Passport Photos

Here are a few of the ways we do that:

  • We can cater to all your passport needs including babies and children. International Passports, Visa’s and ID needs are not a problem either.
  • We make sure you are well lit to produce an even skin tone with no shadows.
  • We will show you your photo before proceeding to make sure you are happy with it.
  • We check that it will be approved with the passport standards so there is no messing around with rejected photo applications
  • We can print out a physical copy and/or email it to you for digital use.

What should I wear?

  • We recommend wearing natural looking makeup.
  • Avoid a white top or shirt if you can as it is best to have a clear contrast between your clothing and the background.
  • Make sure your hair is up off your face, or tucked behind your ears so it is not covering your face. Particularly off your eyebrows.
  • You will need to remove any glasses, scarfs (unless it is for religious or medical reasons) or hats so we can see your face..
  • We can help by letting you know if you are wearing anything that will stop your passport getting accepted.

How does the passport process work?

  1. Come in to our store: Coast Photo (14 Bakehouse Lane, Orewa) and let us know you want your passport photo taken.
  2. Select the format you need your photos in print (if you are mailing in an application, digital if you are applying online) printed or emailed to you.
  3. We will make sure you have a suitable amount of space around your head and make any required tweaks to ensure you comply with the latest passport standards.
  4. Unfortunately you are not allowed to smile in passport photos so you need to put on your best looking neutral expression.
  5. We take up to 3 shots of you
  6. You can view and choose the best shot and make sure you are happy with it.
  7. Then all that is left to do is pay then we will get your image underway for you.
