WCIF passport photo store on the Blue Line downtown Taipei?

Forum rules
1) Please search :pray: before posting. Note that you should also search content-relevant forums (like Food & Drink for those items, and not just WCIF). If there is a content-relevant forum, the thread should be there, not here.

2) Please append your request to an existing thread if you find a stale one, rather than starting a new one. :pray:

3) Please post separately :pray: for each search item, not one thread for "olives and sour cream". Two threads, one for each. This makes it much easier for the moderator to merge your thread with an existing one, if any.

Of course, if you still can't find what you're looking for, please do feel free to post, and we'll do our very best to help you find what you need. If you have any trouble using the search function or the forum, please don't hesitate to send a PM (private message) to the Where Can I find...? moderator asking for help. Happy posting!!! :rainbow:

I seem to stumble upon the photo machine frequently in many MRT stations. I think I saw one in Ximen station and at Zhongxiao/Dunhua station. Not so near to the blue line on Bade Lu section 4 and Guangfu is the 台北市區監理所 Taipei City Motor Vehicles Office and they have a few machines that can do passport size photos.

Photo machines usually aren't going to be good enough for passport photos - you typically need some kind of stamp on the back of the picture, plus follow all kinds of precise rules.

A place called Tongli Photos I believe does passport photos: 統立彩色電子影像, 台北市忠孝東路四段216巷18號 / No. 18, Lane 216, Zhongxiao East Road Section 4. It's around two blocks south of Zhongxiao East Road, about halfway between Zhongxiao Dunhua and SYS MRT stations - slightly closer to Zhongxiao Dunhua.

US AIT accepts them. Vietnam office accepts them. Should be fine unless the application form states something differently.

Fair enough - I guess I should have said "sometimes". Canadian passport photos have all sorts of silly rules. US passports have similarly strict dimension rules, but don't seem to require a stamp on the back. I'd be mildly surprised if photos taken at a random booth fit those dimensions, but if they do, great.

If you're looking for American size passport photos, AIT has a photo booth inside the building, near the exit. You have to enter the building then proceed to the exit.
