Australian passport and visa photo requirements are now very strict. We are one of a handful of professional photo studios in the UK with the equipment and expertise to do them well. For this reason we do charge a little more for Australian passport photos but we get it right first time.

Appointments are not required and we can usually print out your Australian passport and visa photos within minutes but it's always good to let us know you are coming in. We are based in Camden London and open 7 days a week. If possible bring along a current set of Australian passport instructions with you for your own peace of mind as they do change slightly over time.

  • Australian passport photos must be 45–50mm high and 35–40mm wide
  • The bottom of the chin to the crown must be between 32mm and 36mm
  • Must on high-quality paper and use high resolution
  • Natural skin tones with good brightness and contrast
  • No flash reflections and no red eye in Australian Passport Photos
  • Neutral expression and mouth closed is required

  • Australian passport photos should show you looking directly at the camera
  • Your hair must not obscure your eyes or face
  • Photos should show both edges of your face clearly
  • Australian passport photographs cannot be digitally altered in any way

If you are concerned about your appearance and need to look your very best in your passport photos then consider having a passport makeover in our studios - this will reduce the look of wrinkles, bags under the eyes and bad skin tone etc.
