Along with your passport application form, you must provide two passport photos which meet the specific requirements. The application could be delayed or rejected if the photos do not fulfil these requirements.
Where to get your passport photo taken?
If you are in the UK, you can go to a Photo-Me booth located within most major supermarkets or some post offices. Alternatively you could to go to a professional photographer.
If you are outside of the UK, we strongly suggest that you go to a professional photographer as public photo booths abroad may have different standards to those used in the UK.
