US Passport Photo

Postby zzm9980 » Wed, 29 Feb 2012 6:26 pm

Where can I get a US Passport photo? Last time I needed one I was in Vietnam, and due to the non-standard size, had all kinds of troubles... Will most places do the US size here, and know what it is if I just say it's for the US?

I used a place in Parkway parade downstairs, they asked what country passport it was for and they looked it up on their chart, mine wasn't for the US, but they seemed to have it on there!

I suspect most places will have this available, if not then the photo shops (there's two opposite each other) downstairs in Parkway parade near the front entrance do them.

Hope it helps.

Excellent, all I needed to know. I'm sure as long as the shop is aware that some countries use other sizes, I'll have no problem. I just couldn't find a shop in Hanoi that knew this, except the one next to the US Consulate that also conveniently charged 10x what everyone else did. (Still only like S$4 :D)

Tanglin mall (just next to the Us embassy) has a photo place down in the basement they always ask which country is the shot for, I guess they will to US spec ones. When I next get my pint of milk will pop in and ask.
