Reddam Pharmacy is one of the very few places that are able to give you an electronic photo that you may upload onto your DS-160 United States Visa application form and know that it will upload successfully.

Please note that a successful upload of a photo does not guarantee that your photo is 100% correct. We often have Visa applicants who come to us from the embassy on the day of their respective appointments, who have uploaded photos taken by themselves or elsewhere and are required by the embassy to redo photos, even though their photos uploaded successfully.

We know the Embassy's requirements and understand that the photo undergoes a few more quality checks at the time of the appointment, thus we will ensure that you get this stage of the process "right the first time"

Due to our experience and knowledge in this field we are able to guarantee that our photos will be accepted.If your  you come in to us or your online order for Visa photos gets rejected we will refund the cost AND provide a replacement set of photos FOR FREE .

  • Note that this is a guidline, you may consult the official guidelines for the United States for further information

    Tips for taking pictures of a baby

  • The passport photo should be a good likeness of the baby
  • Babies do not need a neutral expression in passport photos
  • The head of the baby does not need to be straight
  • The colour of the eyes should be clearly visible in baby passport photos
  • There should be no supporting hands  visible
  • baby does not need to look straight into the camera
