Passport & Visa Photos, Quick and Easy


Passport, Visa & Immigration Photos. Ready in Minutes

Our Downtown San Diego and North County locations provide U.S. Passport, Visa and Immigration photos, Biometric EU Passport photos, and Digital Imaging for online visa applications. All work is guaranteed, and no appointment necessary. We also photograph Infants and Toddlers.

When preparing to have your photo taken, a couple of things to keep in mind: No Tank-tops, Tube-tops or Sleeveless tops. And Medium-dark colors look best. If you follow these simple rules, we'll make your photo look fantastic.

For Canadian Passports, no white blouses or shirts.

Photo Services

At  A-1 Broadway Foto, we can make most sizes, from 1x1 to 4x6 inches, including the black and white "infantile" photos for Mexican legal documents. We also photograph infants and toddlers, as well as adults. We are proud to provide the San Diego area with a number of photo options, and we also offer fingerprinting services.

Digital Images for Non-Immigrant Visas, Diversity Lottery and More

Diversity Lottery digital images are also available, (600x600 resolution). They are ready in minutes, and emailed to you for immediate upload with your lottery application.

Non-immigrant visa applications, as well as some European passports, now request digital images to be uploaded online, instead of physical photographs. We can provide these also, as well as digital JPEG images for foreign visa applications and job applications. They are available at both of our locations.

If you need head-and-shoulders photographs or digital images for other purposes, such as business cards or brochures, we'll take care of it for you. There is no sitting charge and finished images are usually available the same day.

Retouching services are available, and a selection of poses is also possible. We can send you the image via email or you can take it with you on a flash drive. You may require an appointment for this service, so please call ahead for pricing and appointment details.

BioMetric Passports and Schengen Visa Photos

Our BioMetric passport and Schengen visa photos are made to the exact specifications required, and are ready in minutes. To reach the level of precision required by these documents, it is necessary to go through Photoshop™ and fine-tune all measurements, leaving nothing to chance. We also comply with all requirements for Canadian, European, and Asian passports as well. If you need a photograph that is for a non-passport type document, simply bring in the measurement requirements. We can do almost any document-sized photo.
