Photo services

Need a photo for your passport or visa application, OPT application or work permit? We can take care of your photo needs. Photo services are available on a walk-in basis during regular business hours.

Our photo set-up is designed to print and cut out standard two-inch-by-two-inch U.S. passport/visa photos. We can print photos of other sizes, but cannot guarantee they will meet non-U.S. requirements. If you need a non-U.S. passport/visa photo, bring the specific requirements with you and note the retake policy listed below.

  • Meets requirements for U.S. passport, visa and work authorization applications
  • $10 per set of two printed photos
Non-U.S. passport/visa printed photo
  • You must provide the specific requirements for the photo you need
  • $10 per set of printed photos (quantity varies based on image size)
