therefore, photos submitted which are older than 6 months will be rejected.
  • The photo should be printed on high-quality, glossy paper and in high resolution. Usually more than 500Kb.
  • Glasses are allowed during the photo, however, if they are thick-framed, tinted lenses or attract glare, they should be removed. Your eyes need to be fully visible.
  • Headwear for religious or medical purposes is permitted so long as the face is in full view. Hats, large jewelry, or any other headwear is not allowed.
  • Shadows, flash reflection, overexposure, or underexposure is not permitted. Be sure there are no dark spots on your face or your hair from badly angled lighting equipment.
  • No specifications on beards are given, but it’s a good rule of thumb that if you normally wear a beard, it’s acceptable.
  • Keep your face relaxed and neutral. Smiling is not permitted as it distorts facial features.
  • Avoid wearing white colored shirts. Your shoulders and face must be in stark contrast to the background.
  • Red eye is not allowed. Neither are touch-ups afterward. If red eye occurs, the photo needs to be retaken.
  • Be sure your eyes are looking directly at the camera and your body is squared. The photo should show the top of your shoulders.

Rules and requirements for babies, infants, and newborns

If you are traveling with children, you must apply for a passport or visa for each child. This means a photo of each child is needed. Group or family photos are not permitted. Though photographing young kids can be tricky, the above technicalities are still applicable. Here are a few guidelines and advice for the perfect child passport photo:

  • Lighting should reflect the true colors and skin tones of the children.
  • No objects such as pacifiers, bottles, toys, or parent hands are allowed to be seen.
  • If your infant is less than 12 months old, you can photograph them lying down or sitting in a chair. If you do this, place a white cloth behind them to cover any object or background that is not white in color.
  • Eyes need to be open and mouths closed. The infant or child should be facing directly toward the camera.
  • The top of the child’s shoulders should be in view. The rule of 70% still applies.
