If you submit your photo to the relevant authority within the necessary timeframe, but for some reason your photos aren't accepted, just bring them back to the same post office and we'll replace them at no cost.

Want a digital copy of your photo?

Our staff at participating Post Offices can email you a digital version of your photo (in JPEG format), suitable for online applications such as New Zealand passport renewals.
