People May Need a Passport to Fly Domestic: Passport Photos

Passport Photos: Los Angeles Over the Christmas season, the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) quietly announced that by 2016, all domestic air travel will require either a traditional passport or a federally-compliant ID card called “Real ID.” State driver’s licenses will no longer allow Americans access to domestic flights, as they do now. Passport photos must adhere to U.S department of state standards. This new development may make people a little uncomfortable. Some people compare it to Nazi Germany or apartheid South Africa, where their movement is being closely monitored. To other people, it comes as a welcomed development, making travel feel a little safer. There are specific regulations when it comes to applying for a passport. The processing of your passport application may be delayed if you do not submit a photo that meets the Transportation Security Administration requirements.  To avoid processing delays, it is recommended that you use a professional passport photo service. Using a service such as Printing Fly in Los Angeles can make the process go a lot smoother. There are many specifications that the photo must adhere to, so getting it done professionally is a smart option. The TSA will accept $55 passport cards and $135 passport books as valid ID.
