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

Now, taking your passport photo or visa photo at home is not the same as taking a selfie. It may be similar, but in this case, there are a few rules you have to keep in mind. Below, you will read about everything you need to know in the process of taking your own passport photo.

  • In most cases, such as this one, the background of the photo must be white. To achieve that, all you have to do is to take your picture against a white wall. If such a wall is not accessible to you, you can take a white sheet and hang it on a wall. Just choose one that is not see-through. The point is that the background must not contain colors, patterns, nor shadows.
  • The light is of the essence as well. First of all, make sure that the light is located in front of you when you take the photo. That eliminates the possibility of having shadows on your face. Also, you should make sure that the intensity of the light is not too high or too low.
  • In the picture, your head must appear straight and facing the camera. Bear in mind that portrait-style photos are rejected because both sides of your face must be equally visible.
  • Smiling is not an option in your passport photo or visa photo. Neither is any facial expression. The only permitted expression you can display is neutral.
  • You cannot submit a passport photo or visa photo in which your eyes are obscured. If you wear prescription eyeglasses, you should take them off to avoid flash reflection. As you can probably imagine, sunglasses and glasses with tinted lenses are not allowed, either.
  • As a general rule, you cannot cover your head with anything when you take your passport photo or visa photo. However, headwear is permitted for religious purposes. But even then, your face must be visible from the top of your forehead to the bottom of your chin. Also, your headwear must not create shadows on your face.
  • If your regular appearance includes a beard, you are not compelled to shave it before you take your passport photo or visa photo.

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

Children need to hold their own passports and visas when traveling. That is why you will need pictures for them too. Taking your child’s passport photo is not that different from taking the passport photo of an adult. The only difference is that since a child’s head is smaller, it can take less space in the picture. Here are a few tips for you:

  • Photographing a newborn may be easier if you lay him/her on his/her back and take the photo from above. But if you decide to proceed as such, remember to put a white sheet underneath the baby. That way, the background of the photo is white.
  • Some people put their small children in a car seat for the photo session. If you want to do that, you have to cover the backrest of the chair with a white layer to ensure a white background.
  • While it may seem simpler, you cannot photograph your small child when he/she is asleep. The eyes must be visible.
  • You have to remove your child’s headwear, as well as any other object, from the shot. We are talking here about pacifiers and toys.
  • Your child has to appear in his/her passport photo or visa photo alone. Not even your hands can appear in the shot.
