The Malaysian passport isn't just a travel ticket; it's a doorway to global connections and opportunities. The passport photo is a significant element of this document, so it should be flawless.
This guideline will show you how to enable a seamless Malaysian passport application with a perfect picture provided by our passport photo editor, 7ID App.
To be acceptable for a Malaysian passport application, the passport size photo in Malaysia in cm must measure 3,5 × 5. For online applications, the digital photo should be between 100 and 300 KB and have a resolution of 600 dpi. Malaysia passport photo size in pixels must be a minimum of 600 × 600.
The 7ID app offers instant resizing of images to these specifications, or to any other country's passport photo size, after selecting the desired country and document. The 7ID Passport Photo Editor also provides head size and eye line correction according to the document requirements.
Previously, Malaysian passport photos were taken against a blue background, but the criteria now require a plain white background without any shadows or objects.
The 7ID app facilitates this process by changing your photo background to a plain white.Our 7ID tool's unlimited (subscription-based) version works best with photos taken on a light, even background. For photos with varied backgrounds, we recommend our Expert tool.
