Hence if you are ordering passport photos for Brazil on our website, please click on this link and let us know what size of photos your paperwork/consulate requires you to submit.

Brazilian Consulates in the USA used to require passport photos 2 x 3 inch, but now many of them require 35x45mm or 2x2 inch photos. Due to this change it is important that you clarify the exact dimensions stated in your application. If you forget to do so or aren't sure, we will create 2x2 inch photos by default.

If you want 2x3 inch Brazilian Passport Photos, here are the requirements:

  • Two Identical Passport Size Photos, size 2"x3" (5x7 cm),
  • Color or Black and White for a Brazilian Passport.
  • Photos must have white or a light background
  • Photos must be front view
  • Must have been taken within the past three (3) months.
  • Passport booth instant photos are not accepted

As said earlier, most consulates require 35x45mm sized photos as per EU or Schengen passport photo specs. However New York consulate requires 2x2 inch photos.
