New U.S. Passport and Visa Policy On Eyeglasses

Posted on October 16th, 2016

Considering renewing your U.S. passport?  Are you an H-1B holder set to obtain your U.S. visa in the coming months?  If you wear glasses, you’ll need to remove them for any U.S. visas or passport applications after November 1, 2016.  The Department of State announced it will now require all U.S. visa applicants and passport applicants to remove their glasses for their photographs.  Individuals wearing glasses in their current passports and visa applications will still have their visas and passports accepted until their expiration date.
