Adult Passport Renewal check list

The size and quality of your passport photograph is of critical importance. The size of your head in the photograph must comply with Australian passport requirements, which differ from United Kingdom passport photograph standards. Familiarise yourself with these requirements and ensure you submit compliant photos. Your application may be rejected because of unusable photographs. Do not use UK Photo Booths as they are not set to Australian Standards.
