Just a word of advice, if you need passport photos I would definitely go to the official photo booths and NOT the fella in the Market. I got some pics and they were rejected by the Passport office, you think he would know how to take them considering he advertises as Passport Pics. Anyway they were rejected as there are rules about how close you need to be. It caused a lot of bother as we were on a same day appointment, but he did give me a refund. But I would stick to the booths, they actually give you a guide for your face to make sure you are in the right part of the frame.

You can also get the post office to check the passport application first before sending. However that's a service that you have to pay for on top. If they check it and there is faults after the checks if i remember correctly the own-us is on the post office.

Glad you got it sorted, Nervous times passports.

I always get mine done at Max Spielmans, it only costs about 5 and they know all the rules and regs, which are quite a few these days.

I would ring the passport office if I was you. This happened to a friend of mine and when they rang they discovered it had been sent to number 2 instead of 21.

I did the same for step-daughters pics for her ID card, there are a few templates online that you can use for the right size, borders needed etc

I don't think there is any problem doing them yourself but you have to have the size right, to say that the guy in the market MARKETS himself as a Passport photo printer and then doesn't take them to size take the p*&&.
