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!
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!
You are probably looking for the place where to get a passport photo taken. Good news is that you don't need to go anywhere to get a U.S. passport photo. Just take a selfie or ask someone to take a picture of you with your mobile device. Then, upload it on this website. Thanks to the built-in auto cropping tool and background eraser, you'll get a passport photo in no time. You will be able to download the digital version and a ready-to-print template.
Regardless of place (it could be a local photo store in Austin, passport photo service in Los Angeles, Walgreens pharmacy in New York, or passport photo booth in Chicago) where the photo is taken, it has to meet: strict US Department State specifications for Passport Photos. Read carefully instructions below before uploading a picture:
Best Photo is the photo you look good in. The photographer at the store will not always be patient enough. Typically you have to choose from 2 or 3 shots. If you want to look great on your passport photo you'd better make a selfie and repeat it as many times as you want. After each shot, you'll get a free preview of the cropped photo.
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 anywhere, wait in line and waste your time. Just choose a convenient time, ask somebody for help or use a tripod and check the requirements list. 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.
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. 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). The US passport photo template can be prepared on this page.
You can also order a hardcopy of your US passport photo. Write to us and we will mail it to you the same day. Applicable for all states and territories from New York to Puerto Rico.
On our south border, in main cities like Phoenix, Austin, Houston, El Paso, Dallas or Sacramento there are many people who have to apply for Green Card Photo. As you probably know a Green Card and US Visa Photos have 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 the menu above - for example:
If you have time and willingness, you can book a visit in a professional photography studio or take a picture in some store like Walmart, CVS Pharmacy or Costco. But it demands time and you cannot do it whenever you want. So if you are in a rush or just want to save your time, why don’t you do it yourself and let our app do the rest? It is an easy and quick way to get a passport photo even during night or a weekend. Very few photo points are open on Sunday but on weekends we have more time and energy and - what is not irrelevant - we look better when we have had enough sleep and feel relaxed. So trust the technology, download our app and create your ideal passport photo at any time!

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 capacity to store additional data if needed.
There are four types of American passports and each of them is issuable for different groups of holders. We can mention:
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 for a regular passport is
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 for travel connected with his duties aboard a U.S.-flag vessel. This kind of regular passport must not be used for a purpose other than a specified one.
As in every other country, to get a US passport, an application is needed. 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:
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:
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 territory.
