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

Knowing the Tonga passport photo requirements above is not enough. You must also know the guidelines you have to follow in order to take your picture the right way. Below, you will find the rules that you must be aware of.

  • When you take your passport photo or visa photo, you have to position yourself in front of a white background. It can be a white wall or a white sheet. As long as there are no colors, patterns, and shadows on the background, you are good to go. Also worth mentioning is that if you use a sheet, it cannot be see-through.
  • The lighting is also very important. Make sure that the source is in front of you when you take the picture. That eliminates the possibility of having shadows on your face. Moreover, make sure that the light is not too bright or too dim.
  • Keep your head straight and your face forward when you take your passport photo or visa photo. You cannot submit a portrait-style photo because both sides of your face must be seen equally. So do not rotate your head in any direction.
  • In your passport photo or visa photo, you cannot appear displaying any other facial expression other than neutral. Therefore, you are not allowed to smile.
  • Your eyes have to be perfectly visible. Make sure that your glasses or hair do not cover them. Put your hair back. Glasses with clear frames are somewhat acceptable, but only if the picture does not contain any glare. Sunglasses and tinted lenses, on the other hand, are prohibited.
  • Headwear is usually not permitted when you take your passport photo or visa photo. Nevertheless, if you cover your head for religious purposes, you can keep your headwear on. But please make sure that your face is visible from top to bottom, and that your ears are visible. Also, the headwear should not cast any shadows on your face.
  • If you usually have a beard, you are not obligated to shave it before taking your passport photo or visa photo. The point is for the picture to depict your regular appearance.

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

Children need to hold their own travel documents, so you have to take their pictures too. There is no significant difference between an adult’s passport photo and a child’s passport photo other than the fact that a child’s head is smaller. Thus, it can take less space in the shot. Here are some tips to help you when you photograph your children:

  • You should not take your child’s passport photo or visa photo when they are asleep. The eyes must be seeable.
  • When placing your child in a car seat for the shot, please do not forget to put a white sheet on the chair’s backrest. After all, the background has to be white.
  • If you prefer to lay your baby down and take the picture from above, put a white layer underneath the child so that the background is white.
  • You cannot appear at all in your child’s passport photo or visa photo. Not even your hands can be visible.
  • The baby must appear without headwear, pacifier, or any other object in the shot.
