HM Passport Agency is changing the way passport photographs are conveyed to them. The old paper passport photograph will soon not be accepted, as the agency changes to digital, online applications.
In future, your passport photo will be sent to the Passport Agency with a unique code, that you must obtain from the studio where your passport photo was taken.
When you visit our Barnstaple studio, we will make a passport photo in the usual manner, but instead of printing it, we will upload it to a dedicated website. When it has been checked for compliance and biometric measurement, you will receive an email, with your unique code, and a link to apply online for your new passport. It’s all so much simpler and easier!
