It is forbidden to be photographed with colored lenses on the passport. Artistic processing of pictures to improve the image is also not allowed. Such restrictions are spelled out in the order of the Ministry of Internal Affairs of Russia. In addition, it is forbidden to photograph in tinted glasses, as well as clothing that covers part of the chin.

At the same time, it is possible to use hats for persons whose religion does not provide for the appearance in front of strangers with a bare head. The basic requirements for passport photos remain the same. These must be black and white or color photographs of 35 x 45 mm, identical and appropriate to the age of the applicant. Passports with prohibitive marks, for example, about crossing the state border, are recognized as invalid. At the same time, Russians can enter the taxpayer identification number, Rh factor and blood group into the document, but the placement of information about nationality is not provided,
