Boots Photo Service Information

  1. Price Range

    Printed Boots passport pictures cost £2.95: have eight 35x45 photos prepared and printed! Pick up your photo prints in any Boots store the same day. As another option, you can take passport pictures in-store for £6+.
  2. Service Availability

    Only a while ago, Boots passport photo booths were shut down for safety reasons—and many are still unavailable today. However, you can still get your passport photo online anytime you need it.
  3. In-Store Printing

    You can’t just print a 35x45 digital picture at Boots, since the online app and kiosks allow you to print 6x4 templates only. Use this professional service to make a passport photo template of this exact size.
  4. UK Rules Compliance

    In Boots, you print without checking (say, you won't know if you're wearing too much makeup for passport photo, etc.). Prepare your portrait in the online service and it will ensure you're up to the UK standards.
  5. When Do Shops Open?

    With most stores, the opening and closing hours range between 9 AM and 6 PM (but may vary slightly; every Sunday is a day off). If you need Boots passport photos urgently, use this page—it will work 24/7.
  6. Time Efficiency

    Although CEWE photostations used in Boots print photos quickly, you’ll still need some time to get to them. In case you’re short on time, use this service to get a digital passport photo online and apply from home.
  7. Photo Quality

    With Boots photostations, the quality of printing may vary. However, if you prepare your digital passport photos here, you won’t have to print them exactly in Boots—you can choose any place you like (e.g. Max Spielmann).
  8. Level of Privacy

    Boots never share your photos or personal data with anyone. The same goes for the online option—neither your original shot nor the ready-made UK passport photo will ever be shared with anyone.

Passport Photos at Boots:
Frequently Asked Questions

  1. Do Boots do passport photos?

    Many branches of the UK-wide pharmacy chain do have photo booths installed at their premises. However, most of these were shut down a couple of years ago for safety reasons.
    We don’t recommend going to a random branch in case you need to use a Boots passport photo booth. After all, it may still be out of operation, so it’s always better to phone ahead and make sure.
    Here’s a short instruction for the Boots store locator tool. It’ll help you find the address and the phone number of the store you want to visit to take or print passport photos:

    1. Access (the official website of the chain)
    2. Click the Find a store button located at the upper left (near the logo)
    3. On the next page, enter your postcode or the name of the store and click Find (alternatively, you can allow access to your location to find Boots passport photo options faster)
    4. Once the search is complete, you’ll see a list of stores with their addresses and distance to them. Please note that a map view is also available
    5. Whether you’re in the list or map view, select a branch and click Store details to see its phone number (as well as opening times)
  2. Does Boots have a photo booth?

    Yes, most Boots stores have passport photo booths equipped with the necessary tools and technology to capture compliant images. They are designed to meet the official requirements set by the UK government, ensuring that the photo is suitable for a passport application. It is advisable to check with your nearest store to confirm the availability of a Boots passport photo booth and any specific guidelines or processes they may have in place.

  3. Do Boots do digital passport photos?

    Some of the branches do offer the option of having your UK passport photo taken by a member of their staff using digital equipment. This allows for more flexibility in terms of customization and adjustments to ensure the photo meets the required specifications. After the photo is taken, it can be printed or provided to you digitally, depending on your preference. It’s best to check with your local branch for specific details on the Boots passport photo service, opening hours and any associated costs.

  4. Can you print passport photos at Boots?

    In many of its stores across the UK, the popular pharmacy chain does do photo printing. Once you have taken a suitable picture and prepared a passport photo template, you can bring the digital file on a USB drive to the nearest Boots store that provides such services. They will be able to print your passport photos in the correct format and perfect size. Additionally, the employees can provide help on any specific guidelines that need to be followed. It’s recommended to contact your local branch to confirm they print passport photos and find out about closing hours and any associated costs.
    It’s also worth mentioning that you can always print pictures for your UK passport online. To do that, access the official photo printing page of Boots and order 6×4 prints.

  5. How much are passport photos at Boots?

    The price will vary depending on several factors. While in some of the branches, a set of Boots passport photos will cost as little as six pounds, the prices will differ depending on the location and the type of photo facilities it uses (if there are any in the first place).
    For instance, if the Boots store you’re going to visit has a standard Photo-Me booth, a set of printed Boots passport pictures and a photo code will cost eight pounds. However, some branches may offer a photoshoot with a human photographer, just like at post offices. If this is the case, it’s better to clarify the price beforehand by calling the place (use our store finder guide in the previous section to find the phone number of the branch you need).
    If you need to have your picture taken urgently, try our online application—here, it takes mere seconds to get a perfect biometric photo conveniently. Also, there are no digital photo upload limits: in case you need images for your whole family, take as many photo shots as you need! Our tool works perfectly for everyone, whether it’s a baby, man or woman passport photo.

  6. How long does Boots photo take?

    Whatever method you choose (a printing kiosk or a Boots passport photo machine), the whole process shouldn’t take more than a few minutes if you know how to use these devices.
    However, if you’re not tech-savvy, getting your images may well take some more time. If this is the case, consider using our web service to get your passport photo online (it’s also one of the cheaper options).
    Here, almost everything is done for you—you only upload your existing picture (or take a new one) and wait a moment for us to process it into a valid UK passport photo (i.e. remove the background and crop the photo to the correct proportions). Then, choose the type of compliance check: you can either have your UK passport photos verified by our AI system or order a human expert check (we recommend the latter so that the application process and a possible interview go as smoothly as possible).
    Once the processing and verification stages are over, you’ll get:

    1. A professional passport photo in JPEG format. In case you want to apply from home, you can send it in on the official online submission page ( with guaranteed acceptance
    2. A passport photo template with four photos: you can print it (say, in a Boots store) to submit your application and the printed pictures by post
