The requirements for U.S. passport photographs for babies have changed. We will no longer accept the photograph if the baby’s eyes are closed.
The following are a few tips for photographing your baby:
- You can lay the baby on a white/off-white sheet or place the baby in a car seat with a white/off-white sheet;
- The baby’s eyes must be open and looking straight ahead;
- No-one else should be visible in the photograph.
