US Visa and Green card Photo Requirements

As per Passport Photo Guidelines set out by the US Embassy, all photos that you send with your visa application must have been taken within the previous 6 months, depicting each individual passport or green card applicant. It is important to note that no group photos will be accepted.

Each photo printed from Reload Internet will be printed in color on thin photo-quality paper measuring exactly 2 inches by 2 inches and US Visa Photos will not be printed with borders.

Your photos will be in sharp focus showing a clear font view portrait wearing street attire in front of a plain white or off white background. Our Photos will never have dark or patterned backgrounds are these are unacceptable.

Our Canon cameras will ensure that original photo are taken and are accepted by the US Embassy – so Reload will not provide you with copies or digitally scanned photos.

We will ensure that your facial expression in the photo will be natural, with open eyes looking directly ahead with no unusual expressions or squinting. Normal un-exaggerated smiles are acceptable i.e a grimace, with no teeth showing.

Once your photo is printed instore, you will notice your head will be between 1 inch to 1- 3/8 inches from the top of the hair to the chin and will be centered with no head tilt in any direction. It will cover about 50% of the photograph area and we always try to move your hair out of the way so that ears can be seen. Side or angled views are not acceptable so we will not be asking you to assume these positions instore for your Green Card Lottery Passport Photo.

Other US Green Card Lottery Passport Photo Requirements

Only headgear worn daily for religious reasons is acceptable which requires a signed statement from the applicant. Military or airline personnel should not wear hats. Headgear for tribal or national costume is not permitted unless for religious reasons.

Regardless, no item of attire should obscure any part of the face so traditional facemasks or veils are prohibited.

Eyeglasses worn on a daily basis may be worn in the photo however ensure there are no reflections that obscure the applicant’s eyes. Dark or tinted glasses are not permitted unless required for medical reasons, which may require a medical certificate to be accepted.

Any clothing that looks like a uniform or camouflage attire is unacceptable unless it is worn daily for religious reasons.

Digitally reproduced photographs must not show discernable pixels or dot patterns.

Our Cameras instore will always have sufficient resolution of minimum 3.5 megapixels (we use 16 megapixel canon cameras) and these are suitable and printing will be done by professional laboratories to achieve the necessary image quality. Most vending machine prints will not be of sufficient quality and Photocopies of photographs are not acceptable.

Ready to apply for your Green Card Lottery Passport or US Visa

Using a pencil, lightly print the Alien Registration Number (A Number) if applicable on the reverse of the photo. If not applicable, write your full name on the back of the photo as well as the applicant’s signature. Do not enclose the photographs in glassine or other types of envelopes. Only 1 photo per person per application is required however it may be worthwhile keep some extra for future purposes.
