Online USCIS passport photo handbook

As biometric photos for quick and easy identification, photos for USCIS have the same requirements as the US passport. However, having an overall review of the specific rules can avoid potential barriers when you are applying for U.S. citizenship. Here are some requirements for USCIS passport photos:

1.2 x 2 inch biometric photo in color

2.The photos should be taken within 6 months, which shows your current appearance

3.A photo with a light background (white or off-white)

4.No shadows and coverings on your face

5.Meet the technical requirements of US passport photos

6.The head height should be 1.29inches and the bottom of the photo to the Eye Line should be 1.18 inches

7.Can be submitted online

8.Can be printed

USCIS Photo Size and dimensions

The size and dimension might be one of the tricky problems for you to get your USCIS photos. As we have mentioned above, the size should be 2 x 2 inches (51mmx51mm) with the head between 1 inch to 1 3/8 inch (22 mm to 35 mm) or 50% to 69% of the total height of the image from the bottom of the chin to the top of the head.

However, there is no need for you to worry about the size and dimensions if you purchase our service because we will do the photo cropping for you, ensuring that your photos will meet the size requirement of USCIS photos.

Head position

You are required to face the camera directly with a full view. Nothing should cover your face in the photo. Your head should be visible, including hair, neck, and upper shoulders. If you are not sure whether you can meet the demands, just use the AI-photo to help you make adjustments to the head position. Thanks to the smart way, you will find it fast and effective for you to have a proper head position in your USCIS photos.


The background for USCIS photos should be in a light color like white or off-white. Usually, the photo studios will arrange everything perfectly for you. However, sometimes you want to take photos by yourself and print them in the photo stores on the ground of saving money. The obstacle lies in hardship to find a suitable background. Here, AI-photo, as the background remover and changer can do you a big favor. The background can be removed and replaced within a few clicks via passport photo software.  


In fact, no specialized requirements are formulated for USCIS photos. But uniforms or military clothing are not allowed in the photo. To pass the compliance test, you’d better wear daily neat clothes, which enables you to look elegant. However, you’d better not choose the white shirts that may blend in with the background.


Accessories like hats, caps, and glasses shouldn’t appear in USCIS passport photos. If you have to wear accessories for medical and religious reasons, you should have a document submitted. The proof should be a statement from your religious community or your doctor. At the same time, even if you have been allowed to wear the accessories, you are not allowed to cover any part of your face with the accessories. Otherwise, you might be rejected.


You should make sure that your face is equally lightened. Check whether there are shadows in the photos. Also, you should ensure that your photos won’t be underexposed or overexposed and there will be a sharp comparison between the background and the object.

Quality of the USCIS photos

Being rejected can be time and money-consuming. Therefore, you should have a careful check before you submit your photos. You must make sure that your photos should be printed on matte or glossy high-quality photo paper instead of damaged or worn-out paper. You can seek help from photo stores after you have downloaded the digital version of your photos. 

Say no to some common mistakes while taking photos for USCIS

As the photos can be a key factor in your application for U.S citizenship. We are here to help you detect some common mistakes while taking USCIS photos. Just have a double-check:
