Why Can't I Smile in my Passport Photo?
Why do I have to remove my Eye Glasses?

It's official. As of November 1, 2016, no eyeglasses are allowed in US passport photos.

The International Civil Aviation Organization recommends that passport photos be taken with a neutral expression
with no eye glasses for use with Digital Facial Recognition Systems - advanced technology that
helps prevent fraud by electronically verifying identity based on each person's unique facial features.
If you smile or wear eye glasses, your facial data will be distorted which will increase your chance to be pulled off
a line at an airport for "personal ID check" in a private room.

Clothing for Passport Photos

US, Canada or EU countries have no written "dress code" for Passport or Visa Photos.
However, here are some tips on what to wear for Passport Photo or Visa Photos..
In general, cover your shoulders, no white clothing and no big earrings.

Some countries are very particular about your clothing.
If you are taking passport photos for the following countries, you must check application.
Jamaica, Hong Kong, Philippines, Iran( women only) and Saudi Arabia( women only).


Please Avoid white clothes
White clothes should be avoided.
These photos will be rejected because " There is not sufficient contrast against background" for Passport or Visa applications.
Remember that they will collect your biometric data by scanning your photos - if the machine cannot get enough contrast of your head and shoulders against background, your Passport or Visa applications will be rejected.

Avoid turtleneck sweater.
To collect your facial Biometric data, your neck should be clear.


Cover your shoulders
Please cover your shoulders. You look almost naked in Passport or Visa photos.
Bringing a shawl to cover your shoulders would be a gracious idea.


No big earrings.
Some counties do not allow to wear earrings (like Philippines and US Green Card photos).
Let's keep it simple.


No glasses
Some counties do not allow eyeglasses, like French Visa and Mexican Passport photos.
UK(Britain) "recommends" not wearing glasses.

It's official. As of November 1, 2016, no eyeglasses are allowed in US passport photos.

No glasses in US Visa photos as of November 1, 2006.


Tattoos, Beard, Hair Dye, Gender Transition

, new photos are only required if your appearance has significantly changed from
what is in your passport or visa photo.
It is not necessary to submit new photos when:
Dyed your hair to new color
Grow a beard
You might need to submit new photos when:
Undergone significant facial surgery or trauma
Added or removed numerous/large facial piercing or tattoos
Undergone a significant amount of weight loss or gain

That's why many immigration lawyers are recommending us, here in New York City.

(about us, appointment, etc.).

Unwritten rules on Green Card photos - Both Ears shown. No earrings. No smile. No eyeglasses.
There is nothing clearly written on the US Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) web site about Ears, Earrings or Smiling.
However, we've seen many photos rejected simply because the ears are not shown or the person is smiling.
This is particularly the case for Green Card and US Citizenship application processes.
It seems that in real world the US Citizenship and Immigration Services wants photos
with your both ears shown, no earnings or no smiling.
Why take chances?
The purpose of the photo is to get your US Visa or US Immigration process achieved promptly.
Just let your both ears shown, take off your earrings and no smiling and you are just fine.
By the same token, we strongly recommend that you would take your eyeglasses off..
Yes, the rule says that you could wear eyeglasses, as long as your eyes are clearly visible and
no reflections from the lenses nor frames.
But HOW clear is CLEAR to US immigration officers?
Without eyeglasses, your US Immigration or US Visa process will go smoothly with no problem.
With eyeglasses on , there is a chance that the photo would be rejected.
Why do you take chances here?
In short, let's make your US Visa and US Immigration photos as worry-free as possible.
You can't go wrong with "Both ears shown, no earrings, no smile and no eyeglasses" photos, then why not?

(about us, appointment, etc.).

You need a set of two 2" x 2" photos, white background with space in the margin.

What is the "Space in the margin" of US Citizenship Photos ?

According to the form "",
You must include 2 standard, passport-style, color photographs with your application.
Be sure there is enough white space in the margin of the photographs so you will have room
to sign your full name if your application is approved.
The photographs must also be:
Un mounted and printed on thin paper,
on a white background with a full frontal view of your face;
Taken within 30 days of the date they are sent to USCIS.
You should print your name and a number lightly in pencil on the back of each photograph.

(you will be requested to sign at the US Citizenship office)

1. What do they mean by "there is enough white space in the margin of the photographs"?

-1 On the same page they write " 2 standard, passport-style" photos. -2 The sample photo on the same page is nothing different from regular US passport photos.


So what do they mean by "enough white space"?
Here is the answer we received from a Naturalization Immigration officer.

-1 They need space so the applicant can sign on the photo (see our sample photo). -2 They want space above shoulders, so the signature can be right ON the photo. -3 They are NOT requesting any extra space outside of the image. Bottom line is that as long as you can see enough space for a signature on the photo, it's fine.
Just be careful if you have "big hair" that diminishes this space - brush to the back or tie them up.
It's not about you look pretty with big hair, it's about your application accepted smoothly.


2. How to "print your name and a number lightly in pencil on the back".


The problem is that regular pencil doesn't work well on back side of photo paper.
Here are tips:
1. A Naturalization Immigration Officer told us that using an eraser works with regular pencil.
First, rub a couple of times on the area where you will write, then write with a regular pencil.
2. Or, using a 4B to 6B pencil, also known as "graphite pencil" or "carbon pencil" works on photo paper.
They are available from rag-shop or art supply store.

- We are processing in 4 cm x 5 cm (see below).

Finland's explanations on Finnish Passport Size is confusing.
- It says that regular EU size of 35mm x 45mm is NOT accepted = so it's NOT 35mm x 45mm.
- It says the size MUST BE 36mm x 47mm - .
- But 36mm x 47mm is just a minimum size and bigger is better - it says
" Extra space around the head only makes it easier to scan the photo.
In fact, it can often be useful to leave the edges of the photo intact."
- There is no mentioning as to what exactly outside size they want.

We will give you a set of two photos in 4 cm x 5 cm outside and the head size is 25mm - 35mm.
