Zimbabwe Passport Photo specifications:

  • Your photograph must measure 4.5cmx3.5cm, with 70-80% of the photograph being covered by the applicant’s face. This means that when printed, the length from the bottom of the chin to the top of the forehead must be between 31-36mm.

  • Your photograph must feature a white background, without any marks or shadows visible on the applicant nor the backdrop
  • Your photograph must have been taken within the 6 months prior to your application being submitted
  • You must adopt a neutral expression when the photograph is being taken. Both eyes must be open and looking straight into the camera lens, as well as your mouth being closed
  • Your head must be square and straight to the camera, with the camera lens at eye level when the photograph is captured
