Click “Enter” and if everything was okay, you should get an image like the one above.
On a laptop or desktop, click “Save a copy”. Depending on your browser (Chrome, Microsoft Edge, Safari, Firefox) you may see different messages but they should all do the same thing – allow you to save the image. The most important part is to remember the location (folder) it was saved to.
After saving your passport, you’ll need to find it, open it up and then print it. Typically if you double click the icon, whatever app opens it up so you can view it will also allow you to print it. On the menu, look for “File” and then under that look for “Print”.
On an Android phone or tablet, click “Save a copy” Your phone or tablet may save the image to your downloads folder or a photos folder. Another way to save the image is to take a screenshot. On most Android devices, simultaneously pressing and then releasing the power and volume down buttons will snap a screenshot. This image will likely be stored in the “Screenshots” folder.
