*Note: Our office does not specifically take Visa photos, but for several countries US passport photos will work just the same. Be sure to check the Visa photo requirements of the country you plan to visit before obtaining US passport photos for your Visa application.
Passport photos have very specific requirements. Please review some of the requirements listed below and be sure to visit travel.state.gov for more information.
- Your head must face the camera directly with full face in view.
- You must have a neutral facial expression or a natural smile, with both eyes open. (We must be able to see the whites of your eyes)
- Taken in clothing normally worn on a daily basis – No uniforms or white shirts
- Taken in the last 6 months
- Use a plain white or off-white background
- Be sized correctly 2 x 2 inches (51 x 51 mm)
- Head must be between 1 -1 3/8 inches (25 – 35 mm) from the bottom of the chin to the top of the head
- Your head, including your hair, must be centered within 25-35 mm of the picture. Therefore, be sure your hair is not in a bun directly on top of your head. This will exceed the photo requirements.
