Rules for Canadian Passport Photos

  • You must submit two (2) identical Canada passport photos with each application.
  • Your Canada Passport Photos must be:
  • – taken by a commercial photographer.
  • – 50 mm wide X 70 mm high (2 inches wide X 2 3/4 inches long)
  • – clear, sharp and in focus. Photos may be in color or in black and white.
  • – taken with a neutral facial expression (eyes open, mouth closed, no smiling).
  • – taken straight on, with face and shoulders centered and squared to the camera.
  • – taken with plain white or off-white background and no shadows.


The following must be included on the back of one photo:

  • the name and complete address of the photo studio and the date the photo was taken. The photographer may use a stamp or handwrite this information. Stick-on labels are unacceptable.
  • your guarantor clearly write: “I certify this to be a true likeness of (applicant’s name)” and sign his or her name (unless you are applying to renew a passport, as no guarantor is necessary for renewals).
