Guideline For Taking Passport Photos of Adults

  • Make sure the background is plain.
  • Choose either white or a neutral colour for the background.
  • Cameramen should always be level with the subject’s head.
  • Hair shouldn’t be covering any part of your face including eyebrows.
  • All the edges of the face should be clearly visible.
  • Do not smile in your photo.
  • Do not show your teeth in the photo. 
  • Maintain a neutral expression.
  • Pay special attention to lighting to avoid shadows.
  • Make sure the face is evenly lighted on all sides.
  • The photo should always be taken from the chest up.
  • There should be plenty of space around the head. It will help us make the necessary crops to adjust the image.

Guidelines for Taking Passport Photos of Babies/Newborns

  • Make sure the background is plain. 
  • Use a plain blanket or a bedsheet for the background.
  • For newborns, you might want to support the head of the baby but make sure hands aren’t visible.
  • The baby’s head should be right in the middle.
  • Ensure there is plenty of space around the shoulders and head. It can be cropped out later when you mail it to us.
  • The baby should not open its mouth. Babies up to 3 years of age can have their mouths open.
  • The baby should be looking at the camera.
  • Keep your camera at a distance of around 1.5 m from the baby.
  • Make sure the face is evenly lighted.
  • There shouldn’t be any shadows on the face.

Whether you are taking photos of a baby or an adult, make sure you take multiple shots. Email all those shots to us. We will choose the best and do the necessary adjustments to make it fit for a passport photo.

Whether you are applying for a new passport or renewal of the passport, your photo cannot be more than 6 months old. You are allowed to wear glasses or jewellery but it should not cover any part of your face. 

Avoid glasses with thick frames or tinted lenses. If you cover your head for any reason, you need to make sure that your full face is visible including the edges of the face.

Make sure you do not use any graphic program to retouch photos. Do not remove any scars, wrinkles, moles or background. Let us take care of everything.


Passport photos have specific requirements. In fact, one of the most common reasons for the rejection of passport applications is photographs that do not match the regulatory requirements. You can always take a photo on your phone and print it on your home printer. However, if it does not match the requirements of the Australian Passport Office, your application is likely to get rejected.

Photoland has an experienced passport photo team. If you are near our studio, give us a visit and get back your passport photo in as few as 15 minutes with our rush service. With our 100% acceptance guarantee, there is nothing for you to risk. If you are busy, you can always email us your photos and get back the printed photos within a few days. Our online passport photo printing service is especially suitable for kids or newborns.

Wonderful experience. I first went into the store very tentatively, not sure if I ‘needed’ a custom made frame, however, having Victor’s consultative input on the different frame designs and customisable feature was so valuable. In the end Victor helped create a beautiful frame for my father in law’s memorial service sheets. As you can imagine, this was a sensitive thing to put in someone else’s hands but the team treated everything with such care and the finished product looks amazing.Thanks guys, would 100% more

#aboveandbeyond Victor and the Photoland team produced the most fantastic framed photo gift for me to surprise my partner with. They combined the half marathon medal and number with a photo from the finish line - the end product far surpassed my expectations . Real customer service, great communication - no wonder they are the only photo framing place in the CBD. I cannot recommend them highly enough. Thanks again more
