As of November 1, 2016, we will no longer accept passport photos of applicants wearing eyeglasses. Eyeglasses must be removed for passport photos.
Applying for a U.S. passport while outside the United States is a different process from applying for a U.S. passport while inside the United States. Although the application forms, supporting documentation, costs and finished products are the same everywhere, the U.S. embassy has different procedures for submitting and processing your final documents.
