Passport Photos

Chinese language version of the Australian passport requirements

Did you know that bad photographs are the most common reason for rejecting passport applications?

Photo requirements for China are different from those for Australian passports. You need to make sure your photos comply with Australian standards.

Below is a summary of the most important features for Australian passport photos, if any of the requirements are not met then your photos will be rejected, and your passport application will not be processed.



For more information on photo requirements visit or call the Australian Embassy or Consulate you are lodging your application at.

For your convenience you can download a Chinese language version of the Australian passport requirements to take to your nearest photo studio.

REMEMBER: It is your responsibility to check that your passport photographs comply with Australian standards – just because the photo studio tells you that the photos are acceptable for Australian standards does not mean they are.
