WASHINGTON (AP) — The State Department is banning passport and visa applicants from wearing eyeglasses in photos taken for the documents.
In a notice published Friday, October 14, 2016, the department said that effective Nov. 1, applicants must remove glasses for passport and visa photographs.
It says the step is being taken to “eliminate glares and shadows” that can cause delays in processing the applications and to ensure consistent photo standards. Only in rare circumstances, if applicants have “documented medical necessity during urgent travel” will glasses be allowed.

In 2015, more than 200,000 poor quality photos were submitted, and caused applications to be put on hold. The U.S. Passport Services notice said glasses were the No. 1 problem.
The department says it expects to process a record number of passports — more than 20 million — in the current budget year that ends next October.
No, you don’t have to get a brand new passport right now, but next time you renew, you’ll have to take your glasses off.
No Glasses Allowed, Starting November 1st
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.*
*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.
Samsung Galaxy Note 7 phones will be banned from all airline flights after nearly 100 incidents of the devices overheating and sometimes injuring owners, the Transportation Department announced Friday.
The Federal Aviation Administration previously urged travelers not to turn on the phones, pack them in checked luggage or charge them during a flight. The new ban is effective at noon Saturday, Transportation Secretary Anthony Foxx said.
“We recognize that banning these phones from airlines will inconvenience some passengers, but the safety of all those aboard an aircraft must take priority,” Foxx said. “We are taking this additional step because even one fire incident inflight poses a high risk of severe personal injury and puts many lives at risk.” MORE

Air China makes maiden flight to Ethiopia’s capital
ADDIS ABABA — Air China, one of China’s biggest airlines, on Monday made its maiden flight to Addis Ababa, capital of Ethiopia, which has become the second destination of the airline in Africa, next to South Africa.
With its launching flight, Air China touched down at the Bole International Airport in the capital of the East African country, which is a seat for headquarters of the African Union (AU) and the UN Economic Commission for Africa (UNECA) among other international and regional organizations.
With this new route, Air China will make thrice a week flights between Beijing and Addis Ababa.
The launching flight of the Airline with Airbus A330 was accorded warm welcome during its landing at Bole Airport by officials and staff members of the Ethiopian Airports Enterprise, the Ethiopian Airlines, Air China and also diplomats among others.
The new route of Air China between Beijing and Addis Ababa came few days after the launch of maiden flight between Beijing and Johannesburg in South Africa few days back.
Tewolde Gebremariam, Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of the Ethiopian Airlines Group, told Xinhua on the occasion that the launch of flights between Beijing and Addis Ababa by Air China would be both cooperation and “friendly” competition between Ethiopian and Air China.
Reiterating that both Air China and Ethiopian are members of the Star Alliance, the CEO said the two airliners would cooperate in the spirit of Star Alliance as Air China flies to 225 domestic destinations in China while Ethiopian does to 50 destinations in Africa.
“It is going to be both cooperation and competition; we call it a friendly competition. So, we are very happy that Air China has chosen Addis as its hub in Africa,” said Tewolde.
“Naturally, Addis is the best gateway to Africa with the Ethiopian Airlines flying to more than 50 destinations in Africa. So, Air China is the Star Alliance member and the Ethiopian Airlines is also a member of Star Alliance, so, within the spirit of Star Alliance we are going to cooperate,” he said.
“Air China flies to 225 destinations in China domestically; and Ethiopian Airlines (flies to) more than 50 destinations in Africa. So, we have a lot of synergy, complementarity; so, we are going to cooperate in that line. But, at the same time we are going to compete. So, it is competition and cooperation,” he added.
With the increase of exchanges between the two countries and with the increase of investment by Chinese companies in Africa, more and more Chinese people are coming to Africa, he said.
