Hi there, I have just got a first passport for my daughter for our upcoming holiday. I applied online for it. When trying to upload the digital code from the photo shop it wouldn’t work so I took a picture of the photo with my iPhone and uploaded that. It said it could not see the outline of her head but gave the chance to proceed and say why which I did. I also sent one of the original pics in with our birth certificates. The passport has come fairly quickly and I do not think the photo looks very clear at all. My question if anyone could answer is if the photo was not clear enough would they have issued the passport or contacted me for another? I am really rather worried about this and wish I had just went back to the photo shop and queried why the code didn’t work now, in hindsight this would’ve been the better thing to do.

I think you are right Sharon as it was weeks before that I got it taken. I really shouldn’t have waited and caused myself this worry. My gut feeling was that in this day and age they wouldn’t have sent out a passport that wasn’t ok but the worrier in me took over and it has been playing on my mind. Appreciate all the responses
Goodness me Chrissa what a mucking about for her eh! Like it is so easy to get children to pose perfectly. I think the part which worried me is that when they said you can proceed with it and give reason why but it may cause travel problems made me think it will be issued regardless of suitability. I know if I posted a physical pic and it wasn’t ok they would have sent it back but was unsure digitally after it said that.
Yes, before posting here I tried googling the definite answer and it seems a common problem that they say they can’t see the outline of your face. I wonder if they actually used the digital one or the physical photo I sent in with the birth certificates, I thought it worth putting in as had spares anyway
