Help Centre what do you need help with?

I cover my head or face for religious or cultural reasons. What will happen when I go to have my photo taken for biometrics?

When you have your photograph taken, your whole face must be clearly visible.

You may request to have your photo taken by an operator of the same gender and you may ask for a privacy curtain.

Did you find what you were looking for?

What was wrong?

You will not receive a reply. Telephone numbers and email addresses will be removed.
