US Greencard Lottery Photo requirements are quite stringent and now must conform to strict new US regulations including the new internationally agreed biometric standards. We have professional passport photo studios with professional lighting and professional knowledgeable photographers. The format for Greencard photos changes depending on how you are applying for your Greencard. Some people require printed out photos to accompany a postal application. Let us know if this is what you require.
Most people now apply online and a digital photo is required. The requirements and size are listed bellow along with an example photograph. Getting an image of 600 x 600px to be less than 240k is not easy and requires specialist knowledge. We are one of only a handful of studios worldwide who can do this properly .You can send us your photo by email and we will format it to the correct specifications and send it back to you by email. See our Online ordering page for more info on our Greencard Photo service.
We advise you not to take a chance with your Greencard Lottery application. If the submitted photos are incorrect your application for a green card will not be considered and you will never be told this. We guarantee to get your US Greencard Lottery photos right first time which means that your Green card Lottery Application will not be rejected on the grounds of an incorrect photo without you knowing about it. You can pop into our professional passport studios 7 days a week and you don't even need an appointment. The results are ready usually within ten minutes.
The requirements for Green Card baby pictures are quite strict. Babies must have their eyes open, there must be no visible means of support such as parent's hands. The baby must be looking in the direction of the camera - the mouth can be open. See our guide to Baby and Children's Passport Photos. You may also want to have a look at our Unacceptable Passport and Visa Photo page.
If you are concerned about your appearance and need to look your very best in your passport and visa photos then consider having a passport makeover in our studios - this will reduce the look of wrinkles, bags under the eyes and bad skin tone etc.
