Online passport renewal for New Zealanders
It is now possible for both adult and child NZ passports to be renewed online, and to get first-time adult passports online. This system is a world first and works very well. See www.passports.govt.nz
We can supply a suitable, tested photo file straight away by email for $20.
NOTE: if sending the photo from a phone or tablet, ensure you do not further compress the photo file, or it may be rejected. Check your settings.
Passport, visa, ID photos, prints & digital files
New pricing (cost per person)
Do I need to worry about...?
10 year NZ passports
You're going to be stuck with your NZ passport photo for the next ten years, so it makes sense to get a good one.
I am a professional photographer who is also a specialist in passport and visa photos. I use good lighting and a good camera, and I take care to make high quality photos for around the same price as most other providers that are not trained, experienced photographers.
Dutch passport photos
Yes, I can do them!
If you're making a special trip to the Netherlands Embassy in Wellington for your Dutch passport, you may need photos taken earlier in the morning than I'm usually open. This can usually happen. Please email me for an appointment.
