Two (2) identical photographs must be submitted,  They should be45–50mm (1 3/4" -1 15/16" )  high and 35–40mm (1 3/8" -1 9/16" ) wide show head and top of shoulders close up, so the measurement of the face from the bottom of the chin to the crown (i.e. top of head without hair) is between 32mm and 36mm (1 1/4" -1 7/16" ). The photo must clearly show the person's facial features in a straight forward position from the tip of the chin to the crown of the head as well as the left and right sides of the face.  In the case of voluminous hair, it must be ensured that the head (including the hairstyle) is fully depicted without reducing the size of the face, if possible.  The face must be centered in the photo and no more than six months old, to ensure an up to date likeness. 
 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.
 Eyes & Line of  sightThe person in the photo must look directly into the camera. The eyes must be open and dearly visible and may not be covered by hair or spectacle frames.  The camera lens must be at the eye level of the person being photographed , not from above or below
The face must be evenly illuminated by the flash on the camera. Reflections or shadows on the face as well as red eyes must be avoided.  
 Photo Quality
The photo should be printed on high-quality paper with a print resolution of at least 600 dpi (especially when taken with a digital camera). The photo must be neutral in color and skin tones should appear natural. The photo should have no creases or impurities .  Photograph cannot be manipulated, for example, by removing spots or softening lines. Photos must be in color.
 Wearing  GlassesPlease take off your glasses; it will guarantee your photo passing. 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.
If you are an Australian adult citizen aged 18 years or over and can provide at interview an Australian adult passport (issued with at least 2 years validity) which is current or has expired within the last 12 months and shows your current personal details.

Infants or very small children who are unable to support themselves should be photographed

lying down from above.  Hands, arms, etc. used to support the child should not be visible.

I saw a couple of recommendations from the FB group OzinAmerica and decided to give it a try. I could not have been happier with Bruce's customer service. He was very responsive, especially when there were questions about acceptability of the images. I was able to send a final image which was then processed. I just got back from my appointment with the Aus Consulate in Houston and there were no issues at all with the photo. I would highly recommend Bruce's service.

I want to thank Bruce for his work in helping me print a Australia passport photo for my daughter. We went back and forth many times to ensure we had the exact photo requirements needed for an Australian passport. Highly recommend his services.

PassportPhoto Now is a great service! Our first time using it, but the communication was quick and informative. We received the photos for an Australian child's passport just a couple of days after submitting the request online. The photos were accepted by the Australian consulate and the passport was issued without problem.

Best communication ever. Emails were sent at every step of the way and the photos arrived much earlier than expected. Perfect service for someone that has a need for passport photos especially other country photos that have very specific requirements
