Can I wear glasses in a passport photo?

No, glasses are not allowed in a US passport photo – neither are prescription glasses or sunglasses unless you have a medical reason that forbids your taking the glasses off. In such a case, a statement by your physician is required.

How to pose for a passport photo?

Sit up or stand up straight, do not hold your head up high, look directly at the camera, and do not blink and shoulders down and back.

Is there a passport photo dress code?

Since a passport is official, consider dressing up for the photo. We recommend smart- casual clothing. Extravagant outfits or uniforms might cause a photo rejection. Religious clothing, however, is allowed, so if your beliefs require a specific outfit, there shouldn’t be any problem.
