  • Acceptable photos
  • Immigration New Zealand (INZ) has introduced new, stricter quality requirements for photographs accompanying visa applications. The new requirements, similar to passport photos, are needed to support a new immigration identity management system that improves detection of people trying to commit identity fraud. INZ recommends that visa applicants submit photos taken by a professional photographer or a business set up to take passport photos. The detailed new Acceptable Photo requirements are available on the INZ website. The website also provides guidance on how to respond to specific error messages. (Note: the INZ Immigration Contact Centre will not be able to help resolve photo upload errors if applying through Immigration ONLINE).
