How to take a passport photo in Walgreens

If you need to take a U.S. passport photo, Walgreens photo centers are a common choice. There are more than 7,750 Walgreens stores in the U.S. located all over the country and offering 'one hour or less' passport photo services.

Walgreens passport photo price

The cost of passport-sized photos in Walgreens is $14.99 (as of 2021). You will get two 2x2" printed passport photos without a digital version for this money.

This price is lower than in specialized photo studios (where a similar service costs about $20-25). Walgreens' main competitors offer about the same rates:

The cheapest offline alternative of Walgreens photo services used to be Coscto: they offered one printed passport photo for $4.99 only (that is, $9.98 for a pair). The price was available for all holders of Costco membership. But in February, 2021 Costco closed all its offline photo centers.

However, it is possible to save more than 50% of the cost of passport photos at Walgreens and get a digital version much faster. Online services can help you with this.

How to get cheap passport photos quickly?

With the advent of modern camera phones, the need for professional photo services has significantly decreased. You can take a high-quality portrait from the comfort of your home and then just print it at Walgreens printing services or simply use a digital version if you apply online. This approach will save you both time and money.

The advantage of this method is not only the price, but also the quality of the result. Walgreens and its alternatives provide quick services. You won't be photographed many times in a row if you don't like yourself in the pictures. But you should approach this issue responsibly: after all, the photo will accompany you for the entire validity period of your passport.

To get a passport photo on your own, all you need is to take a photo at home (see our guidelines) and then upload it to Visafoto.com. The service will process the photo so that it fully matches U.S. passport photo requirements. It will adjust such important parameters as:

Take an image with a smartphone or camera against any background, upload it here and instantly get a professional photo for your visa, passport or ID.
