I’ would definitely recommend this site for passport photos. Excellent service - very efficient and great quality. I was impressed with the packaging as we live in a rainy state and nothing arrived wet and crumbled- quite the opposite! Thank you from an Aussie

I uplodaded the photos I took of my children against the living room wall at 10am and I had the notification that the passport photos had been shipped at 7pm the same day. SO much time saved. Thank you so much Bruce. This is such a great service.

Sent the digital photo to at 9:30 am on a Wednesday. They had the photo in the mail that day. Received it on Friday, two days later. Considering the distance from California to Tennessee, that is pretty good. Of course you pay for it, but it was worth it. This is the best way to get an Aussie passport photo if you live outside of Australia.

This company gets a 10 out of 10,I would recommend you every time. Thank you so much for easing my headache with your fast response to my questions regarding my passport photo.Not only did you explain in detail what I did wrong with the first picture I sent, but once I sent the second one you let me know in no time that it was a good shot and my passport photos were on route to my home in time for my interview in Nashville just a few days later. I am one happy Aussie, has my interview today and everything went perfect.

Super easy and efficient service. Emailed digital photo file on Friday 10/26 after my printed versions were rejected at the Australian Consulate passport office in San Francisco (from the same photo file) and received printed hard copies the following Monday. Just resubmitted my passport application 10/31 and the print quality and size were accepted as guaranteed. Highly recommend the service!

 BackgroundThe background should be white.  The background should not have any pattern. The photo should show only the person to be photographed (no other persons or objects in the photo). No shadows must be shown on the background.



You need to take the photo with a neutral expression with your mouth closed, not laughing, smiling, frowning and not showing your teeth. With both eyes open, contrived expressions such as raised eyebrows or squinting are not acceptable.
 Head Position The head of the person photographed should be neither at an angle nor turned (portrait style).  Your head must be square to the camera; your face can not be slightly rotated and or tilted. Your face and eyes must be straight towards the camera so we can see an equal amount of each ear and cheek.

Photos must be in color.

If you must wear your glasses there cannot be any glare anywhere on the glass and the frame cannot cover any part of your eyes. The eyes must be clearly recognizable (reflections from glasses, tinted glasses or sunglasses are not permitted). 
 Head wearGenerally speaking, head wear is not permitted. Exceptions are possible, especially for religious reasons. In such cases, the face must be visible from the lower tip of the chin to the forehead. No shadows should be visible on the face.

The face must be sharply focused in all areas, rich in contrast and clear. 

 Back of PhotoFor a renewal application, which is the one page form, one of your photos must have your name printed on the back. For a new application, one of these photos must be endorsed on the back with the words "This is a true photo of (your full name)" and then signed by your guarantor.
