Excellent service. Very good software that enhanced our photos . They also did a manual check and had me redo one of the pictures for free. I have only used online passport photos for more than 10 years. This is by far the best tool.


I found the app very useful and easy to use. I was also assisted by the team when needed, it was nice to know that there was someone ready to help. The tool really allowed me to take the passport photos near me! Thanks!


Great service, the team check your passport photo to ensure it meets the criteria, if not they patiently guide you till the photo is acceptable. In our case it took 3 attempts, but there is no extra charge. Highly recommended!

Requirements for passport photos at nearest photo store

Regardless of the place (it could be a local photo store in Austin, any of the passport photo services available in Los Angeles, Walgreens pharmacy in New York, or passport photo booth in Chicago) where the photo is taken, a passport application requires a picture meeting strict US Department State specifications for passport photos. Read carefully instructions below before uploading a picture to make sure your passport application is not denied at passport offices:

  • You should have a neutral facial expression
  • You should directly face the camera with full face in view
  • Wear normal clothing - don't be very extravagant - (religious clothing for passport photos is allowed)
  • You should take the glasses off
  • Photo Size - 600x600px or 2x2 in inches (don't worry we will crop the photo automatically)
  • Clear background

Best passport photos near me

Best photo is the image you look good in. The photographer at the store will not always be patient enough. Typically passport photo services force you to choose from 2 or 3 shots. If you want to look great on your passport photo you'd better take a picture of yourself as many times as you want. After each shot, you'll get a free preview of the cropped photo.

Digital passport photo near me

All you need to create a perfect passport photo is your smartphone and our online photo app. You can do it everywhere and do not need to drive to the nearest store offering passport photo services, wait in line and waste your time.

You don’t need to be worried about photo size, crop, background etc. Let it do our intelligent app which automatically adjusts an uploaded picture to requirements specified for a given document (passport, visa, driver’s licence etc.) You will obtain a template that you can print next time you visit Walgreens, Walmart, CVS Pharmacy or Costco.

Passport photo printing at home

First of all, think if you really need a US passport printout. Remember that you can apply for a passport through the Internet, which is highly recommended. An online U.S. passport application will definitely make the task easier! Don't worry if you don't have a printer - there are plenty of local printing services near you. No matter if you are in Boston, Los Angeles or Washington DC, you can always find a Walgreens, Walmart, CVS Pharmacy or Costco where you can print a passport photo. One thing you have to remember is that you should print the passport photo template as a 4x6 inch postcard. The cost will be very low (about 40c). 

Premium mail photo service

Green Card Photo / US visa photo near me

In main U.S. cities such as Phoenix, Austin, Houston, El Paso, Dallas or Sacramento there are many people who have to provide a picture for their Green Card as not only a passport application requires to hand in a picture. As you probably know, Green Card and US visa photos have the same standard size - 2x2 inches, and that means you can use your US passport photo for other official documents such as:

  • Driver’s licence (depends on state)
  • China visa photo (33 by 48 mm)
  • Russian visa photo (3,5 cm x 4,5 cm)
  • Canadian visa photo 

If you have time and willingness, you can book a visit in a professional photography studio or take a picture in some stores such as Walmart, CVS Pharmacy or Costco. However, if you are in a rush or want to save your time, why don’t you do this task yourself and let our app do the rest? It is an easy and quick way to get a passport photo even during night or at the weekend.

About the document

The United States passport

A US passport is a travelling document issued by the US Department of State to citizens and nationals of the United States of America. Since the year 2002, all passports in the US are biometric, which means that they are machine-readable documents that comply with international standards. Moreover, a US passport is equipped with an electronic chip in the back cover. This chip stores an image of the photograph of the passport holder, passport data, and personal data of the passport holder; and has the capacity to store additional data if needed.

Types of US passports

There are four types of American passports and each of them is issuable for different holders: 

  • Regular passport (dark blue cover)
  • Service passport (grey cover)
  • Official passport (maroon cover)
  • Diplomatic passport (black cover)

Regular US Passport

The most common is a regular passport issuable to all citizens and non-citizen nationals.

Different types of US passports have different validity. The validity of a regular passport is

  •  for a person aged 16 or over, generally 10 years 
  •  for a person aged 15 and younger, generally 5 years 

An interesting fact is that there is a sub-type of regular passports (so-called no-fee passports) this document is issuable to citizens in specific categories for specified purposes, such as an American sailor to travel aboard a U.S.-flag vessel. This kind of the regular passport must not be used for a purpose other than a specified one.

Application for a US passport

As in every other country, to get a new U.S. passport , an application is required. This application may be made on the US territory or abroad - in such a case is forwarded by a US embassy or consulate to passport services. A candidate must provide the following documents to issue a new passport:

  • in-state valid photo ID
  • birth certificate or naturalization certificate
  • passport-style photo meeting the requirements
  • fee payment slip if needed

Fees can vary depending on whether an applicant is under the age of 16, and some other factors.

You may apply for the passport in person or online, but this is mandatory if:

  • you are applying for your first U.S. passport
  • you are under age 16
  • your previous U.S. passport was issued when you were under age 16
  • your previous U.S. passport was lost, stolen, or damaged
  • your previous U.S. passport was issued more than 15 years ago

Dual citizenship

Many countries permit dual citizenship and the US is among them. It means that it is permissible to have and use two passports issued by two different countries. However, U.S. citizens are required to use only a US passport when they leave or enter the United States.
