What is the Indian Status Card
The Indian Status card may be used to access some benefits and programs for indigenous peoples provided by the Indigenous Services Canada (also termed ISC for short). The card may also be used as an identity document when crossing the land and sea borders between Canada and the USA.
Indian Status card photo requirements
It is important to meet the photo requirements when applying for the Indian Status card as your application will be more likely to get accepted. To apply for an Indian Status card, you must submit two same Canadian passport-style photos. If the photo does not meet the requirements, it could be rejected by the authorities. In order to have your Indian Status card accepted, your biometric photos must meet these requirements:
- The applicant’s face must be neutral, clearly visible and in focus, covering 31 mm (1 ¼ inches) in length and 36mm (1 7/16 inches) from your chin to the top of your head.
- If you wear prescription glasses, you are allowed to keep them on, but make sure that your eyes are not covered.
- The photo must have been taken within the last 12 months
- The photo must 50mm wide and 70mm high (2 inches x 2 ¾ inches).
Furthermore, to truly fulfill the requirements of the Indian Status card, your guarantor must date and sign one of the photos. On one of the photos, it is required that your guarantor writes: “This is the true likeness of [insert the full name of the adult or child or dependent adult who is applying for the Indian Status card].” On the other photo, it is required that you write the name of the photo studio used to take the photo and the date on which the photo was taken.
