Passport Photo Template - All You Need to Know

Get a passport picture template

The most popular passport photo sizes include 2x2 inches (51x51 mm) and 35x45 mm. However, dimensions are only part of it; applicants must also pay attention to the height of their head and eyes and their general position in the passport picture.

Fortunately, many tools available to passport applicants can help them create their passport images. Not all of them are equipped enough to deliver precise results though, and some require the applicant’s effort and knowledge of passport photo requirements.

We want to take the weight off your shoulders and propose a hassle-free, time-saving solution supported by a 100% compliance guarantee: Passport Photo Online!

U.S. passport photo template

U.S. citizens who want to apply for a passport must follow strict criteria regarding their passport pictures. These are:

  • 2x2 inches (51x51 mm) in size
  • 1 inch to 1-3/8 inches (25 - 35 mm) for the head’s height
  • 1-1/8 to 1-3/8 inches (28 - 35 mm) for the eye height.

For a digital U.S. passport photo, that American citizens can already submit thanks to a government pilot program, the following apply:

  • square aspect ratio
  • min. 600x600 and max. 1200x1200 pixels
  • 50-69% of the image must be for the head’s height;
  • 56-69% of the image must be for the eyes’ height.

We know that following technical requirements might take time and energy, especially when the photograph must follow the sizes specified to small fractions. Here’s where Passport Photo Online comes in handy.
