Over the years we’ve heard about so many stories where someone went to a drug store or warehouse club store to get their photos done to find out weeks later that their application was denied / rejected because the photo did not follow the correct guidelines set by the authorities!  Let’s face it, lots of people are always asking “where can I get my passport photo taken”  But what they really mean is where can I go get my passport photo taken where I will look like myself and not a mug shot or some DMV photo!  Most passport photo and visa photo rules were changes globally since 9-1-1 and having correct Passport Photos and Visa photos save you time and money and more importantly saves you from problems when applying or renewing!  Let Lucy’s Photo Studio help!

How to Dress for Passport & Visa Photos?

As far as US, Canada and EU countries go, there is no “dress code” for Passport Photos.  However, here are some tips how to dress for passport photo.

  • Avoid white clothes

In general, please avoid white clothes.  Most background being white, if you wear white, it will be blended into the back, resulting only your head looks floating in the air.  These photos could be judged as “not enough contrast against background”, resulting rejection of your Passport and Visa application.

This rule applies to infants and babies.  Please have them dressed with colored clothes.

  • In winter, please avoid turtleneck sweater. It covers your neck and chin.

All counties do not allow to wear earrings and eye glasses.  Let’s keep it simple. 🙂

  • No glasses
  • No earrings

Some counties do not allow eyeglasses, like French Visa and Mexican Passport photos.  UK(Britain) “recommends” not wearing glasses.  Starting November 2016, USA Passport and Visa photos’ requirements changed to not allow glasses worn for the photo.

As a general rule, we strongly recommend NOT to wear glasses.  Governments want to collect your biometric data based on your natural facial information.  You don’t wear the same glasses for other 10 years anyway.  If you are asked, you can just take them off. If you insist wearing them, you must understand that you are taking chances.

  • No hair covering your ears and face (not even your cute eyebrows!).

In most cases, you should show your both ears clearly.
