A little too serious? A little chubby looking? Wish you had a tan? Forget those deer in the headlights photos from the local passport photo center, you can now run your own high end photoshoot, producing the perfect passport photo… with a selfie. For the image conscious traveler looking to impress immigration agents, who enjoys working in their pajamas, it’s hard to beat a passport application from the comfort of home, with the perfect selfie, right from your phone…

Daunting forms, multiple copies of embarrassing photos, sending checks, getting a passport has forever been an endless hassle. Forget that. ItsEasy is hoping that its “easy”, (yes, cheeky, I know) app, which allows you to bypass all the traditional passport hassle, will bring wanderlust and new passports into your life. After years of turning around rush passports in as little as six hours, the company has created an intuitive experience, streamlining passports into a series of snaps, taps and texts. You’ll take the perfect selfie, fill out some details just like sending a text, and even get a prepaid envelope for mailing off the parts that need to be physically sent. Basically, it’s a brand new passport without leaving home…

For those already snapping away, in search of the perfect pouty face, the experience is currently limited to the United States. Many countries are however expected to join in on the fun in the near future as passport technology continues to evolve. It’s estimated that by the year 2020 most paper passports will be replaced by digital, copy proof passports, storing up to date biometric information. It’s a crazy new world, and selfies are only a small part of that.
