Visa Photos - Re-Applying

Although most people don't need professional photo processing for their passports or visas, there are some who do. If your passport is not accepted for entry to a country that requires an American Visa, you will need an adapter or "chainlink" to get across the border. Or perhaps you're flying into Mexico and want your photo taken there - in which case you would want a" Grounds of Entry" card that states specifically that countries accept American Visa for entry. There are many situations in which it might be a good idea to have your passport and Visa processed by a photo lab. Even though digital photos of biometric fingerprint passports and visa photos are relatively simple, many people still have them professionally taken. This is because they must be processed professionally according to the country-specific guidelines. Why would anyone want their Visa or passport processed by a photoshop?

There are actually two main reasons people request and use a photo processing service besides verifying age and identity. The first is that visa application requirements can be very time consuming and difficult to comply with. Even if you've organized everything correctly - gone through the proper channels, filled out the paperwork properly, etc. You may still need to submit a visa application, which can take several days or even weeks. In these cases, an automated system can quickly and efficiently process a large number of visa photos so that you can rest assured that your application is not only accurate but on schedule.

The second reason why you may want your Visa and/or passport photos professionally processed is because a lot of people want to have photos taken professionally no matter what their purpose is. It can be fun and even flattering to have your passport photos taken by a professional yet. It is common for people who need their passports and Visas to be able use them in different countries. Whether you want your digital photos taken professionally of yourself and/or your family or friends, or you want to use your Visa and passport for business purposes, having your photos professionally processed can make the process much easier.

Computers can scan digital photos and video-based pictures (such as those used to fill out applications for driver's license applications or social security applications) and upload them to the Visa processing centers. The processing center will then compare the scans and determine which one matches the applicant's data best. If the two matches are not close, the application is rejected. It is important to get a high-quality digital photo rather than a generic, old photo.
