?Effective August 2, 2004, USCIS has changed its requirements for
photographs to a standard passport-style photograph.?
?In accordance with language specified in the Border Security Act of
2003, U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) announced a
change in the photo requirements for all applicants from a
three-quarter face position to a standard, full-frontal face position
to take effect August 2, 2004.

required, all photos of the person must be identical. All photos must meet
the specifications for full-frontal/passport photos.?
