Change to Australian Passport Photo Requirements – 1 July 2018

Getting a New Australian Passport – 

From 1 July 2018 new passport photos must be taken without glasses.

This will further strengthen the integrity of the Australian passport. Research commissioned by DFAT has shown that glasses adversely affect passport facial matching – matching is more accurate without glasses.

Other passport photo standards are unchanged, such as looking straight at the camera; neutral expression; hair off the face; no red-eye; no shadows; plain background. A limited exemption for medical reasons may apply where supported by a medical certificate.
