Post-Brexit Blue Passport UK Requirements

Here are the Post-Brexit UK passport photo and Digital Photo specifications

  • Post-Brexit UK Passport Photo Background colour
    We consistently have customers always insisting that the background colour be white.
    According to Her Majesty’s Passport Office the passport photo background colour should be in Cream (off-white) or Light Grey. There is logic behind this, as White will reflect light back to the camera, and also create shadows. Off white creates less shadows.
    Our customers often tend to smile while taking a photo with us – BUT do NOT smile otherwise this will be a reason of rejection. Why? Because teeth can reflect the flash back! – Grimaces will be accepted, but maybe not socially!
  • Children Passport Photos
    This is critical as there should not be any toys, parent’s hands supporting the child, any other object or person visible in the photograph. Reload specialises in calming infants down and we take passport photos of infants by lying them down, as opposed to holding them up which has caused many failures in Embassies in the past.
  • Can my child wear a head band in her passport photo?
    As long as it does not cover any part of the face, head bands are allowed.
  • Infant Passport Photos
    You do not need to have their eyes open – important as this can save a lot of time, especially if your child is resting.
  • Are you allowed to wear your glasses in a Post-Brexit UK passport photo?
    you can have your glasses on if you wear them daily – HOWEVER, no reflections are allowed – so bear this in mind. Our staff can assess whether the photo we take will pass.
  • The subject should be forward & straight with eyes open, with no tinted glasses, sunglasses or anything which causes reflections.
  • To avoid the risk of rejection, we recommend taking your photograph without glasses.
  • Photo should be taken without anything covering face.
  • Photo should be with neutral expression, mouth closed and no smile.
  • Only one person is allowed in a photo (no objects like toys, hands or any other person visible).

Child Post-Brexit UK Passport Photo Specification

  • Child aged six or above will required to follow the above specifications.
  • Need a clear image of child
  • No need to have a neutral expression, or to look directly in the camera but it is necessary to face forward
  • Babies under the age of onedo not need to have their eyes open, but it is preferable if the eyes are open.
  • Photo should be taken within the last month.
  • It should be clear, not damaged or torn and there should be no marks on it
  • Should be printed professionally, avoid printing at home.

The main point is that the Passport photo or Visa Photo should be taken to the that the UK Visa photo and Passport photo require, and we will ensure that your passport photos meets the criteria that the digital passport photo rules require. Not correctly taken passport photos will cause a reason for failure of your application. If you do attempt this yourself, here are some helpful notes that will ensure that your passport photo is approved first time around.
