Can someone please tell me if it's okay that my photos were stamped on the back of my "BOTH" of 2 photos!
IRCC website gives an instruction about "ONE" of the photo...but it does not clearly say the other photo should be blank on the back of the photo or not. I had feeling it should not be stamped both however I was refused to take another photo unless my doc. sent all back to me...and plus the photographer says she always stamps for back of 2 photos and never received any complains so it should be fine. I don't want to waste my time to be rejected or return all of my applications to lose another a few months!

Hope someone has an answer, please!

Hello there,

Thank you for sharing your question and situation with us.

IRCC identifies all photo specifications for PR on their website, here is an excerpt:
Your photos must be:
  • Taken by a commercial photographer.
  • 50 mm wide X 70 mm high (2 inches wide x 2- 3/4 inches long) and sized so the height of the face measures between 31 mm (1- 1/4 inches) and 36 mm (1- 7/16 inches) from chin to crown of head (natural top of head).
  • Clear, sharp and in focus.
  • Taken with a neutral facial expression (eyes open and clearly visible, mouth closed, no smiling).
  • Taken with uniform lighting and not show shadows, glare or flash reflections.
  • Taken straight on, with face and shoulders centred and squared to the camera (i.e. the photographs must show the full front view of the person’s head and shoulders, showing full face centred in the middle of the photograph).
  • Taken in front of a plain white background with a clear difference between your face and the background. Photos must reflect/represent natural skin tones.
  • Original photos that are not altered in any way or taken from an existing photo.What is an altered photo?
  • Reflect your current appearance (taken within the last six months)
  • Professionally printed on plain, high quality photographic paper (photos printed at home and photos printed on heavy weight paper are not acceptable)
The back of one photo must include:
  • the subject’s name and date of birth
  • the name and complete address of the photography studio
  • the date the photograph was taken
The photographer may use a stamp or handwrite this information. Stick-on labels are unacceptable.


These are the specifications you want to aim to meet for this application. You may want to contact the IRCC Call Centre or use their web form for information specific to your situation and application.


We hope this information is helpful.


Sincerely,


Your Settlement.Org team
