Can you wear a toupee in a passport photo?


In your passport photo, you can wear glasses, so can you wear a toupee? If not, would I have to remove it when showing my passport?

Answer: You are allowed to wear a toupee, if it’s part of what you would normally wear. Some people are go bald after their passport photo is taken, so we often see bald men with passport photos where they have a full head of hair! They are never asked to take them off at passport control.
