Gibraltar Passport Requirements

If you need to send in photographs for a passport application, make sure they meet all the rules to avoid delays in your application.
You must send 2 identical photos when applying for a passport.

Photo Size

Photos must be professionally printed and 45 millimetres high by 35 millimetres wide - the standard size used in photo booths in the UK. Standard sizes in photo booths outside the UK can be different - make sure you get the right size.

You can’t use photos that have been cut down from larger pictures.

The photos

The photos must be:

  • in colour on plain white photographic paper
  • taken against a plain cream or light grey background
  • identical
  • taken within the last month
  • clear and in focus
  • without any tears or creases
  • unmarked on both sides (unless a photo needs to be countersigned)
  • unaltered by computer software

The image of you

Photos should show a close-up of your full head and shoulders. It must be only of you with no other objects or people.

The image of your head - from the crown of your head to your chin - must be sized between 29 millimetres and 34 millimetres deep (see example below).

How your head should appear in passport photos - described in text above

Your photo may be rejected unless it shows you:

  • facing forward and looking straight at the camera
  • with a neutral expression and your mouth closed
  • without anything covering the face
  • in clear contrast to the background
  • without a head covering (unless it’s worn for religious or medical reasons)
  • with eyes open, visible and free from reflection or glare from glasses
  • with your eyes not covered by sunglasses, tinted glasses, glasses frames or hair
  • without any shadows in the picture

Photos for child passports

  • Children must be on their own in the picture. Babies must not be holding toys or using dummies.
  • If the child is under 5, they don’t have to be looking directly at the camera or have a neutral expression.
  • If the child is under 1, their eyes don’t have to be open. If their head is supported by a hand, the hand mustn’t be visible in the photo.
