    What should you wear for your passport photo?

    The attire you wear for your passport photo is up to you with the following exceptions:

    The subject's full face must be visible so no hats, uniforms or head covering may be worn--except for religious purposes. This also means hair must not hang down covering any part of the face.

    You cannot wear glasses. If you cannot remove your glasses for medical reasons, please include a signed note from your doctor with application.

    We recommend you do not wear a solid white shirt because it can blend into the background which will also be white. Otherwise you are free to wear whatever you like for your passport photo--t-shirt, blouse, dress, suit-and-tie, etc.
