Q:How many passport photos must I submit with my passport application?
a:Only one photo must be submitted per passport application by mail or in-person.
Q:What type of paper should I print my photos on?
a:Photos must be printed on photo quality paper. The photo quality paper can be either matte or glossy photo paper.
Q:Do my photos have to be in color?
a:Yes, the photos must be in color. Black and white photos will not be accepted.
Q:How recent must my photos be?
a:Your photos must have been taken within 6 months of submitting your application and reflect your current appearance.
Q:What size must my photos be?
a:The photo must be exactly 2 x 2 inches (51 x 51 mm).
Q:What pose should I be in for my photo?
a:Your photo must be a clear shot of your entire face horizontally centered in the photo. Profile shots or photos not in focus will not be accepted. Your photo must be taken against a plain white or off-white background. Your expression should be neutral with both eyes open and directly facing the camera. Photos with unusual expressions and squinting will not be accepted.
Q:How large should my head be in the photo?
a:Your head should be between 1 inch and 1-3/8 inches (between 25 and 35 mm) from the bottom of your chin to the top of your hair. If you are submitting a digital image, then your head should be between 50% and 69% of the image’s total height from the top of the head, including the hair, to the bottom of the chin.
Q:Can eyeglasses be worn for the photo?
a:Eyeglasses worn on a daily basis can be worn for the photo. However, there should be no reflections from the eyeglasses that obscure the eyes. Glare can be avoided with a slight downward tilt of the glasses or by removing the glasses or by turning off the camera flash.
Q:Can I wear sunglasses or tinted glasses in my photo?
a:No, you cannot wear sunglasses or tinted glasses for your photo. If you are applying for a U.S. passport, and you need to wear your prescription glasses that have dark on tinted lenses for medical reasons then they may be worn in your photo. A medical certificate may be required to verify prescription eyewear. If you are applying for a U.S. visa, you may not wear any glasses with dark or tinted lenses for your photo.
Q:Can I wear a hat for the photo?
a:No. Hat and head coverings should be removed for the photo unless it is worn daily for a religious purpose. The full face must be visible in your photo. The head covering should not obscure the hairline and must not cast shadows on the face.
Q:Can I wear a uniform in my photo?
a:Uniforms, clothing that looks like a uniform, and camouflage attire should not be worn in photos except in the case of religious attire that is worn daily. Otherwise, normal clothing that you wear on a daily basis should be worn.
Q:Can a parent or guardian appear in the photo of a child?
a:No, the child must be the only person in the photo. Nothing used to support the child should be in the camera’s frame, including the arms or hands of a parent holding the child.
Q:Is it acceptable for my child’s eyes to be closed in his/her photo?
a:No. Please have your child’s eyes open and looking straight ahead towards the camera.
Q:What’s the best way to take a photo of a baby?
a:Lay your baby on his or her back on a plain white or off-white sheet. This will ensure your baby’s head is supported and provide a plain background for the photo. Make certain there are no shadows on your baby’s face, especially if you take a picture from above with the baby lying down. You can also cover a car seat with a plain white or off-white sheet and take a picture of your child in the car seat. This will also ensure your baby’s head is supported.
Q:May photos be taken with a digital camera?
a:Yes, you can use a digital camera. Most webcams and mobile phones cannot provide images of sufficient quality.
Q:Can I remove the red-eye from my photo?
a:It is acceptable to use the red-eye reduction option on your digital camera when you are taking the photo. However, you cannot use any photo editing tool to digitally remove the red-eye from your photo. In general, you are not allowed to digitally enhance or alter the photo to change your appearance in any way.
Q:Are photos that are copied from recent driver licenses or other official documents acceptable?
a:Copied or digitally scanned photos of official documents will not be accepted. In addition, photos must not be digitally enhanced or altered to change your appearance in any way.
Q:Are snapshots, magazine photos, mobile photos or photos from vending machine acceptable?
a:No. Snapshots, magazine photos, low-resolution vending machine or mobile phone photos, or full-length photographs are not acceptable.
Q:Do I need to take a new photo if I recently dyed my hair a new color or grew a beard?
a:New photos are only required if your appearance has significantly changed from what is in your photo. Growing a beard or coloring your hair would not constitute a significant change. If you can still be identified from the photo in your current passport or visa application, you do not need to apply for a new passport or submit a new photo for your visa application. However, you may have to apply for a new passport or submit a new photo for your visa application if you have:
Undergone significant facial surgery or trauma
Added or removed numerous/large facial piercings or tattoos
Undergone a significant amount of weight loss or gain
Made a gender transition
The acceptance of your photo is at the discretion of the U.S. passport agency where you apply for a passport or U.S. embassy or consulate where you apply for a visa.
