The photo must be taken within six months and produced using dye sublimation. And the photo must meet all the following requirements:

Photo size and quality

 Background and Lighting

 Head coverings

Those who usually cover their heads for religious reasons can wear the covering in their visa photos.

The head covering must be plain, without patterns (even small ones), and worn so that your face can be seen from the bottom of the chin to the top of the forehead. Your face's edges on either side must also be visible.

Jewellery and piercings

Jewellery cannot obscure any part of your face, especially around your eyes, mouth, or nose. Rings and studs cannot reflect light.


It is not allowed to wear glasses in visa photos.

If you are unable to take off your glasses due to medical reasons, you must ensure that the frames do not obscure your eyes or that the lenses do not reflect. If you wear glasses in a visa photo, you must show a medical certificate or fill out a declaration form stating why. Note: vision impairment alone is not an acceptable reason to wear glasses.

Hearing aids

Your visa photo may include hearing aids if you usually wear them - this applies to adults, children, and infants.

Babies and infants

For infants under three years of age, a photo with an open mouth is acceptable. All other requirements must be met, and there must be no other objects or people in the photo.

How to make Australia Visa photo online

Step 1: Take a picture with a digital camera or a smartphone

Make sure someone takes your passport photo for you. Selfies are not accepted. Make use of your tripod if you have one. By using a tripod, you will be able to keep the camera level and steady. Ideally, the person should be around 1 meter away from the camera.

Step 2: Choose a venue with appropriate lighting

Face a bright window or the door when taking a photo. In this way, shadows can be avoided on the face and in the background. It is essential that the face is evenly lit. Ensure that the face is free of shadows and glares.

Note: You do not need to worry about the background, since our online passport photo generator will automatically do it for you.

Step 3: Dress appropriately for your passport photo

Uniforms should not be worn. Put on regular street clothes for your photo.

Eyeglasses should not be worn. You should remove any sunglasses, tinted glasses, or glasses that you wear if you are taking a passport photo.

Ensure that your face is fully visible. Make sure your hair doesn't cover your face or obscure your eyes. In the case of very long bangs covering your eyebrows, pin them back with bobby pins. Although it's better to show your ears as well, that won't stop your photo from being accepted.

Passport photos don't allow hats unless they're religious headgear such as a headscarf or yarmulke.

Step 4: Pose for a passport photo

Face the camera straight on and look straight at it. Avoid tilting or rotating the head.

It is important that the shoulders are visible, and there should be enough space around the head to crop the picture.

Make sure the camera is at the same level as the head.

Step 5: Maintain neutral facial expressions

It's okay to smile in your passport photo, but the government prefers you to have a neutral facial expression.

Under the new international passport rules, it is usually not acceptable to smile or have your mouth open.
