Requirements for a photo

Photo specifications for the ISIC/ITIC card must comply to the following specifications:

  • A passport-style photograph (i.e. headshot only);
  • Only the cardholder is visible in the photograph;
  • The photograph must be clear, well defined and taken against a plain white or light-coloured background;
  • A recent photograph (i.e. taken in the last 6 months);
  • Face must not be covered and looking square to the camera;
  • Glasses are acceptable, as long as the eyes are clearly visible. Make sure that the frame does not cover any part of the eyes. Sunglasses are not acceptable;
  • A hairpiece or other cosmetic accessory is acceptable if it does not disguise cardholder’s normal appearance;
  • Cardholders wearing a head covering for religious reasons, must make sure full facial features are not obscured.

Please note: If the photographs do not meet the required specifications, they will be rejected and this will cause a delay in the card’s activation.
