I thought I'd "make my life easier" & save some $$ by getting it
done in advance & going to a Tico Passport Photo shop (of course I
had to take the time/taxi fare to do that) & guess what - the U.S.
Embassy couldn't use it as it did NOT meet their requirements (2” x 2”
photo with a white background and full front view - even though I told
the photographer I was doing it for a U.S. passport).
I say just
splurge & pay the 1,000-c (UNDER $2) for 2 pictures to have the ease
& get it done PROPERLY while you're waiting for your name to be
