It is important that your passport picture meets the requirements set forth by the U.S. Department of State. For your convenience, and to avoid delays in processing as the result of an improper image, it is strongly recommended that you use a passport photo service for your passport picture.

The following offer passport photo services:

  • CVS
  • FedEx
  • Sam’s Club
  • Walmart

*These photo services are available, but the library does not endorse one over the other. Passport photos must adhere to strict requirements set by the U.S. Department of State. See the U.S. Passports website for more information and examples of acceptable photos.
