Passport photos thread

Recommended Posts

You can apply for a passport online and submit digital photos during the application.

I don't think you can. I recently did a passport application online and you had to send two photos with the deflation form. You had to print this off and sign it.

Yes you can, I just did mine this week.

 

Provided you are renewing your passport and can still be identified from your old photograph (mine was 20 years old!) you can upload a new digital photograph (selfie or by somebody else) and the entire process is handled electronically.

 

The photograph will get checked to make sure there are no problems such as shadows or smiles or hats. If there are problems you can simply upload a different photograph.

 

I was very impressed with the service and my new passport arrived within 5 days.

Yep, I did mine a couple of weeks ago, and took my own photo using a tripod. You just need a blank wall to take it in front of, and you can keep retaking until you get one you like. Much better than the photo booths that distort your face because of how close the camera is.

Oh must have missed that bit. I got some done at Timpsons. They guarantee them as well. If you have any problems just go back with your receipt and they will take some new ones.

I can recommend Max Spielman in town. They will rephotograph you for free if there are any problems with the photos. Pop the photos into the main post office for them to do their check and send process and you should be sorted.

You can only submit digital photos online if you are renewing a passport and are recognisable from the previous photo. Otherwise you have to send in signed photos.

Had a recent visa photo taken at Timson's. Was impressed with their knowledge of the rules.

 

I ended up looking like a goon, so they can get a good likeness.
