What are the regulations on passport photos?

All new passport photos must include unique, measureable physical characteristics which enable facial recognition technology. This technology is known as biometrics, and the Paspic automated platform ensures that your photo is fully compliant with these new standards set by the International Civil Aviation Organization.


99.5% accuracy with Paspic

When you upload your passport photo to, our system will analyse your picture and notify you if it fails to pass the high standards outlined by the passport office. This means that you don’t have to waste time or money sending your passport application with photos which may be rejected.

Our system is so accurate that 99.5% of all our passport photos are approved upon the first submission to your country’s passport office. If in the unlikely instance that your Paspic passport photos are rejected, we’ll give you your money back.


Compliant passport photos for the whole family

It can be tough enough to make passport photos for adults, but it’s even harder to take a baby passport photo or child passport photos and ensure that all the official regulations are met. At Paspic we want to do everything we can to ensure your photos are up to scratch, which is why we have a number of tutorials to help you get it right.
