Passport Photographs


While you wait service, take your photographs with you in about 5 minutes. no appointment needed


It’s more than just a mug shot!

Passport photos are now a high tech identification device.


New security measures with passports mean that the bio-metric data from your passport photo is used as part of the high security system that is your new passport.


Photos need to be taken within very specific limits and to exact specifications to ensure they are suitable for the purpose.


For passport photos and visas,

Please do not wear white/ light coloured clothing as there needs to be sufficient contrast between the background and the person. No hooded tops, high collars or scarfs No hair bands, large clips and there must be a visible gap between your eyebrows and your hair.


You also need to remember that photo specifications and sizes are different for many different countries.

For example, UK passport photos are different to Irish passport photos which are 

different to Dutch photos which are different to Canadian photos... and so it goes on.
