Passport Photo Requirements

Reading takes ~ 1 minute

The requirements for a biometric passport photo differ from those of a regular. Biometric passports are used for passports and identity cards, but not for e.g. driving licences.

Following demands are made on the format of the passport image

  1. The size of the image must amount to 1980 x 1440 pixels (height x width)
  2. The eye distance (pupil to pupil) must be between 15 and 20 percent of the screen width;
  3. The eyes must be in the range of 50-70% of the image height, measured from the bottom of the image.

The photo sample table and more detailed descriptions can be found here.

By means of our passport photo generator you are able to adjust your image to the biometric template with just a few hand movements.
