- You must be facing forward with a close-up of your full head, shoulders and the upper body.

Perfect for child passports
The guidelines and rules are also valid for babies and children. Of course, there are some small exceptions, but the subject needs to be in the photo by themselves, no matter their age. Otherwise, please consider the following:
