I’ve dealt with getting passport photos several times, and it can always feel a bit daunting. You want to make sure it’s technically perfect so it doesn’t get rejected, but you also want to look good in the photo. This is why it’s important to know where to go and what to expect before the big day!
What to Wear to Get a Passport Photo Taken
According to the State Department, your passport photo needs to meet the following criteria:
- Submit a color photo, taken in the last 6 months
- Use a clear image of your face. Do not use filters commonly used on social media.
- Have someone else take your photo. No selfies.
- Take off your eyeglasses for your photo.
- Use a plain white or off-white background.
However, there are some specific rules about what to wear in your photo:
- No glasses.
- Regular clothes (no uniforms or camouflage).
- No hats or headgear unless you get a religious or medical exemption.
- No headphones or devices.
- Jewelry and hair cannot obstruct your face.
Your passport photo will not show much of your clothing, so worry only about what your clothes look like from the chest up.
Where to Go in Oklahoma City for Passport Photos
Here’s where to get OKC passport photos! Remember that while you will get your passport through Oklahoma County, they do not take the photos.
Let’s be honest, you don’t ACTUALLY want to spend an afternoon getting passport photos taken. It’s much easier these days to do it online. Personally I have taken baby passport photos myself and death with them online-only, and it was a dream.
You have a few options for getting them done since there is more than one passport photo online website. You don’t have to worry about finding a specific one that does passport photos online near me because any one that does US passports will work just fine.
The UPS Store Quail Springs
If you really want to have someone help walk you through getting your photo taken, you can schedule an appointment at the UPS Store in OKC at Quail Springs. This is a great option for those who happen to be living or working in that part of town!
You can get your passport photos taken at some CVS Pharmacy locations. Just double-check that the one near you has this service. Select the option for “Photo & Passport Photos” on this map of CVS locations.
Select Tag Agencies
If your family is like ours, we love dealing with our local tag agency more than national corporations. Many tag agencies provide passport photos in OKC. Just call ahead to make sure they do this before heading down!
Southeast Spanish, Inc
If you or a family member want to get an OKC passport photo taken but want Spanish language customer service, you can use Southeast Spanish, Inc. This translation service company also offers passport photos in Central OKC. They can also help with Visa and Immigration documents.
Don’t Forget About Travel Insurance!
Heading out on the road?
Before you leave for your trip make sure you have a valid Travel Insurance Policy because accidents happen on the road. I have used World Nomads when I travel since 2016, and I happily recommend them.
Getting coverage is important whenever you’re more than a hundred miles from home in case of an accident, sickness, theft, etc.
