Passport Photos. Can we use copies?

4 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,

My fiance and I are filling out the K1 and we were wondering if we have to submit the actual, original passport photo, or if we could just send a copy. My fiance is currently abroad so it is just easier and cheaper (free) for him to send me a copy of the picture, but im not sure if they want the original version

If your fiance sends you the photo online, you can print it out at a store (must be the correct size, etc).

i would recommend having the photo taken at a photo shop/studio and then having them adjust it for size background etc for US passport.  Usually they can email the file and then your fiance can print it for pickup at a CVS store like this: https://youtu.be/sc9TzJsXSWs

It's fine for your fiancé(e) to send you an image file and have a print created here; that's what we did (she got a picture taken in Russia, emailed me an image file, I uploaded it to Walmart.com and picked it up an hour later).
