ISO/IEC 19794-5

The use of face as a biometric identifier has some drawbacks: All the remaining Face Image Types inherit the properties of this type. Images have been reduced in size and compressed.

The present description is a simplified version of the standard and the recommendations and has not the pretension to be exhaustive. Photograph for ID and travel documents passport, ID card The photographs for ID and travel documents, showing the portrait of the holder have a long history of use.

Eye glasses The portrait shall show the eyes with no light reflection off the glasses and no tinted lenses.


The photographs for travel documents usually needs to be recent – not older than 6 months – if submitted as a print, it should be on high quality paper with high resolution. ICAO completed the ISO standard publishing in Documentpart 1, volume 1, examples of acceptable or not acceptable photographs for travel document based on this standard.

A precise formalization is here proposed to limit as much as possible the ambiguity. Unfortunately, due to the lack of clear specifications and of an appropriate benchmark, comparing the performance of such systems is not easy.
