Each Friday, we feature a reader-submitted tip as our Travel Tip of the Day. This week’s tip comes from reader Scott, who builds on our Travel App of the Week, saying
“I got a pretty good deal on my passport photo last time. Since I don’t have a photo printer at home, I snapped a picture using my iPhone and went to Costco. There, the friendly photo clerk said to submit the photo using the Costco app (free at the app store).
I just stood at the counter and searched for my store, then submitted the photo (I could have done this at home, of course!). It took about 15 minutes for the photo attendant to print out the image. But I got two of them, one of which I re-purposed for my Russian visa application (see below). The cost? A whopping 17 cents!
Another great option for passport and visa photos. Thanks, Scott!

The Friday tip may be a problem for her. I used the same picture for a new passport and a visa and that is apparently a big no no! They delayed my passport and notified me I needed a new picture which I had to get and overnight to them, which was expensive.
