US Passport and Visa photo specifications

You don't need to worry about these specifications too much. If you're coming to our studio, we take care of all of these requirements. If you upload your images, we will ensure that they meet the requirements. You only need to follow these rules when taking your own pictures:
  • Background should be a plain, light wall or sheet (we will convert it to the required white or off-white).
  • Spectacles should not be worn if the frames are small or the lenses reflect the flash light.
  • Hats, scarves and other head gear can only be worn for religious reasons and should not obscure any part of the face.
  • A neutral expression is required with the mouth closed.
American passport and visa photos have the same specs, though in the case of visas, we will send the image file to you via email as you may need it for online application forms such as the ds-160 etc....
