The two photos must:
■ show a full front view of the person’s head showing full face centred in the middle of the photo;
■ be clear, well-defined and taken against a plain white background without shadows;
■ be produced from the same unretouched film or from the same file capturing the digital image or from two identical photos exposed simultaneously by a split-image or multi-lens camera;
■ be original photos (not taken from any existing photo);
■ New: measure between 25 mm and 30 mm (1” and 1 1/5”) from chin to crown (top of hair);
■ have a 35 mm x 45 mm (1 3/8″ x 1 3/4″) finished size;
■ be on photographic paper that has a backing which accepts and retains the date. Photos without this backing are not acceptable;
