Our shop is located directly across the street from the U.S. Passport Office at the Friendship Station Post Office in Tenleytown. About 10 years ago we started offering instant passport photo processing because we are in such a convenient location. Of course, it also helps that the passport office camera is “out of service” about 90% of the time and people depend on us! (Plus, we’re cheaper!)
The whole process takes about 5 minutes, and you don’t need an appointment. Just walk in.
We also take visa and passport photos for many countries other than the United States. With the push of a button, our equipment sets up for Turkey, Germany, Taiwan, New Zealand, Mexico, China and Russia, just to name a few. It’s actually pretty common for a customer to walk into our shop with a set of photos they took at CVS or some other discount shop after the photos had been rejected by their country’s embassy or consulate. Picture sizes, backgrounds and facial dimension requirements can be different with each application. Sometimes pictures even need to be cut to special sizes. We have all of this information at the shop, but if you bring in your country’s requirements that is helpful too.
