Pictures for Official Documents

Official documents are documents that grant the subjects some rights. For example, a passport can allow the applicant to travel abroad and re-enter the home country. In Ireland, the official documents that people most often use are passports, ID cards, and driving licenses. However, without qualified photos, you can never apply for these official documents successfully. To save you time and energy, we have collected the photo specifications of the Irish passport below for you. You can feel free to get familiar with them if you need them. We can also offer the services of adjusting the photos you took in person and guarantee you a compliant picture for a specific official document.

Sizes and Requirements for Photos of Irish Official Documents

If you want to travel or have a business trip to Ireland, the most important official documents to prove your identity are your Irish passport and ID card. Besides, your Irish driving license can confirm your identity as well.

We are glad to inform you that the Irish passport and driver's license photo requirements are the same and we will introduce them together to you first.

Your photos need to be your biometric pictures, which means your selfies, photos with casual poses, or photos cut out from a group shot are not allowed. The photos should be 35 x 45 mm in size, showing the applicant's entire face and upper shoulders. The background of the photos must be white, without any designs and patterns. As for the pose, the applicant should open his or her eyes and fix them on the camera lens, close his or her mouth and keep a neutral expression to ensure his or her facial features are visible. The photos should be good-quality ones with an age of no more than 6 months.
