  • Your photograph must have been taken within the 6 months prior to your application being submitted
  • You must adopt a neutral expression when the photograph is being taken. Both eyes must be open and looking straight into the camera lens, as well as your mouth being closed
  • Your head must be square and straight to the camera, with the camera lens at eye level when the photograph is captured
