There is no "one size" fit all. As a Dutch citizen living in the USA since 1988, I know first hand how difficult it is to get the correct passport photos and the trouble of going to Washington DC, New York or Pennsylvania to visit the embassy or consulate for your in person appointments. Nothing is more annoying than having your photos rejected after a long drive and time consuming appointment setup. This is one of the reasons I started my international passport photo service, aside of my studio family portraiture.

When it comes to passport photo requirements, among all the countries in the world there are many differences like size (both the outside dimension of the photo as well as the head size) and the background, which usually depends on the persons complexion and/or hair color. Sometimes the purpose of the passport photo also calls for a different background color, for example to differentiate citizenship vs immigrations. Most digital passport photos (for online applications) require a much brighter background than printed passport photos. (for drop-off or mail-in applications)

Although the most common outside dimensions are square 51x51 mm (2x2 inch) and rectangle 35x45 mm (1.4x1.8 inch). Quite a few countries have odd sizes, for example as small as 26x32 mm (1x1.25 inch) for Spain, and as big as 100x150 mm (4x5 inch) for Moldavia. When it comes to head sizes, they vary from 75 to 80% of the photo size, or are specified in a specific millimeter range, as well as the placement of the eyes within a specified area of the photo.

No matter for which country or nationality you are looking for, Passport Photo RVA is familiar with the differences and requirements and guarantee your passport photo to be according their unique specification. I have information and samples listed per continent, which will be updated trough time.
