United States Passport Photo Requirements

United States Passport Photo Requirements; these deviate from the Dutch standard passport photo format. Depending on your passport, green card, USCIS (INS) or visa application, the relevant agency 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.

Cost of passport photo, visa photo or green card photo for the United States

For America you can have photos taken from as little as € 15 and you will receive 4 photos or 1 digital version.
If you want a print and the digital version, € 5 will be added. Of course we cut the photos neatly to size for you and we ensure that they come in a neat suitcase so that you can easily take them with you.
You can walk in without an appointment at Hugo de Grootplein 17 in Amsterdam. Your photos are in principle ready immediately.

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.
