Passport and Visa Photos

One-stop service! Get your passport photo taken when you come in to submit your application. Be aware that the U.S. Department of State has tightened its requirements for photos and is regularly rejecting poor-quality photos. We guarantee our photos will be accepted--or we'll retake them for free.

We also take visa photos that are formatted to fit the specifications of the destination country (including China).

If you need a digital copy, we can send you your photo via email.
