Consider the distance
Keep your front-facing camera 16–20 inch (40–50 cm) away from the face. For rear cameras, keep a 4–6 foot (1–2 meter) distance.
Keep your head and body straight
Look directly into the camera and avoid tilting your body. Remember, portrait mode is unacceptable for passport photos.
Prepare good lighting
Take your passport photos in a daylight setting, like near a window on a sunny day. Shadows on your face or in the background are not permitted.

Lighting and quality of the photo
Lighting should be even, with no overexposure or underexposure. The ideal lighting would be a natural light with no reflections or shadows.
As for the quality of the photo, it should be a professional photo, clear, focused, and not pixelized. Any alterations such as flipped or distorted photos and filters are prohibited on photo Singapore visa.
Clothes, jewelry, and glasses
Accessories such as jewelry and headcovers are not allowed except for religious reasons. Allowed head covers should be dark-colored and not alter the face’s visibility.
Glasses are allowed but should obstruct the visibility of the face and eyes (no thick frame, no tinted or colored lenses, no reflections) and colored lenses are not allowed.
You can wear any clothes but it’s preferred to wear dark-colored clothes that cover the shoulders.
Hairstyle, beard, and makeup
The hairstyle shouldn’t cover the eyes or face, they should be tied when necessary. The beard should ideally be well-trimmed and not alter the face’s visibility.
Makeup is allowed but should be light and shouldn’t cover any distinctive features (moles, scars, birthmarks).
Position, eyes, and facial expression
Your facial expression has to stay neutral, with no smile, and mouth closed. Shoulder and hair must be fully visible in the photo. Eyes should be opened and fully visible (no fringe covering the eyes, accessories, or such).

How to take a Singapore visa photo with your phone?
You want to use our photo editor but you are not sure how to take a good photo with your phone? Here is some advice to take the best visa photo :
- Ask someone to take the photo for you. It’s better to have someone else take your photo at about 1m from the face. Selfies won’t work and you have to show your entire face and shoulders.
- The use of filters or altered photos won’t be accepted, turn every filter off before taking your photo!
- Make sure you’re not wearing any forbidden accessories like a hat, sunglasses, or earphones.
- Be careful to have the best lighting possible. A natural light near a window for example can work just fine! Just avoid any overexposure, underexposure, shadows, or unwanted reflections.

- Don’t tilt your head, you should sit straight and look at the camera
- If you wear any headcovers for religious reasons, avoid choosing a light-colored one, you should wear a dark-colored one on your Singapore visa photo.
