Customer Feedback/Reviews of
our Passport Photo Service
Thank you so much.
I was in need of German passport pictures and unable to find a
place that could provide them to me. I found you online and after
a few promptly answered questions, less than 2 hours after placing
the order the pictures were available to me. You took a big worry
off my mind and I would recommend your services to anyone needing
passport pictures. The service was fast, convenient and superb

Switzerland PASSPORT PHOTOS F O R M A T
Passport photo must clearly show the person's facial features from
the bottom of the chin to the crown (the top of the head, not the top
of the hair) as well as the left and right sides of the face.
The face must take up 70%- 80% of the Swiss Passport picture. This corresponds
to a height of 29-34 mm.
Because it is often difficult to determine where the top of the head
would be without hair, photos should be rejected only if the face measures
less than 27mm or more than 40mm. In the case of voluminous hairstyles,
the entire head (including hair) must be visible without reducing the
size of the face, if possible. The face must be centred in the photo.
IMPORTANT- There distance
from top of head/hair to the top of photo must be around 5mm.
