No Smiling or No Eyeglasses for Passport photo or Visa Photo.

Why?
Because every Governments are collecting your facial image in what is called
" Biometaric Data" from your photo digitally for use with Facial Recognition System
- an advanced technology that helps prevent fraud by
electronically verifying identity based on each person's unique facial features.

CIA, FBI, Homeland Security, Airport security officers or foreign governments - they don't care
how good, cute or bad you look in a passport or visa photos.
All they care is to collect accurate digital data of your face,
so Electrical "Facial Recognition System" works efficiently.

If your image is distorted with smiling or eye glasses, you will have more chance
to be pulled out off a line at a foreign airport, and you will find yourself all alone in an isolated room.

They want to know if you are a member of a bad group or black-listed.
To verify that you are not, each time you go through an Airport security or immigration,
they compare your digital date(called Biometaric Passport data) against bad guys information.
And since no bad guy is smiling or glasses on when he/she is captured and photographed,
you also don't smile so Governments can compare your facial data more promptly and accurately.

When you smile, your facial data is distorted which makes it more difficult for Government to
compare your facial data with bad guys list smoothly, which means you will
have greater chance to be called out from line and interviewed in a separate room alone.

Clothing for Passport and Visa Photos

US, Canada and EU countries have no written "dress code" for Passport Photos.
However, here are some tips on what to wear for Passport Photo or Visa Photos..
In general, cover your shoulders, wear any color except white, no big earrings.

Some countries are very particular about your clothing.
You have to follow not only the color of clothing but sometimes style( like collared shirt) is required.
If you are taking passport photos for the following countries, you must check application.

Jamaica, Hong Kong, Philippines, Iran( women only) and Saudi Arabia( women only).

 

Please Avoid white clothes
For most countries, white clothes should be avoided.
These photos will be rejected because " There is not sufficient contrast against background" for Passport or Visa applications.
Remember that they will collect your biometaric data by scanning your photos - if the machine cannot get enough information of your head and shoulders against background, your Passport or Visa applications will be rejected.

 



In winter, please avoid turtleneck sweater.
To collect your facial Biometaric data, your neck should be clear.

 


Cover your shoulders
In summer, please cover your shoulders. You look almost naked in Passport or Visa photos.
Bringing a shawl to cover your shoulders would be a gracious idea.

 



No big earrings.
Some counties do not allow to wear earrings (like Philippines and US Green Card photos).
Let's keep it simple.

 



No glasses
Some counties do not allow eyeglasses, like French Visa and Mexican Passport photos.
UK(Britain) "recommends" not wearing glasses.

As a general rule, we strongly recommend NOT to wear glasses.
Governments want to collect your Biometaric data based on your natural facial information.
You don't wear the same glasses for other 10 years anyway.
If you are asked, you can just take them off.

If you insist wearing them, you must understand that you are taking chances.

 

No big hair covering your ears.
In some cases, you should show your both ears clearly, especially US Green Card Photos.
   


Tattoos, Beard, Hair Dye, Gender Transition
Question: Do I have to submit new photos when I put new tattoos or made a gender transition?
Answer: According to the Government, new photos are only required if your appearance has significantly changed from what is in your passport or visa photo.
It is not necessary to submit new photos when:
Dyed your hair to new color
Grow a beard
You might need to submit new photos when:
Undergone significant facial surgery or trauma
Added or removed numerous/large facial piercing or tattoos
Undergone a significant amount of weight loss or gain
Made a gender transition

Unwritten rules on Green Card photos - Both Ears shown. No earrings. No smile. No eyeglasses.

There is nothing clearly written on the US Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) web site about Ears, Earrings or Smiling.
However, we've seen many photos rejected simply because the ears are not shown or the person is smiling.
This is particularly the case for Green Card and US Citizenship application processes.
It seems that in real world the US Citizenship and Immigration Services wants photos
with your both ears shown, no earnings or no smiling.

Why take chances?
The purpose of the photo is to get your US Visa or US Immigration process achieved promptly.
Just let your both ears shown, take off your earrings and no smiling and you are just fine.

By the same token, we strongly recommend that you would take your eyeglasses off..
Yes, the rule says that you could wear eyeglasses, as long as your eyes are clearly visible and
no reflections from the lenses nor frames.
But HOW clear is CLEAR to US immigration officers?
Without eyeglasses, your US Immigration or US Visa process will go smoothly with no problem.
With eyeglasses on , there is a chance that the photo would be rejected.
Why do you take chances here?

In short, let's make your US Visa and US Immigration photos as worry-free as possible.
You can't go wrong with "Both ears shown, no earrings, no smile and no eyeglasses" photos, then why not?

You need a set of two 2" x 2" photos, white background with space in the margin.

What is the "Space in the margin" of US Citizenship Photos ?


According to the form M-476 "A Guide to Naturalization",
You must include 2 standard, passport-style, color photographs with your application.

Be sure there is enough white space in the margin of the photographs so you will have room
to sign your full name if your application is approved.

The photographs must also be:
Unmounted and printed on thin paper,
on a white background with a full frontal view of your face;
and
Taken within 30 days of the date they are sent to USCIS.

You should print your name and A.number lightly in pencil on the back of each photograph.

(you will be requested to sign at the US Citizenship office)

1. What do they mean by "there is enough white space in the margin of the photographs"?
-1 On the same page they write " 2 standard, passport-style" photos.
-2 The sample photo on the same page is nothing different from regular US passport photos.

 

So what do they mean by "enough white space"?
Here is the answer we received from a Naturalization Immigration officer.

-1 They need space so the applicant can sign on the photo (see our sample photo).
-2 They want space above shoulders, so the signature can be right ON the photo.
-3 They are NOT requesting any extra space outside of the image.
Bottom line is that as long as you can see enough space for a signature on the photo, it's fine.
Just be careful if you have "big hair" that diminishes this space - brush to the back or tie them up.
It's not about you look pretty with big hair, it's about your application accepted smoothly.

 

2. How to "print your name and A.number lightly in pencil on the back".
 

The problem is that regular pencil doesn't work well on back side of photo paper.

Here are tips:
1. A Naturalization Immigration Officer told us that using an eraser works with regular pencil.
Rub a couple of times on the area where you will write first, then write with a regular pencil.

2. Or, using a 4B to 6B pencil, also known as "graphite pencil" or "carbon pencil" works on photo paper.
They are available from rag-shop or art supply store.
We have 6B pencils for you to use at our store for your convenience.

Finland

Finland Passport Photo.
Finnish passport photo
- We are processing in 4 cm x 5 cm (see below).


Finland's explanations on Finnish Passport Size is confusing.
- It says that regular EU size of 35mm x 45mm is NOT accepted = so it's NOT 35mm x 45mm.
- It says the size MUST BE 36mm x 47mm - here.
- But 36mm x 47mm is just a minimum size and bigger is better - here it says
" Extra space around the head only makes it easier to scan the photo.
In fact, it can often be useful to leave the edges of the photo intact."
- There is no mentioning as to what exactly outside size they want.

We will give you a set of two photos in 4 cm x 5 cm outside and the head size is 25mm - 35mm.

As a side note:

It would be much easiier if they tell us
1) this is the size of photo we want
2) this should be the size of head on the photo
then we can process accordingly.

Some websites indicate 35mm x 40mm (5mm shorter than EU standard passport size)
such as France, Swiss.(there is no such "passport size photo" in the world though).
If you want us to cut to 35mm x 40mm, we will, but all photos we made in 35mm x 45mm have been accepted in all Shengen countries without any problem in the past.
