Passport photo requirements United States

Passport photo requirements United States; these are different from the Dutch standard passport photo format. Depending on your application for passport, green card, USCIS (INS) or visa, the relevant authority may also request a digital version of the photo in addition to the printout. Of course you can purchase both a printed and a digital version from us.

You can have photos taken for America from € 15,- and you will receive 4 photos or 1 digital version.

Adjustment in requirements:

We are aware of the latest developments in the rules and requirements that a country imposes on the passport photo. It is possible that a country decides to adjust the requirements for taking a passport photo. To be on the safe side, always take the form that you get from your consulate with you when you have your passport photo taken. In general, the consulate is the first to receive the new rules. This way you always have an up-to-date photo.
