What our users have to say about us:

The process to upload a picture was super easy, and when one of my kids didn't stand quite right (head slightly rotated, shoulders not quite square with the camera), they emailed me later that night and asked me to send a new photo. I would not have been able to tell that it wouldn't pass muster. The next day I had a replacement photo in my inbox, no extra charge. I've had a photo taken by CVS rejected by the passport office before and it is a complete pain! It takes weeks to hear from them and then you have to go through the whole application process (which for kids under 16 means both parents have to go to the county clerk together in person) and the clock starts over again. These guys saved me a lot of delay and extra effort and they were super friendly and professional about it. Great customer service from half a world away! I will definitely use them next time I need a passport photo.

The quality of the photo was perfect and saved me so much time since I didn’t have to take my 10 months old to a cvs. Plus no risking of being in contact with Covid. I was able to use a photo I already had of him and transform into a passport photo without crying and rustle. Wish I had done that for with my older son Passport photo when he was a baby (It was a nightmare taking a photo at a pharmacy store). Also I ordered the wrong size and they were so understanding and reprinted for me the right size. Also costumer service is so fast replying. Amazing!!!

Great app, had to take passport photos for my infant daughter and this was great. I had them takes at CVS first and they turned out horrible. Took it first time and the photo had some problems so they emailed me very quick and asked to retake it. I did, resend it for free, they responded back within few minutes with upgraded passport photo.

The print size of a CVS passport photo

There’s no need to order a CVS passport photo and pay $16.99 for it! Simply get a 4 x 6 inch template and print it as a postcard for only 39¢. The cost of a postcard size printout is nothing compared to what CVS charges for the passport size photos! All you need to do is to get a 4 x 6 inch template generated using our professional passport photo maker page. After that, you can look for your closest CVS pharmacy location and its opening hours. You can also go to another passport photo printing store. After printing your U.S. passport picture, you just need to cut it out of the template and attach it to your passport application. Don’t forget that the standard passport photo size is 2x2 inches so the printed photos cannot be used for documents that require a photo of different dimensions.

How to print passport photos at CVS

Printing passport photos at CVS is easy, simple and cheap, as long as you don’t use their passport photo taking service. Instead, prepare a printable CVS passport photo online and get it printed in the store in the special passport photo template size.

How to print 2 x 2 photos at CVS?

Firstly, you should prepare the digital passport photo template. You can do this easily on our site. All you have to do is to upload a photo, or take a selfie, and in a moment you will see a preview of your ready-to-print passport photo. The US passport application requires a person to submit the printed photos, but CVS pharmacies will help you do that for just 39 cents. Save your printable photo template on a USB stick or use the CVS mobile app to print it in the closest CVS store. The prepared photo template should be printed as a 4 x 6 inch (10 x 15 cm) photo. On such a photo, you will find two passport size photos, each having the dimensions of 2x2 inches. Once you have the printout of your passport photo template, just cut out the photos. You can use the cut out photos for your United States passport application, but also for any other official document application that requires 2x2 inch printed biometric photos.

CVS passport photo opening hours

Our passport photo editing and cropping tool will prepare a passport photo template for you anytime you want! You just need to print the digital passport photo template at your closest CVS photo department, just make sure you check the opening hours before visiting the store. The standard CVS pharmacy hours are 8-20, but there are locations with different opening hours, or those that work 24h. If you can’t find a CVS pharmacy near you or if your schedule is tight, you can use our Premium Mail Service to get the 4 x 6 inch printed template shipped directly to your address.

How many CVS passport photos can fit on a 4 x 6 template?

The standard high-quality 4 x 6 inch photo template can fit 2 passport photos of 2x2 inch size each. Using such a template will help you get more passport photos printed at a lower price! Our 4 x 6 inch passport photo template is FREE! You can print it at a CVS photo department for only $0.39, while making a standard CVS passport photo costs $16.99 and you only get two photos!

Things to know before taking a CVS passport photo

Our 4 x 6 inch passport photo template generator means you don’t need to worry about official passport photo requirements, such as framing the photo so it’s the correct size. Nevertheless, you need to know some of the U.S. passport photo requirements that refer to objects in the passport photo, clothing and posture. Not taking them into consideration will cause your photo to be rejected. These guidelines are the same for all passport photos. Continue reading to learn more about them.

Important CVS passport photo requirements

  • Make sure you have a neutral facial expression.
  • Don’t take a photo in a uniform or in extravagant clothes. It is also recommended to wear non-light-colored clothes in order to create contrast with the white background.
  • Religious clothing is allowed.
  • Your entire face should be visible on the passport photo.
  • The CVS passport photos should be recent (no older than 6 months).
  • You can’t take a photo with your headphones or glasses on.

CVS visa photo

As mentioned above, most of the official documents issued in the United States require photos of the same size - 2 x 2 inches. The general requirements for the various USA document photos are also the same. It means that the person in the US biometric photo needs to have their eyes open, mouth closed, a neutral face expression and a natural posture. There should not be any objects visible in the background, the lighting needs to be even etc.

The visa document, allowing its holders to stay in the United States, is issued by the US authorities and requires the same 2 x 2 inch biometric photo. It means you can follow the instructions above and get the US visa photo at CVS exactly in the same way, paying just $0.39 for the printout, on which there are going to be 2 identical US visa photos!
