A Guide for Capturing Student’s Passport Photos
When capturing the student passport photos, ensure you have a good camera (a 20-megapixel camera will be ideal). Follow the procedure below to upload the standard passport photos required by KNEC.
- The passport photo must be coloured and official (use a digital camera as stated)
- The background for the passports can be taken on a cream or grey background (plain backgrounds only, other background colours not stated will be rejected).
- The passport photo captured should have a dimension of 45 mm high x 35 mm wide.
- The candidates should not wear any sunglasses or caps. The face should be visible with the eyes open. (Take your time when handling students with photophobia, or turn the camera light off.)
- Ensure there is adequate lighting and shadows are not visible
- Ensure the student is in a neutral position (either sitting or standing) with a straight face looking directly at the camera.
- Take a single passport photo for every student. Only the student should be visible in the photo alone.
- The passport photo must include the student’s face, neck, and shoulders with the official school uniform.
- You must upload the photo on the same day because only your current passport is required.
- When uploading the passport photos, ensure they are in jpeg format and saved with the candidate’s index number (e.g., 11223344556). It must be 11 digits. Don’t save the passport photos with the student’s name (e.g., Kevin).
- Note that it`s a requirement for every school to submit the passport photos in JPEG format soft copy to KNEC offices.
How to Upload the Passport Size Photos in the KNEC Portal

- Uninterrupted time
When you have the above items, it’s time to begin the procedure.
- Connect your camera or memory card to your laptop or desktop.

- Right-click on the folder with the passports
- Select “Send to”
- Click on the zipped folder
- Log on back to the KNEC portal.
