Hi
Do you think my daughter's passport photo is ok or will it be rejected? Her nan took it to have it done earlier and thought it would be ok as the form said babies do not have to look at the camera (she is 7 months old) we have an appointment for a week fast track passport tomorrow as due to issues with her mother she has to come back to my country for a while.

My dd had one rejected when only 1 ear was visible. And they need to be looking forwards. .

My gut feeling would be no. I think when they say not looking at the camera they mean their eyes don't have to be looking at the camera. Not that their head can be turned to the side.

No that'll be rejected. It's ask not close enough and should have more of her face and less of her body.

**also not ask hmm

Agree, I think that will be rejected because of the head turn. Was it done by a photographer or photo booth? If a photographer then you should be able to get it taken again for free.

Hang on a minute *due to issues with her mother" ? Does the child's mother know you are getting a fast track passport to remove the child (from her?) You know you need a signed document from the other parent to remove the child from the UK and will be stopped at the airport without this yes?

No. It will definitely be rejected. Better to take it to someone who does passport photos and understands the regulations - Timpson's is a good place to start if you have a branch nearby.

I'm also a no.

Your situation sounds complicated. Have you checked that she can get into your country ok on a UK passport alone, and also that you are allowed to take her from the UK (you said you were leaving due to problems with her mother)

She needs to be looking at the camera and have face clearly visible and closer. Go to a photo shop or timpsons.

This ^^
Why is this child being removed from the UK?

LIZS Thu 23-Feb-17 19:43:43

No bulky clothing either. Are you applying for a British passport and does her mother know?

dementedpixie Thu 23-Feb-17 19:43:52

I'd say no too.

RebelRogue Thu 23-Feb-17 19:45:57

It is a no. Side view,bulky clothing,too much body not enough face.
But why are you taking her away? Does her mother know?

Where is your child's mother? Does she know you're leaving the country with your daughter?

Glitterspy Thu 23-Feb-17 19:48:24

Surely you won't be able to get a first passport without the consent of both parents, and all the documentation for the child i.e. Long form birth certificate etc?

The photo isn't right and won't be accepted.

The fast track process is very strict - I know because I had two first passport applications rejected, simply from having documentation slightly incorrect, third appointment I finally got accepted. It wasn't fun!

dementedpixie Thu 23-Feb-17 19:49:48

I hope your not abducting your daughter without her mother's knowledge

dementedpixie Thu 23-Feb-17 19:49:59

You're *

FourKidsNotCrazyYet Thu 23-Feb-17 19:51:17

No she needs to be face on to the camera. She's gorgeous!!!

ScarlettO89 Thu 23-Feb-17 19:56:59

1. She needs to face the camera.
2. It sounds like you're planning to abduct your daughter
3. Ear piercing a 7 month old should be illegal

I think the OP's ex is currently unable to care for the child due to mental health issues and the OP lives abroad, hence taking the child there?

OP, try taking the child to a photo shop such as Max Speilman. They're very good at getting a passable photo. Although we did have to bribe with raisins.

That doesn't make it right or legal.

GlitterGlue Thu 23-Feb-17 20:41:10

It does if she's agreed.

Although if she isn't able to consent I'm not sure of the legal position? Hand her over to social services?

Also should you be sharing a photo of a child in these circumstances?
