Frequently Asked Questions


When can I get my picture taken?

Pictures can be taken anytime during our hours of operation at participating Staples locations.

How long does it take?

It takes a minute to take the picture and a few minutes to have it ready. You can be in and out of the store in less than 10 minutes!

What should I wear?

White tops and light coloured tops are not recommended. The passport office requires sufficient contrast between you and the white background. Head coverings except those worn for religious reasons are not allowed. Head coverings should also be dark-coloured to provide sufficient contrast. No hats, ball caps or sunglasses in the hair! Please also avoid large and reflective jewelry and earrings.

Can I wear my glasses?

We do not recommend that you wear eyeglasses for your passport photos. The passport office will reject a photo for the slightest reflection or glare, even on the frame or rim of your eyeglasses.

Do you take baby passport photos?

Yes, we are family friendly! We take passport and visa photos for children and babies. Please allow extra time because taking photos of babies can be challenging.
