ExpressionsDon’t smile while getting your picture captured and try to maintain neutral facial expressions.
Eyes Open and perfectly visible eyes are a must for the photo. Do stare at the camera and in case, you get a red-eye in the photo then do not try to fix it through digital alterations as it will be rejected. Retake the photo avoiding any red-eye and make sure that you must be alone in the picture with no other people or objects around you.
GlassesSunglasses and glasses with tinted lenses are strictly forbidden. On the other hand, if your prescription glasses have thick frames which cover your eyes then remove them as well. Your photo must be free from any reflection or glare.
HeadgearYou can cover your head only for the religious purpose but it must never block your face. However, wearing a hat or any other headwear isn’t allowed. Moreover, there isn’t any specification for the medical devices so you must double check with your agency. Make sure that there aren’t any shadows in the photo otherwise it will be rejected.
