The rules of a baby passport picture are fairly relaxed in most countries because it is almost impossible to get a baby under the age of one year to look at a camera, sit still long enough for a photo to be taken and have a neutral expression.

Depending on the country passport photo you require, Reload will always provide you with a set of 4 or 6 baby passport photographs at an affordable price, and of course they come with a guarantee to be accepted.

Passport size photo baby / newborn / toddler / infant

For children under the age of 6 in the UK, the guideline for baby passport pictures are more relaxed due to the difficulties in taking photos of such children. The passport size photo must be 35mm x 45mm.

Reload (with the help of the Parent)will lay your baby carefully in store, with an appropriate cover sheet that is the colour of the required background for UK baby passport photos, so you can rest assured we will take care of this.

The guidelines for a newborn baby / toddler / infant passport photos are as follows:

  • The baby passport pic should be a good resemblance of the baby;
  • There is no requirement for an impartial expression in the passport photo.
  • Your babies head does not need to be straight and the baby doesn’t have to look straight into the camera.
  • Babies heads may be supported but your hand must not be visible in the photo.
  • The color of the baby’s eyes should be visibly clear in the infant passport picture.

Can babies eyes be closed or open in a Passport Photo?

This is such an important question and we get asked this a lot in our store. So here are the exact specifications.

The exact rules for babies are that if your baby is less than 1 year old (12 months old) a UK passport photo does not require a a baby’s eyes to be open.

Children aged above 1 year old do need their eyes to be open in their passport photo. As a responsible parent,  you can support their head with your hand, but your hand must not be visible in the passport photo.

Children under the age of six, do not have to be looking directly at the camera or have a plain expression – this is a rule that cause so much confusion as well.
