Passport Photo NZ FAQ

  1. What to wear for passport photo?

    When it comes to passport photos in New Zealand, the government doesn’t have a hard-and-fast dress code. It’s suggested that you wear formal attire on the upper part of your body for official documents. Headgear, uniforms, and large hair accessories are not allowed, though exceptions can be made for religious or medical reasons. To achieve a polished look, it’s best to choose clothing with a sharp contrast. This includes shirts, tank tops, blouses, polo shirts, jackets, vests, suits, blazers, long sleeves, and religious attire. Make sure your face and neck are the focus of the photo, and keep a neutral expression with your forehead and eyebrows relaxed. Hair should not obscure your face, and hats, head coverings, sunglasses, jewellery, or other large accessories are not permitted.
