Taking a photo for your passport can be faster and easier than you think. Especially since all you need is your iPhone. How is that possible? All you need to do is to use our software – which is online and doesn’t require downloading an iPhone app. Just take a selfie or ask somebody to take a picture of you with your iPhone. Then upload it on this page, get the result and press ‘download’. That’s basically all you need to know to take a proper passport photo with an iPhone. Thanks to our app, it will only take you 10 minutes.
There are special requirements to take a passport photo using iPhone or any other device. Their list is published on the government website of the Department of State. Fortunately, proper preparation and our Passport Photo Editor for iPhone will guide you through the process successfully. These include proper body positioning, lighting, photo background, and facial expressions. However, taking a passport photo with an iPhone requires other things that need to be considered. How to dress, what makeup to do, what can and cannot be worn - it all matters.
Our software will fix some issues (e.g. it will clear the background) with the photo, however, according to the US Department of State there are some specific passport requirements the photo has to meet:
Remember that when applying, you must provide one passport photo. It must not be older than 6 months and, when printed, it must be 2 × 2″ (5 × 5 cm). It is essential that, when viewed vertically, the head in the photo is between 1″ to 1 3/8″ (2.5 to 3.5 cm). Also, make sure the background of your photo is white, blank, and clean.
Your iPhone/iPad camera is good enough to make a high resolution photo. Then, our App will automatically crop it to the right size, which is 2x2inch for paper printout or 600x600 px for digital submission.
If you prefer taking your own passport photo with your iPhone, don't worry about meeting the formal guidelines. Our online passport size photo maker can guide you through the process step by step to ensure that you get the perfect photo that meets all the requirements.
While there are no formal obstacles to wearing something eccentric, even if it's a photo for your passport, you need to be careful with your dress code. What to put on taking a passport photo with iPhone? Wear casual but neat clothes and don't reveal too much skin. Avoid black and white clothes that may blend in with the background on one side and disrupt the composition of the photo on the other.
You should remove any jewelry. You cannot wear glasses and hair accessories either - decorative hairpins and headbands are not allowed. Make-up should be subtle, but at the same time reflect your everyday look. The point is that there will be no problem identifying you during passport control.
The DIY passport photo taken at home must be properly exposed. It should not be too light or too dark. Flat and even daylight that illuminates the entire face and does not create too contrasting shadows is best. How to do it? Stand in front of the open window in the daylight - this way you will get the natural light of the photo, thanks to which it will be accepted by the US Department of State.
You must stand straight in front of the iPhone. If you’re not able to do so, ask someone for help. You have to keep your head perfectly straight and look directly at the camera. Do not smile or frown and do not squint your eyes. Also keep your mouth closed.
Background must be entirely white and clean. We know that it’s hard to find a clean white wall in a house and much more difficult – a professional white roll-up. That’s why our tool removes background automatically when the shot is ready and uploaded.
As you probably know a green card or US Visa Photo has the same standard size - 2x2 inches. It means that you can use your US passport photo for other official documents. You can also choose other documents in menu above - for example:
