Passport Photos

Passport Photos

Australian passport photos are different to UK passport photos and can be difficult to obtain in the United Kingdom. We cannot accept photographs that are more than 6 months old.

Please review the photo requirements and camera operator guidelines, and discuss them with your photographer.  In particular, we suggest that you check your photographer:

  • can produce glossy prints that are printed at the highest resolution
  • does not use an inkjet printer (dye sublimation is acceptable)
  • has studio lighting so that there are no shadows behind your ears/head, and the lighting across your face is even.

We are unable to accept photos taken at UK photo booths as the resolution is not high enough to meet our requirements.
