Choosing the best passport photo to be accepted by the US State Department prevents your application from getting delayed, costing you potential time and money on the road. TVP’s travel experts will guide you through the process, but you should face the camera head-on with both eyes open (but not too wide). Smiling slightly or keeping a neutral look is essential. In addition, any hats or coverings are not allowed unless specifically noted they are for religious or medical reasons and documentation can be provided. Glasses are no longer allowed to be worn in passport photos, but current passport photos do not need to be replaced for this reason.
The good news is growing a beard or mustache, or dying your hair doesn’t mean you have to go through the process of renewing your passport. However, notable changes to your face like tattoos or piercings can be grounds for immigration rejecting your passport, as can significant weight loss.
No uniforms or any clothing with camouflage may be worn in passport photos. If your appearance has changed according with any of the above conditions, it’s best to play it safe and apply for a new travel document prior to departure.
Choosing to have your passport photos taken at Travel Visa Pro’s LA office not only saves you a trip to the pharmacy, but ensures your photos will be looked over by experts who understand what types of pictures consular offices are sure to accept without delays. Just $20 will get you two photos good for any number of applications. Are you ready to come in and smile for the camera?
