  • You must face the camera directly with a neutral expression.
  • The background must be white or off-white.
  • There should not be shadow that blocks the identification of your face clearly.

Dress appropriately:

When you go to have your passport photo taken, it's important to dress appropriately. Wear something that is comfortable and simple, and avoid wearing anything that could obscure your face or make it difficult to take a clear photo.

Have your photo taken:

Once you have found a place to have your photo taken, provide them with the requirements for a U.S. passport photo, which includes the dimensions of 2x2 inches, a white or off-white background, and a neutral facial expression. Most places will have a digital camera and will take your photo while you wait.

Review your photo:

Make sure to check that the photo meets all the requirements before you leave the location.

Pay for your photo:

The cost of a passport photo varies depending on where you have it taken. Typically, you can expect to pay between $10 and $20 for two copies of your photo.
