No More Eyeglasses for U.S. passport or U.S visa 美国护照或签证申请人的照片不可以戴眼镜

On October 6, 2016, the state department announced that, starting November 1, 2016, all applicants for U.S. passport or visa must remove eyeglasses for their photo. The new policy is aimed to enhance the performance of facial recognition systems and reduced the likelihood of misidentifying the applicants.

Beginning on December 1, 2016, Consular Affairs will no longer accept applicant’s photographs with eyeglasses. The soft enforcement period until November 30, 2016 is quickly ending.

However, if the applicant has a medical condition requiring eyeglasses, exceptions can be made when the applicant submits a signed medical statement.

It is acceptable if the photo in an unexpired passport or visa shows eyeglasses. The new rule only applies to new or renewal applicants.

国务院在2016年10月6日宣布,从2016年11月1日起,所有美国护照或签证申请人的照片不可以戴眼镜。新政策旨在提高面部识别系统的性能,并减少错误识别申请人的可能性。

自2016年12月1日起,领事事务处将不再接受申请人的眼镜照片。到2016年11月30日的软实施期即将结束。

然而,如果申请人具有需要眼镜的医疗条件,则当申请人提交医疗声明时可以进行例外。

如果未过期的护照或签证中的照片显示眼镜,将没有关系。新规则仅适用于新申请人或续签申请人。
