Where to obtain your passport photos

The Passport Office does not endorse any particular photographer. However, to assist clients living in the United States, we have provided the below list of photographers recently used by our clients with good results. We do not guarantee or take any responsibility for the work of these photographers. It is important that you discuss the photo requirements carefully with your photographer and check the photos yourself before submitting them to your lodging office.  We recommend that you contact the photographer to confirm their address and opening hours.

We also suggest that you ask your photographer to print the photos with the highest possible resolution - sometimes called Ultrafine.  We often find that the photo image itself is good, but the resolution on the printed version is too low.

No locations near you?

You may wish to try www.passportphotonow.com to print a photo you have taken yourself.  Please be careful that the photo you supply meets the requirements for size and resolution, and is an accurate reflection of your appearance and head shape.  Photos taken on smart phones may not be acceptable as they can distort head shape.  If using a smart phone, please make sure you take the photo horizontal/landscape style and NOT portrait/vertical style.  However, we strongly recommend that you use a digital camera (not a smartphone) as there is a high probability that photos taken on a phone will be rejected.

 

Get photos on the way to your interview

Many of our clients find it easier to obtain photos close to our passport offices, instead of trying to source photos in their home town.   Each passport office has one or more photographers nearby - please see the list below.  

For PC7 clients (one page renewal form), this is usually the best option as your photos don't need to be signed by a guarantor.  You should still check your photos carefully to make sure they are correct as we don't guarantee the work of the photographer.

For PC8 clients, you can also get photos on your way to the interview but there are some additional steps you will need to take:

  1. Obtain a passport photo from a local store and have  your guarantor endorse the back of it.  Any US-style photo will work for the guarantor endorsement.  The photo doesn't have to meet the Australian standards.
  2. On your way to your interview, obtain two additional photos from a store on our list below.  These two photos must meet the Australian standards so please check them carefully.  We don't guarantee the work of these photographers.
  3. Provide all three photos at your interview - the original photo signed by the guarantor, plus the two new photos you obtained on your way to the interview.
