    Passport photo from walmart says signature of official not guarantor

    Hi, Just would like to confirm one thing. At the back of the photo where guarantor signs. All the wordings are ok but at the bottom it says "Signature of official" instead of Guarantor. Is it ok ?? I am not sure why the walmart stamp says official and not guarantor.
