Official Canadian passport photo and visa photo requirements checklist
Photo studio and applicant requirements
- Photographs must be taken in person by a professional photo studio or a commercial photographer specializing in document photography
- Photos submitted with an application must be not older than 6 months
- Applicant’s facial expression must be neutral. Smiling and open mouth photos are not allowed
- Applicant must look straight at the lens of the camera, ensuring that both ears show up and not completely covered by hair.
- The photos must show a full head without any head covering unless it is absolutely required by religious beliefs or due to medical conditions that require the head to be covered at all times. If the head covering is used, the full face must be clearly visible without any shadow casting from the head covers
- Applicant’s eyes must be fully opened and represent the natural eye color. Photographs that have red eyes or altered and unnatural eye color are not accepted

Photographs of Children
- Photos must represent the child’s head and shoulders only and bio-metrical face measurements must be appropriately adjusted, while the photograph size must remain at 50mm x 70mm in size.
- Although we do realize that obtaining a neutral expression of a newborn baby can be difficult, we suggest taking as many photos as reasonable to obtain a neutral facial expression with closed mouth. The baby should face the camera directly straight on
- Newborn babies can be placed into a portable car seat and brought into a studio as long as a white blanket or photographic background paper is placed over the seat behind the child’s head and shoulders. Note that there must be no shadows on the face, shoulder’s, around the ears and especially on the background.

The photos cannot be reproduced from an existing photo that is older than 6 months at the time of application or taken outside of photo studio
