Yes, this office supplies store does provide such a service. If you’re in the process of document renewal and need an Australian passport photo, come visit the nearest Officeworks store.
One of the employees will wait on you and help you through the whole thing: he or she will arrange the lighting, set up the camera and take your image.
Once the passport photo is done, the employee will also check your photographs for compliance. If you want to follow the approved government standards: eyes wide open, neutral facial expression, no shadows, correct head proportions, plain background and decent image quality and contrast (no photoshop though!).
As soon as Officeworks sees that everything’s okay, they’ll give you photo prints that you can submit for renewal.
The answer will vary depending on the type of service.
Most likely, you need to take an Australian passport photo from scratch. In this case, your photoshoot (with proper lighting, high-quality camera, etc.) and photo printing will cost you $16.95.
There’s also an option for those who want it cheaper! You can create passport photos yourself and just head to the nearest Officeworks store to have them printed out for $0.15 only! Here’s how you do it:
Upload the passport-size photo. Officeworks gives you two options: either pick them up at one of the office supplies stores or have them delivered to your home. Please note that the latter will cost more.
As an alternative, you can download the Photos at Officeworks mobile application on your phone. It has the feature to have your photo printed there—you can install it on your smartphone via App Store or Google Play.
For those who need an Australian passport photo, these two options actually serve two very different purposes. Let’s break both options down.
The Officeworks app can only be used to have your photos printed. It doesn’t have any features that would allow you to make your image into a passport photo compliant in Australia.
On the other hand, the PhotoBooth Online service can be used exactly for this. Using only your phone, you can take an image of yourself and upload it to this page. Wait a moment or two, and we’ll convert it into a passport photo that meets the AU government standards and the ICAO’s specifications (International Civil Aviation Organisation). In fact, we give a satisfaction guarantee: each passport photo we make is checked for compliance to make sure it’s accepted.
Once your photo is processed, you can either reproduce it with your own printer or take it to any local place that can get it printed. Again, Officeworks Ltd provides such services for little money.
