    Hi

    My hubby's passsport is expiring very soon and so we need to renew it.As per the requirement the photo dimensions are 3.5 cm x 3.5 cm. how do we take a picture according to this dimension in the US? I went to walgreens and walmart yesterday but they said they only have the standard US passport size which is 2x2 inch. Anybody had similar experience? Pl advise.

    Shouldn't be any different that regular passport size. For all of our Indian embassy needs I have taken passport size photo from Costco, Wal-mart etc.

    Dont worry, go ahead with 2" X 2" photos. Better don't cut the edges. The application mentiones 3.5 cm X 3.5 cm coz thatz the standard passport photo size in India, and the application form is common globally. Here you may use 2"X2" size. And its better to have white background for the photograph.
