Default Where to get UK passport photos in US?

Hi - Sorry to Hi-jack this one; but it seems answered...

I was wondering about the flip side of this. How do I get a UK sized photo from within the US when standard US ID photo's are 2"x2" and UK are 35mmx45mm?

I am attempting to renew my UK passport from the US.

Any ideas?

Thanks

Matt Hague

I renewed my UK passport at the Embassy in DC a couple of years ago and they accepted the 2"x2" US-style photos. It wasn't an issue. Usually though, for complete accuracy, I suggest people do their own... digital camera, inkjet printer, and photo paper.

Went to the local AAA office.
Showed the nice lady the glossy hand-out with "how not to stand up", "do not wear a divers helmet", etc which you get from the Embassy and all was just spiffy.
Btw, AAA also have a pretty good deal on forex.

For my German passport renewal, I went to the camera shop half a block away from the consulate in Houston, and they knew exactly what was needed.

plenty of threads on this subject...

but yeah, US passport photo is fine if you renew your passport in a consulate, other wise epassport is the easy way.

Kinko's do passport photos. I got mine done (US Size) and still received my passport within around 3 weeks. (Sent it off end August 09 received back middle of September 09).

Hope this helps.

the documentation that comes with the passport form actually states that if your photos are bigger (ie US standard sizes) DO NOT cut them to size - the passport service will take care of it. so just get regular US passport sizes.

Default Re: Where to get UK passport photos in US?

Can Member MATT HAGUE please tell me what he submitted for his renewal passport photo and whether his photos were accepted by the British Embassy in Washington DC?

I am in a small town in the USA where British passports photos are not available.

I need to get a passport photo urgently but am worried that if I submit 2 American size photos (2" x2") from my local Walgreens, which have not been cut down to the accepted 35 mm x 45 mm British size, they will be rejected and I will lose $224.

Any information about passport photos by anyone else who have had British passport photos accepted by the British Embassy in September and October 2009 would be very helpful.

Thank you.
