"The passport photos submitted are not acceptable." - U.S. Passport Renewal

Post by funnyinterestingcool » Mon Dec 23, 2019 3:48 pm

Sent in my Passport for renewal will all requirements and they said the photos were not acceptable. It was $14 to ship USPS priority from our location and they didn't provide a return label. Money down the drain. After seeing the photo I submitted on the form returned to me, it looks like it was short about 1" after the staple moved it in the mail, but I am not sure. The photo otherwise fit the description. I will be following up with them. The letter reads:
