        As of November 1st, 2016, customers applying for or renewing their passport must remove glasses for their passport photo.

        Last year, more than 200,000 passport customers submitted poor quality photos which we couldn't accept. The #1 problem was glasses. We had to put their passport applications on hold because we couldn't clearly identify them from their photo.

        If the photo of you in your unexpired passport has glasses, don't worry about it. You don't have to get a new passport now. Next time you renew your passport, though, you'll have to take your glasses off.

        This policy change helps us and it helps you. We can see you more clearly now and you will experience fewer passport application delays and can move faster through U.S. ports of entry. Don't get us wrong, we love your glasses, but take them off for your passport photo.*

        For more information on passport photos, check out our photo requirements.

        *If you must wear eye glasses for medical reasons, you'll need to obtain and submit a signed statement with your passport application from a medical professional or health practitioner.

        It's for their face recognition database.
        Strange objects or shadows around the eyes disables the face recognition software.

        Try wearing makeup around your eyes (above and below) and they will tell you to remove the makeup.
        Even if the makeup is slightly lighter or darker than fleshtones.
        The face recognition software turns your picture to black and white and draws triangles around your face's features.

        If security is the concern, why not just use biometric data like fingerprints?

        They want to build the database without the public knowing or asking too many questions.
        Also, they can pull your face off security cameras and run it against the face recognition database and ID you without your knowledge.
        Can they pull your fingerprint off a security camera? No.

        Sounds like a violation of my privacy.

        Um, shouldn't reformed nazis like yourself be more congenial and sensitive to people on the internet. You seem pretty hostile and angry given that you claim to be an enlightened liberal.

        to get the NEXUS card you must go through an extensive deep delving of every aspect of your persona by the FBI, CIA, RCMP, CSIS, CES, NSA etc etc etc.

        Because we are living in a country that is more heavily surveilled than north korea. CCTV can't see fingerprints.

        If it gets you thru the lines quicker and you have nothing to hide, what's the problem?

        The TSA stopped and groped my 14 year old white daughter.

        They waved the turban-headed Arab right on through.

        Because you can't take fingerprints from hundreds of feet away with a security camera.
