PMV Online application - passport photos

Hello again everyone,

Me and my fiance have been reading on this forum for months now but we never came across this query:

We are about to apply online and we're wondering how do we do the passport photos with our names written on the back.. Do we need that as well or is it for paper application only??

If we do, then do we just have our photos, write our names on the back and colour scan?

Thank you guys!!

You don't need to write the name on the back. You can scan the colour photos to a jpg file. DIBP prefer the photos to be sized as 640x480 pixels and 200 dpi. Give each of the files a name that identifies the identity of the photograph.

If you need some image processing software to process the image to correct size download GIMP. It is a free program and is almost as good as Photoshop.

Hello sir Jeremy Hooper,

Thank you for that info! We only have 60 files to upload yeah, so does that mean we'll be consuming 2 of those 60 files for the passport photos alone? Or can we combine our photos in a single pdf file? Because I'm doing all in my power to maximize the 60 files allowance lol.

You can combine them in one file. With 60 piles it is a good idea to group the files together and combine them. For Example:

Identity files - Passport, Birth Certificate, Name Change etc.

Financial Evidence
Photographs
Form 888's
Narratives
Travel together.

etc.

Think it through before you upload so that you don't suddenly run out of space.

Hello,

yes sir that's what we did, we put the photos in a powerpoint presentation and saved it as a pdf file. We were able to put in a lot with just a small file size!

By the way, how many passport size photographs do they need if we're applying online??

Thank you again for your help!

You only need one. The Department can send as many copies of your one photo as they need to.
