When it comes to passport photos in Singapore, the ICA does not have a strict dress code. It is advised to wear formal clothing on the upper part of the body for official documents. No headgear or uniforms are allowed, although clothing for religious or medical reasons is accepted. For a simple and nice look, plain clothes with sharp contrast are recommended. This includes shirts, tank tops, blouses, polo shirts, jackets, vests, suits, blazers, long sleeves, and religious attire. Additionally, make sure your face and neck are the focus of the photo, and keep a neutral facial expression with your forehead and eyebrows relaxed. Hair should not cover your face, and hats, head coverings, sunglasses, jewellery, or large hair accessories are not allowed, although exceptions can be made for religious attire.
Taking a passport photo at home is an easy task thanks to the Singapore Government Agency Website. All you need is a smartphone camera (Android or iPhone) and a plain white background like a wall.
Later on, when you upload your photos, the PhotoBooth Online cropper tool will resize and crop frame them to the correct format file you can download easily.
Make sure to dress according to the tutorial and remove any head coverings or facial jewellery, unless it’s for religious reasons.
Eyeglasses are fine, as long as the lenses don’t cause reflection.
Light makeup is allowed, but no filters or effects should be applied.
Ensure good lighting with no shadows on your face.
Keep your head straight and eyes open, and don’t smile.
After taking the photo, upload it to PhotoBooth Online and download the result. You can now enjoy your best passport picture ever!
