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.

Singaporean Passport photo requirements for babies 

If you are planning some holiday after your little one arrives, you must sort some formalities. It is important to get all the paperwork done before a few months of a baby’s birth to stay calm and go on a planning trip without stress. 

However, in Singapore, after the baby is born, the hospital gives the mother a Notification of Live Birth and an Advisory Note from the Immigration and Checkpoints Authority (ICA). Within 2 weeks, should use these documents to register for a birth certificate. You should get a passport for the baby from your embassy or high commission for 6 weeks.

Regarding babies passports, as long as they are valid, everything is fine. You don’t have to change the photo every month, even when you think that your child changed so much from a few months to a few years. Usually, babies' passports are valid for 5 years

Singaporean baby passport photo specifications

Regarding other factors, the baby photos for a Singapore passport should:

  • Be in colour and show the natural skin colour of your baby
  • Be photographed on a white background - the simplest way is to place a white t-shirt or pillowcase in their baby bed, car seat or on any soft, flat surface.
  • Show only the child - nothing or no-one else can appear in the photo. This means you cannot be holding your baby during the photoshoot because your hands should not appear in the frame
  • Show your baby without anything obscuring their face. This means they cannot have a pacifier in their mouth during the shoot. Also, make sure your baby’s hands are not covering any part of their face.
  • Show your child looking directly at the camera. This can be tricky if your baby turns their head to the side the moment you put them down on their back.
  • Show your child’s face with a neutral expression. Smiling is okay, but if your baby is laughing or crying your passport photo will probably be rejected.
  • Show the eyes of your model in a visible way; they have to be open. 
  • Have no red-eye effect. We recommend turning off your camera’s flash, but if you choose to use a flash make sure you remove any red-eye with a Passport Photo Online service before submitting your baby’s passport photo, as the editing is forbidden.

Make sure that the paper of printing also contributes to the quality of the photo, it has to be printed on high-quality paper at high resolution with a matt or semi-matt finish with no ink mark or crease. You cannot submit a damaged, creased or blurred photograph.

Baby passport photo at home - do it yourself!

While you might dread the process of your baby’s passport applications, we are to help you make it easier. Taking photos for documents might be fun and not stressful at all, especially for your little one!

You might decide to avoid crowds and strange photography ateliers and take photos at home instead, that’s an excellent idea! It can be fun for both you and your baby so let’s start!

5 steps guide for you about how to take photos for babies passport:

  1. Prepare the background baby - a wall with coloured wallpaper will not suit the passport requirements, try to find a light-coloured or white background. You can use a t-shirt, pillowcase, sheet, etc.
  2. Position - the easiest will be to put the baby on the bed covered with a white sheet, your little child gonna feel comfortable and maybe even curious of what their parent does upon their heads
  3. Face and eyes - your little model can’t be asleep and their eyes must be open and visible and look straight in the camera, make sure that nothing covers their face like toys, baby pacifiers, hands, etc. 
  4. Light and quality - it is best to take a baby passport photo in daylight as the room gets a lot of natural light. Make sure to put your child in a place where no shadows obscure their face and the photo is correctly exposed. 
  5. Watch your child - keep an eye on them during photo sessions because especially with toddlers, make sure they are safe and have fun during the photo session.
