Documents of Applying for The Singapore IC 

If you are a Singapore citizen or permanent resident and reach the age of 15, then you have to register for a Singapore IC (also called National Registry Identity Card/NRIC). If you are a Singapore citizen, you should submit a baptism or religious certificate, deed poll for a change of name with consent from both parents and recent passport-sized photographs. If you are a permanent resident, you should hand in your compliant pictures and page(s) of your current passport that contains your personal particulars.


Standards of The Singapore IC Photo

As we can see from the above documents required for application, we can easily find that the photograph is a must when you apply for a Singapore IC. Hence, you should make your photo coincide with relevant rules as follows, or you will be ruthlessly rejected because of disqualified pictures.

  • You should submit two color photographs taken within the last three months.
  • Digital photographs must be 400x514 pixels for upload of photos via e-Services.
  • Printed photographs must be on a matte or semi matte finish.
  • Image file format should be jpg, jpeg or png file extension.
  • File size should be no more than 2 MB.
  • Your head, neck and shoulders should be clearly visible. 
  • No smiling or showing your teeth. A neutral facial expression is preferred.
  • Head gear should be in dark color against the white background. 
  • Glasses should have transparent and clear lenses without heavy frames. 

What Should I Wear When Taking Singapore ID Pictures?

When snapping Singapore ID photographs, you are not allowed to wear white clothes, which will blend into the background. Except for color, there are no restrictions on clothing. However, you can choose flattering and decent clothes to make you look better in the photo. After all, your Singapore ID image will accompany you for many years!

  • Choose clothes with a soft color, such as blue, green or pink. Remember to pick the color that matches with your skin tone and makes you look good. 
  • Wear more formal clothing. Clothes with a collar are preferred.
  • By the way, do not wear any uniforms or any other similar dress codes.

Can I Wear Heavy Makeup When Snapping My Singapore ID Images?

Your Singapore ID will show your appearance for identity and face recognition and your ID photo should reflect your real appearance, so heavy makeup is not acceptable. But you can wear slight and natural makeup. For example, you can apply a foundation that is close to your skin color and wear slight lipstick. 

Can I Take A Selfie for My Singapore ID Photos?

According to official requirements, selfie is not recommended as the result is usually not ideal and will cause delay to your application. Therefore, you should ask somebody else for help or use a tripod to snap images. If you invite one of your friends, your family members or other photographers to assist you, you should let him or her know about the rules of Singapore ID pictures well. If you use a tripod and take photos by yourself, you should adjust the distance between you and the camera to make sure that your full face and shoulders are covered in the frame. 

Where Should I Go to Snap My Singapore ID Pictures?

You can go to pharmacies, drug stores, photo booths or photo studios to shoot your Singapore images. But there is a better way for you and you don't have to go anywhere- just stay at home! It will be quite convenient for you to take pictures at home. More importantly, you can get a compliant ID photo at a lower expense. We will share some tips with you below. Just follow us!

  • Equipment. Any device to capture quality images is acceptable, including your smartphone or a digital camera. 
  • Background. Use a white wall without other stuff as your background. If you fail to find such a background, don't worry, because you can use our picture editor to change the background as you like. 
  • Lighting. Daylight is preferred. If possible, get two light sources and place them on both sides of the subject. 
  • Distance. The distance between you and the camera should be 1 to 3 meters. Adjust the distance for several times to find the optimal distance. 
  • Posture. Stand or sit straight. Do not rotate your head. Look directly at the camera lens. 

Edit Your Singapore ID Photograph through Our Web-based Service

If you are not sure about whether the size and background of your photo is compliant or not, our online photo editing tool can help you with this. The process is quite easy. You just need to choose the document, upload your picture and wait for a few seconds. Then we will scan the photo with our advanced technology and correct its size and background. What's more, you can use us to check the compliance of your passport photo and driving license photo.
