The NZ passport application form says that you must not use a staple, glue or paperclip to attach your photos to the form.

 

So, how do you do it?

 

I am thinking of photo corners but that seems to be over the top.

 

Please note that suggestions to file online are not relevant because they do not address the question of how the passport office expects you to attach photos.

I recall last time I did mine it was all via the internet??
The post office took a photo, then they gave me a special number to then put into the passport registration page which then automatically linked it or something.

Still gave me the option to download it and upload manually too, which I did..

Cheers

Don’t attach them - leave them loose in the envelope.

I popped them in a small plastic bag and stapled the bag.  Even a small coin bag from the bank will do though slightly large.

 

Make sure that you write your name on the back of the photo, but not too hard so that indentations appear on the photo.

 

 

 

But this time I applied online Monday last week - a very straight forward process,   and got an email today that its in the post.

 

Wifes one came back finished in 3 days though we opted for the normal service. Pretty awesome service.

 


cheers

Yeah, that worked for me. Seems like the obvious solution. I mean, if they ask you not to attach the photo then... don't look for ways to attach it?
