Passport-Style Photograph Regulations

To process your application, you are required to provide identical passport-style photographs. Government Agencies have specific regulations regarding the passport photographs. We recommend the following retailers for passport photographs:

Your photographs must be:

  • 2x2 inches in size

  • Identical

  • Taken within the past 6 months, showing current appearance

  • Color or black and white

  • Full face, front view with a plain white or off-white background

  • Between 1 inch and 1 3/8 inches from the bottom of the chin to the top of the head

  • Taken in normal street attire
    - Uniforms should not be worn in photographs except religious attire that is worn daily.
    - Do not wear a hat or headgear that obscures the hair or hairline.
    - If you normally wear prescription glasses, a hearing device, wig or similar articles, they should be worn for your picture.
    - Dark glasses or nonprescription glasses with tinted lenses are not acceptable unless you need them for medical reasons. A medical certificate may be required.
