The selfie with passport allows to verify that you are the true owner of the document.
For this verification to work seamlessly, your face should be entirely visible in the photo and your passport must be held open at the identity page (the one with your picture)
Tips to take a good photo
- Don't hesitate to use landscape mode.
- Your phone might use mirror function by default. Make sure that the passport in the picture is not flipped.
- Make sure that the focus of your camera is spread evenly on both your face and passport. Modern cameras automatically detect faces by default and tend to blur out everything else, which makes passport information completely unreadable and incomparable
- Don’t stay too far away from your camera. Make sure your camera only captures your face and passport and is placed on a close range like shown below.
