All About Passport Pictures

Passport Pictures

Passport pictures are one of the most essential aspects of a passport. The passport photo allows the passport to be associated with a specific individual. If not for the passport photos, it might be possible for individuals to assume another person's passport, since the textual descriptions included in a passport near the passport photo is very vague. Beside the passport picture, the only information included inside the passport is the person's date of birth, name, address.

Passport photos replicate many of the written pieces of information about the person that is listed in the person's driver's license. A passport photo will allow an official to determine the individual's eye and hair color.

Officially, passport pictures must be updated very infrequently, although an individual may want to update their passport photo when they get a new passport if their appearance has changed drastically since the last time they applied for or renewed their passport.

A passport photo is often taken by a professional, so that the person applying for a passport can make sure that not only is their passport photo the proper size, but also meets all the other requirements in order to be considered a valid passport photo.
