US passport or visa: no glasses allowed. Generally you should avoid wearing glasses while making a photo. If you cannot do without them, make sure they are not dark or tinted and that there are no glares on them. Eyes must be fully visible.
Your hair should not cover the face, especially eyes, and for some kinds of documents even your ears should be visible. Avoid voluminous hairstyle and wearing earrings.
The camera should be put about 5-7 feet (1.5-2 meters) from the face. Make sure to include the person's upper body and shoulders into the frame. The head and hair should be fully visible. Take several pictures slightly changing the distance.
The person must be looking straight at the camera. Facial expression must be neutral (no smiling or frowning), mouth closed, and eyes fully visible.
