At what age does a child need a photo for their B permit?

Mine were babies with their first permits and they didn't need photos for them then but I don't know if they will need them now for the renewals.

Re: At what age does a child need a photo for their B permit?

If they were 5 year permits then I suspect that they will need photos on them when they come up for renewal but I'm not 100% certain.
Our son was 10 when we moved here and he certainly needed a photo for his.

Non-EU biometric permit needs photo straight away - our daughter had hers taken at <1 month old.....
And despite the permit needing renewing every year, the biometric data stays there for 5 years, so she is stuck with her baby photo for a long time yet! (asked if we could get a newer one at the last permit renewal and was told no).

For our 5-year B permits both kids needed pictures. They are 1.5 and 4.5 years old.

Our baby got his permit while he was three weeks old and picture was required. In Zurich migration office for biometric data they even had special equipment to take baby picture in their photo booths and it was so fun. He did not have to look in to the camera though that could have been a problem.

I've just checked the permit itself and seen there is a stamp where the photo should be and it said a photo was required when the child is 2 years old. Guess it varies from Canton to Canton - we're in Ticino.

My daughter didn't have one on her first permit but has one on her renewal at 2 years old.
