Did you know that September is Passport Awareness Month and the US Department of State wants you to have a picture-perfect passport? Taking a passport photo isn’t that easy—especially if you have it done by a rookie or try doing it yourself.
In 2015 alone, the US Department of State received more than 200,000 unacceptable passport photos! They warn that “submitting a passport application with a bad photo will delay processing your application and could interfere with planned travel.” So how do you take a perfect passport photo? Follow the US Department of State’s advice. One of their tips is to make sure there is no glare on your glasses and they warn that starting soon, glasses won’t be allowed anymore in passport photos.

In my passport photo I am shown wearing eyeglasses. Since then I had cataract surgery and no longer wear glasses. Will this be an issue? I sure hope it doesn’t mean I have to get a new passport; the one I have is about four years old.
