The AU authorities don’t provide a strict dress code for Australian passport photos. The safest principle to follow is to wear formal clothes on the upper part of your body for official documents. No headgear or uniforms are allowed. Feel free to wear the clothes necessary for religious or medical reasons.
Dress casually. Simple plain clothes with sharp contrast are the best choice here. Put on some of these: shirt, tank top, blouse (better with round neck), polo, jacket, vest, suit, blazer, long sleeve, religious attire. Focus on your face and neck look since Australian passport photos show only the upper body. As for the face-related details, it’s required by the rules to keep a neutral facial expression (no smiling, forehead and eyebrows relaxed) and set your shoulders straight.
Your hair must not cover your face. You can’t wear a hat, a head covering, sunglasses, jewellery, or huge hair accessories. But there are exceptions. Hats and headcovers can be worn to reflect religious beliefs if you have clear facial features.
Australian Passport Office doesn’t endorse any particular professional photographer studio. Thus, you can take a digital Australian passport picture at home. Here’s all equipment that you need: a smartphone camera (Android phone or iPhone) or a simple digital camera.
Later on, when you upload your photos, the PhotoBooth Online cropper tool will resize and crop frame them to the correct format file you can download for free.
That’s it. Enjoy your best passport picture ever!
Australian passport photo size is 35mm wide and 45mm high. 65-80% of your headshot or between 32mm and 36mm high from the crown of your head to your chin should be fulfilled with your head. As for digital colourful Australian passport photo width and height dimensions, the minimum size is 600 x 600 pixels and the maximum size 1200 x 1200 pixels.
