Digital Photo for US Non-immigrant Visa (DS-160 and DS-1648), or Digital image for Canada Visa

On this page, you can order digital images as well as printed photos for (i) the new online nonimmigrant visa electronic applications: DS-160 and DS-1648, (ii) Canada Visa online application, or (iii) digital image for OCI (Overseas Citizenship of India) online application. These 3 online applications require digital images to be uploaded online with your application. Walgreens, Costco, or CVS photos will not be of any help as they do not offer digital image as per the requirements of US Visa, Canada Visa or OCI. We know the detailed specs for all 3 and we guarantee our images will meet all of their published guidelines. After your order is received, we will email the digital image normally within few hours but 24 hours at most on most business days.
