Passport photo-taking tips
Follow these guidelines to create the perfect passport picture.
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.

Our online passport photo tool PhotoAiD will create a biometric photo that matches the required specifications for all official documents. Our tool also uses artificial intelligence to check if all requirements are met (head straight, no unwanted shadows,...).
After installing the app, you may simply take a digital photo or upload one from your device.

Afterwards you will receive an email with a file ready to download digitally or simply order the prints of the photos delivered to your door!
Can I use a digital photo for an Emirati UAE passport?
Yes, simply take a photo with our PhotoAiD app and then send an online submission on the official government website (The Federal Authority for Identity and Citizenship, Customs, and Port Security's eChannels Residency and Citizenship portal) to get a valid passport.
Simply search for our PhotoAiD app in the Google Play or App Store to store, print, or send numerous biometric passport or ID photos. The app will save the images it creates in JPEG format, which is required by governments and official organisations around the world.
