CVS Pharmacy Passport Photo - All You Need to Know

With its extensive network of over 9,000 stores across the United States, CVS Pharmacy has been providing American citizens with passport photos for some time.

Chances are, your nearest store offers US passport pictures as many locations provide this service—they’re even open late to boot. 

Passport photos at CVS—service information

CVS will snap, process, and print your passport photo in-store—usually in under an hour (provided there’s no line). 

The pharmacy retailer also guarantees all CVS passport photos adhere to official requirements mandated by the US State Department. CVS offers a full refund if your photos get rejected by US passport agents (with proof of purchase).

No appointment and extended business hours 

Most CVS locations keep extended business hours, with some even open around the clock.

On average, pharmacy and photo services are accessible between 9:00 am–9:00 pm, providing customers with ample opportunity to pop in and have their passport photo taken. 

No appointment for passport photos is necessary.

Digital passport photo availability at CVS

Since CVS only offers physical prints, customers looking for digital passport photos will need to look elsewhere for compliant soft copy photos. 

One viable alternative is Passport Photo Online which provides users with digital passport photos.

Best of all, customers can print their digital photos out at CVS with a 4x6” passport photo template—this way, you can get both digital and physical prints for up to 15% off the retail price of CVS passport photos.

Online options and delivery

CVS' passport photo service is only available in-store—with no possibility of ordering passport pictures via its mobile application or official website.

This also means it’s impossible to get passport photos delivered since you have to visit a location to get your photo taken. 

Luckily, the processing times are quite fast if there’s no line of people waiting to get passport photos done. 

If you want to order and print your passport photos online without trekking to CVS, you can download our Passport Photo Booth App for iOS or Passport Photo Maker App for Android and get passport photos delivered to your door. All with guaranteed compliance or double your money back.

How much does it cost to take a passport photo at CVS?

At CVS, you can get two US passport-sized photos for $19.95, comparable to market players like Walgreens, known for their reliable and affordable Walgreens passport photos.

Where to get passport photos at CVS?

To locate a CVS near you, simply type “CVS passport photo near me” into your favorite search engine or visit the store locator page on CVS’ official website.

Just remember to click on the “Filters” button and apply the “Photo & Passport Photo” filter under the “Convenience” tab.
