Pricing (cost per person)
Online passport renewal for New Zealanders
It is now usual for adult and children's NZ passports to be renewed online, and also 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, pre-tested photo file straight away by email for $20.
NOTE: if sending the photo from a phone or other mobile device, ensure you do not further compress the photo file or it may be rejected. Check your settings.
Work visa and resident visa photos for New Zealand are still mostly done with printed photos ($25 + free digital file) but in some cases digital-only ($20). I can do both of these correctly, print photos while you wait and email the digital photo file to you.
Do I need to worry about...?
10 year New Zealand biometric passport photos
You're going to be stuck with your NZ passport photo for the next ten years, so it makes sense to get a good photo that you're happy with.
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 necessarily experienced photographers.
