How to Upload Photos

What do you mean by a passport style photograph?

The photo must be:

  • The same shape and size as a passport photo (200 x 240 pixels)
  • In colour
  • Clear and in focus
  • Without any tears or creases
  • Close up of your full head and shoulders
  • You must be facing forward with nothing covering your face

Please see an example of how your photograph should look below:
