The photo is in focus and is a true likeness and natural representation of the applicant. The photo shows sufficient contrast and fine features of the face, and the facial colouring is natural.
By high-quality, smooth photo paper, we mean paper intended for printing photos. The paper contains no raised surfaces or any other tangibleor visible irregularities that might distort the appearance of the applicant.
The photographer needs to know that the photo must be 400 dpi and judge whether the photo looks as if its minimum resolution is 400 dpi.
The photo appears in black and white on the travel document, but is stored in colour on the microchip.
The background colour must be light grey, pale blue, or white....
