Is there any place in Auckland, North Shore where I can get a standard Travel Visa photo taken that's less than $20, and if possible only one picture is needed. (and no more). So hopefully that will be cheaper.

Last time I had one done was in a suburban pharmacy - only $10 surprisingly. They will give you the standard four photos anyway no difference counter top printer.

I only pay 12c for 6 copies.

Take a picture of yourself using this guideline:
http://www.passports.govt.nz/Passport-photos

1. Go to http://www.idphoto4you.com/ or any equivalent sites.
2. Select NZ
3. Upload your photo
4. Crop and center
5. Download your photo
6. Take it to photo printing station (eg. Harvey norman)

+1 for http://www.idphoto4you.com/

Was simple and fast for my passport photo, and my 6 month old daughter.

Can you do that? Is it legal? But then again it would only waste 12c!

Thanks for the suggestion!

Oh and are those the same requirements for a standard international travel visa photo?

4X6 is the normal requirement for a visa photo, larger than NZ passport size. Check with the application form, that website looks to be able to output to what ever size you need!

Yeah, on the application form it said it accepts "Passport-sized" photos.

I did something similar.

Took the photos myself. Then cropped the images to passport size and pasted them onto a 6x4 sized image. I was able to do 2 people's passport photos onto the one 6x4 image.

Then took the image to Dick Smith and printed it off there. The fun part was paying 12c via EFTPOS :-)  I didn't want to pay 20c cash and waste 8c.

One was for a NZ passport, one for a US passport. They have slightly different requirements but both were accepted fine.

I know this thread is about visa photos but with DIA now offering online passports, there is really no need to pay to have a photo done anymore.

Wouldn't cash be better? 12c would be equivalent to (rounding of) 10c.?

Take them yourself! We took photos of ourselves and three kids, and they were accepted and fine for passports.
Takes about 30 photos to get a good one, and we were very careful that they would comply with the requirements, but it was very much cheaper than getting 5 people's photos done at the local pharmacy or whatever.

Cheers,
Joseph

That's good. Then I plan on taking the photos myself.
Does the very above link to the passport requirements link apply to the Travel Visa Photo requirements?
