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

Now that you know the Turkmenistan passport photo requirements, it is time to learn how to take your picture so that it is considered valid. The rules and guidelines for a Turkmenistan passport photo are listed down below.

  • As we already mentioned above, the background of your passport photo or visa photo must be white. To achieve the best possible result, you should take your picture in front of a white wall. It is okay if you do not have a white wall in your house. If that is the case, take a white sheet that is not see-through and use it as background. Just make sure that there are no colors, patterns, and shadows on it.
  • The setting in which you decide to take your passport photo or visa photo must be adequately lighted as well. The intensity must be balanced, and the light should come from in front of you. That way, there are no shadows on your face.
  • In your passport photo or visa photo, you must appear with your head straight and your face forward. Do not tilt or rotate your head in any way. Both sides of your face must be visible. Portrait-style pictures will be rejected.
  • You cannot appear in your passport photo or visa photo with a smile on your face. Now with any other expression, for that matter. The only permitted facial expression is neutral.
  • We cannot stress enough the importance of your eyes’ visibility. They cannot be obstructed by anything. If the frames of your glasses are discreet, you can keep them on. Otherwise, you are required to take them off. Plus, there can be no flash reflection in your picture. Sunglasses and eyeglasses with tinted lenses are not allowed under any circumstances.
  • Headwear is allowed for religious or cultural purposes. Nevertheless, you should know two things if you wear hijab, for instance. One, your face must be visible from top to bottom. And two, your hijab cannot cast shadows on your face.
  • If your everyday appearance included a beard, you are not required to shave it before you take your passport photo or visa photo. As long as your picture depicts your current look, you are in the clear.

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

Taking the passport photo or visa photo of your child can be a bit challenging, but you have to do it, nonetheless. Children must carry their own travel documents. Below, we put together a few tips for you:

  • Do not take the photo of your child when he/she is asleep. The eyes must be visible.
  • Only your child can appear in the picture. Some parents choose to hold the baby during the photo session. If you proceed like that, not even your hands can be visible.
  • You have to remove your child’s headwear, as well as the pacifier and any other objects from the shot.
  • If you decide to take your child’s passport photo or visa photo while he/she sits in a car seat, remember to cover the backrest of the chair with a white cloth. The background must be white.
  • Some people put the baby on his/her back to take the photo from above. Before doing that, place a white layer underneath the child to achieve a white background.
