The photo should be taken against a plain and uniform background. It should be printed in color, on a high quality photograph paper. The person in the photo should face the camera with eyes turned directly towards it. It is obligatory not to cover the face or hairline – it should remain clear and one is not allowed to cover it with hair or jewellery. While posing for a photograph one should close the mouth and have a neutral face expression, without any emotions.
