Passport and Visa Photo Upload Guidelines

Swift Passport Services can size and print your passport and visa photos for a nominal fee of $15. Before sending your photo, please be sure to follow all of the guidelines below

Passport and Visa Photo Guidelines

  • Photo MUST be taken up against a white wall, with no obstructions such as windows, doors, brick, light fixtures, etc.
  • Photo file needs to be uploaded as a .jpeg or .jpg file. Other file formats cannot be properly formatted
  • Photo should be taken from mid-chest up- leaving room above the top of your head in the picture with BOTH ears showing. 
  • It is better for photo to be taken further back than up close


Ways for Photos to be Rejected

  • No professional "headshots"- please face forward 
  • Scans of photos already printed out
  • Please do not attempt to resize or format the photo in any way
  • Have someone else take the picture of you; please do not send pictures you take of yourself (no selfies) 
  • No eye glasses
