OnlinePassportPhotos is pleased to announce extension of our revolutionary online Passport Photo services for Russian Passport photos. It is difficult to get non-standard size passport photos taken in the USA. Unless you specifically ask for, most stores will print 2x2 inch US Passport photos for you. However with Online Passport photos, you can easily order passport photos for Russian Passport, 8 Passport Photos for $8.95, delivered directly to your home. Note: You can also get them usually within 24 hours by either selecting an option to pick at your local Walgreens store or by asking us to e-mail passport photos in a 4x6 print format that you can take to any photo lab or store and get printed yourself.
(If you are of Russian origin, please help us and other people from your country by letting us know the correct format for Russian passport photos. Kindly click on this link and let us know if Specs #1 or Specs #2 mentioned below is accurate. Thanks for your time.)
One customer Sergei G has mentioned that the following (Specs #1) are used for Internal Russian Passport and Specs#2 are used for External Russian passport so while ordering, you can mention Internal or External Passport in Special Instructions.#1) Some of the resources on the Internet list following requirements for Russian Passport photos. They are similar to the Passport photo specifications for European Union but a bit different. Russian Passport photos require 5 mm space between top of head and the top of the photo.
The picture size must be 35 mm x 45 mm (1 3/8" x 1 3/4").

This company is terrific to work with! I highly recommend it! I needed 3.5 x 4.5 cm passport photos and quickly learned that most photo places in the US are not able to produce this size photos with adherence to all passport photo guidelines. I turned to the web and came across OnlinePassportphoto.com. It seemed too good to be true - take photos at home, upload or e-mail to the company, pay online and get 8 passport photos in 4x6 pic format that can be saved to the flash drive and printed at any photo printing location. I decided to take a chance and had a wonderful experience. First, I had a question on timing as I needed photos in 12 vs. promised 24 hrs. I e-mailed and got an immediate response telling me that I will be able to get photos in 12 hrs. I followed the instructions, submitted the photos and in less than 12 hrs had perfect passport photos that I printed at CVS. I couldn't believe how easy it was! Not only did I get everything I needed, the responsiveness and commitment to promised results was great! And it is so affordable!
thank you very much. We got pictures yesterday from Walgreens. They look great.
I will recommend you to my friends and will come back soon for more pictures.
Have a great day.

We are not able to find authentic
detailed Russian Visa photo specifications so your best bet is to refer
to your paperwork or visa instructions, or contact the consulate you
are applying to and ask for the size.
Based on our experience, most foreign consulates in the USA (including Indian consulates in the USA, China consulates in the USA, Mexico consulates etc) accept 2x2 inch photos for visitors. Most probably your consulate may be accepting 2x2 inch photos too.
Some Russian Consulates in the USA have asked for 35x45mm sized photos. The best specs for 35x45mm we found are from Consulate General of the Russian Federation in in New York: http://www.ruscon.org/visa_dep_ENG.html
� The photograph must be a full-face view in which the visa applicant is facing the camera directly, with eyes open
� The photograph must have been taken within the last six months
The photo for each visa applicant submitted must measure:
� 35 mm X 45 mm (1 3/8" X 1 3/4") with the head centered in the frame.
� The applicant should not look down or to either side, and the face should cover about 50 percent of the photo area.
� Side or angled views are NOT accepted.
� Lighting should be such that there are no distracting shadows on the face or background
� The photos must be clear, well defined and taken against a plain white or light-colored background
� In general, the applicant's head, including both face and hair, should be shown from the crown of the head to the tip of the chin on top and bottom and from hairline side-to-side.
� Sunglasses or other wear which detracts from the face are not acceptable unless required for medical reasons (an eye patch, for example).
� Group photos are NOT acceptable. As a separate visa is issued to each qualified applicant, a photo of each applicant is required
� Your face must be square to the camera with a neutral expression, neither frowning nor smiling, and with your mouth closed
� Photocopied photographs are NOT accepted.
Attaching the Photo
� Glue the one photograph to the application in the designated space (a double-sided adhesive tape could be used). Do not staple photograph.
� Do not enclose photographs in glassine or other types of envelopes.
Sorry we can't read Russian
language, so if you can download the PDF here and send us detailed specs in English from page 5-6, we would greatly
appreciate it. Also, this will also help prospective visitors who want
to visit Russia.
Decoding the math equations, looks like they want -
* overall photo in 35x45mm in size
*Eye/ear level from bottom is between 23mm and 31mm
* Distance between two ears or width of the face is around 25mm
* Face can not be bigger than 36mm
