Passport photo-taking tips
Follow these guidelines to create the perfect passport picture.
Consider the distance
Keep your front-facing camera 16–20 inch (40–50 cm) away from the face. For rear cameras, keep a 4–6 foot (1–2 meter) distance.
Keep your head and body straight
Look directly into the camera and avoid tilting your body. Remember, portrait mode is unacceptable for passport photos.
Prepare good lighting
Take your passport photos in a daylight setting, like near a window on a sunny day. Shadows on your face or in the background are not permitted.

Here you will find out more about the USPS passport photo service and how it works. In addition, you will find information about pricing and which post office locations take passport pictures.
Does the USPS take passport photos?
Yes, most post offices that process passport applications will have passport photo service on site. You can have your pictures taken separately or right before turning in your application form. USPS staff will take the passport photo and send it to the State Department with the rest of your supporting materials.
Not all USPS locations have a US passport photo service—before going, remember to check if your local post office has what you need.
Where can I get USPS passport pictures?
Many post office locations in the US offer a passport photo service. To find the nearest one, you can use the USPS PO Locator. Just enter your city and state name, pick the kind of USPS facility you need, and the maximum distance from your location.
From here, you can filter the offices by services provided and find all USPS passport photo locations near you. Alternatively, you can contact your local post office directly and ask about the services they offer.
How much does a USPS passport photo cost?
USPS facilities charge $15 to take passport photos. This price includes a set of two 2x2” passport pictures. The service only provides printed copies.
Can the USPS print a photo?
USPS locations that take passport photos will have staff on-site to snap and print the pictures. However, there is no separate printing service, so customers cannot bring in their own pictures and have them printed at the post office.
Can I get digital passport photos at the USPS?
No, digital passport photos are not part of the USPS’ photography service, they only provide hard copies.
With our app, you can take passport photos at home and immediately get a digital copy via email.
Does the USPS require an appointment for passport photos?
Yes, in most cases, you’ll have to book an appointment to get a USPS passport photo. However, some post offices accept walk-ins for passport picture and processing services.
To make an appointment at USPS, go to their website and select the booking tool. After inputting your information in the form, the platform will return a list of available times according to your preferences.
How long does it take to get a USPS passport photo?
The time will vary depending on how busy the post office is. Snapping the passport picture will only take a few minutes, but considering possible lines and the time necessary to print and check the pictures, the whole process can last as long as 30 minutes.
