Taking the perfect passport photo has never been more important. In this era of heightened security and strict identification protocols, submitting a high-quality photo in your passport application is a requirement if you want to be approved. Back in the day, people got away with hasty snapshots with cluttered backgrounds and poor lighting, but today, government agencies and international authorities demand nothing less than perfection.
If you are looking for a way to change the background of your passport photo so it can meet approval criteria, this is the article for you. We will walk you through the background removal process in just three simple steps.
How To Remove the Background of a Passport Photo
Step #1: Upload Your Image to Imagewith.AI Outcut
Click Upload Image and either select the image from your photo library, take the photo on your camera, or upload the photo from your files. Only images up to 50MB and 6000x6000 px can be used.
Make sure your photo meets the following criteria:
- Forward-facing and looking straight at the camera
- Close-up of the entire head and upper shoulders
- No hair in front of the face
- No smiling
- No head covering (unless it’s for religious or medical reasons)
- No shadows on the face
- No heavy makeup

Step #3: Download Passport Photo
Click the blue Download button to save your new passport photo.
This is our final result: As you can see, the background has been removed without a trace and the photo is ready to be accepted by passport officials.
