A really easy format to get passport pictures. Very fast response to my questions via email.

Ann Y.

Excellent service. Very good software that enhanced our photos. They also did a manual check and had me redo one of the pictures for free. I have only used online passport photos for more than 10 years. This is by far the best.

Philippine passport photo criteria suggests that the photo should represent your whole head and shoulders, with no visible objects or people behind or next to you. Make sure that the baby is alone in the picture and your arms are not visible if you are holding him or her.

  • Two photos are required 
  • The photos must be identical and taken recently (within the last 6 months)
  • A white or off-white background is recommended

  • Color : In color. Black and white are unacceptable.
  • Size : Philippine passport photo size should be 45 x 35 mm.

Most common reasons Philippine Passport Photos get rejected 

Some common reasons for having your Philippine Passport Photos rejected are listed below : 

  • The “Red eye” effect - caused by a strong flash. 
  • Tilted head - Looking directly into the camera lens is absolutely necessary! Your photo will be rejected if you take a semi-profile, or if your head is bent and you do not look into the camera lens.
  • Unequal lighting - The best way to take your passport photo is to find a room in your house where the light is natural.
  • Smiling or making a funny face - make sure your baby/child has a neutral facial expression on the passport photo.
  • Digital retouching to alter or enhance facial features - you can’t use a digital program to change your baby’s appearance or true colors. 
  • Passport photos are altered - Writings, sharpness, fold etc. 

Photo background and lighting

It is a common mistake to take a passport photo on a background color other than the one specified in the requirements. 

The official requirement states that that Philippine passport photo is considered appropriate only when the photo is taken in front of a pure off-white background. 

There should also not be any designs or objects on the wall you take the shot at. The background should be clean and uniform. 

The light should be even - it is necessary for the face to be equally lighted. No shadows should be seen on your forehead. Make sure that the lighting is not over or under exposed, and that the face is visible.

Biometric Photo For Philippine Baby Passport

Children need their own passport when leaving the Philippines with their parents, family or friends. Their age doesn’t matter. There are no children exempt from these rules. Every child is often expected to have an individualized picture of them taken. Having a proper photo of little ones can be a challenge, but it is a must. 

A few more details you should pay attention to are listed here, among the other regulations mentioned above.

  • Children must be alone in the picture with no other objects or people. Toys, bottles or pacifiers should not be visible. 
  • Babies should not be holding toys or using dummies
  • Children under the age of 6 don’t have to necessarily look directly at the camera or have a neutral expression.
  • Newborn babies don’t have to keep their eyes open. If their head is held up by a hand, make sure that it is not visible. 
  • To guarantee a comfortable spot, you can lay your child down on a bed or you can make him or her sit in a car seat.

Using the digital passport photo validator can help you create your own passport photo as well as check if the requirements are met.

About the document

Phillipine Baby Passport

The Philippine passport is a very important document issued to citizens and nationals of the Philippines. It is a document that allows Philippine people to travel, often with a country-specific visa exemption and specific periods of time, and it is also an ID form that can be shown by any Philippine person to prove their identity.

Minors also need their own passport if they are going to travel. A child born to a Phillipine parent (including a child born outside of the Philippines) is by law considered a Philippine citizen. Please note: Issuing a minor’s passport (up to the age of 18) requires one or both of the parents’ signatures. If the parents are divorced, the child’s legal guardian must demonstrate original or legal evidence of custody. In the event of shared custody, both parents must be present in order to have the child passport issued. A minor's passport will be issued for five years.
