When completing your passport application, please do not paste your photo. Rather, we highly recommend when using our services, to allow us to mount the photo. Simply paper clip it to the top of your application before you submit your documents to us. If you are applying for a first time passport at any of the Local Passport acceptance facilities, it is best to have the acceptance clerk do it to be sure it is mounted correctly. This involves placing 1 staple in each corner of the photo (total 4 staples) to be done in such a way as to not interfere with the image in any way, or make any unnecessary holes in the photo or application form.
