How to print passport photos at CVS

Printing passport photos at CVS is easy and cheap if you prepare a printable passport photo template online and get it printed in the store. First, prepare the digital passport photo template, easily done through our website. Upload a photo to see a preview of your ready-to-print passport photo 3 seconds later. You can then either save your printable photo template on a USB drive or use the CVS mobile app to print it in the closest CVS store. The photo template you prepared should be printed as a 4 x 6 inch (10 x 15 cm) photo. In the template, you will find two passport size photos, each of the dimensions of 2x2 inches, that you can then cut out. The photos can of course be used for your United States passport application, but also for any other official document application that requires 2 x 2 inch size biometric photos.

Before printing a passport photo at CVS

Our 4 x 6 inch passport photo template generator means you don’t need to worry about official passport photo requirements, such as framing the photo to the correct size. Nevertheless, you need to be aware of the general U.S. passport photo requirements concerning among others your clothing and posture. Follow our guide and get your photos accepted at the first try!

Important CVS passport photo requirements:

  • Maintain a neutral facial expression (no smiling or frowning).
  • Keep your head straight and look at the camera.
  • Don’t take a photo in a uniform or in extravagant clothes (religious clothing is allowed).
  • Your entire face (forehead and chin) should be visible on the passport photo.
  • Take your picture against the proper background (cream or light gray and uniform).
  • Do not use software or filters to retouch your picture.
  • The passport photo should be recent (not older than 6 months).
  • A photo with headgear (cap, hat etc.) or glasses on will not be accepted.

Take a picture for your passport at home! 

Have you ever thought that you could avoid crowds and waiting lines if you take a picture for your passport at home? In fact, all that is necessary for you to do so is a smartphone and our PhotoAiD app or website.

First take a look at the checklist above and once you are ready, ask a friend or family member to take the picture for you, or use a tripod and a camera with a timer. The distance between you and the camera should be about 3 feet. Try to take advantage of natural light and take your picture standing facing a window in the daytime. Keep your back and neck straight, open your eyes and don't show your teeth. 

Take as many snaps as needed and upload the one you like best to our PhotoAiD app or website.

Three seconds later, you will get a passport image of the right size and with the right background, ready to be printed at the nearest CVS pharmacy or to be sent to your postal address.

CVS opening hours

CVS stores are usually open from 8 am until 8 pm, but depending on the location the opening hours might differ (some CVS pharmacies are even open 24/7). 

PhotoAiD premium mail service

If there is no CVS pharmacy near you or if your schedule is tight, we recommend using our Premium Mail Service to get the 4 x 6 inch printed template shipped directly to your postal address.

Upload a picture to our website or through the PhotoAiD app and you will receive a professional 4 x 6 passport photo template ready to be printed. Then, you can either:

  • Get the digital template for free. 
  • Receive the digital passport photo template with the correct background and a warranty of acceptance by the relevant authorities from one of our human experts for $5.95
  • Receive all of the above + a printed version of your passport photos delivered to your address for $9.95.
