  4. How do I get a passport photo in Australia?

    There are two ways you can go:

    1. The Aus post office offers photos and applications services, in case you lost your passport, need to renew one, or you’re getting it the first time.
    2. If for some reason, you have second thoughts about whether to pay the extra price, take your verified picture at home with PhotoBooth. The service is tuned up to make sure that the photo meets all the requirements for wear, lighting, face, size, background, printed format, etc. The picture shows up ready in seconds. All you need is to download a ready JPEG/PNG file.


    Whatever option you’ll tap into, reap the benefits of the actionable tips. When posing, hold your back straight. With your shoulders down. Make sure your chin is parallel to the ground. Try to be positive-looking as if smiling with your eyes, aka smizing (but not smiling). It’ll soften your look and give you a more natural expression for the photo you’ll love.

    Yes. You can choose to find your post office nearby and apply for your document with pictures taken there. Or, if you care to create your own pictures at your home convenience in advance and with no fee, try out our website for these reasons.

  6. Does my local post office take photographs for a passport?

    Don’t be taking off to get your pictures before you read the information on opening times of your local office. You can start by checking their website in the Pricing & locations section. They share an update on their site when the post office is open.

  7. How many passport pictures do they provide at post offices?

    You’ll receive two photos (which are identical) at the office, and you can submit your documents. They will also send you a digital copy to your email address.

  8. Can I take a selfie?

    Yes. However, we would suggest taking your picture through our free tool. There are a few important guidelines per the passport office you should observe to avoid mistakes, not to get a rejected application, and be fully accepted when you apply:

    1. The required size for the picture is 35mm x 40mm in width, 45mm x 50mm in height.
    2. Note your printed picture should address the following rules at its maximum: the size, lighting, head coverings worn only for religious reasons (no pattern), not tilted head position, neutral facial features, no hats, no sunnies or glasses, no lenses reflection.
    3. No retouching to clearly see your identity.
    4. Wear no jewellery in the area of your nose, face or eyes.
    5. They accept and confirm a plain light-coloured or plain white background so that your face will stand out.
  9. Can I use my images of a year old or a coupla years old?

    Unfortunately, it’s not allowed to use images out of date that is several years old. It’s notified that they must be less than 6 months old. Otherwise, the application won’t be complete, you might receive a rejection, and have to replace your picture.

  10. Should it be glossy paper?

    It’s a fact, the paper does matter. The allowed printing paper kind is glossy with a matte style texture, hence the hybrid. Please do planning prior to moving! Before a visit, we recommend, you find and check with your local camera store or private photo studio that the paper types for print follow the requirements. When confirmation is received, be confident to print them at these stores.
