Notice to all Visa Applicants – Acceptable Passport Copies
The Australian High Commission accepts two formats of passport copies:
- Notarized copies of ALL pages, blank or otherwise; or
- Copies certified by VFS.
The High Commission strongly recommends clients carry their original passports with them when they lodge at VFS to avoid any issues: http://www.india.embassy.gov.au/ndli/Visas_and_Migration.html. Unacceptable copies – missing pages or un-certified/un-notarized pages – can lead to adverse visa decisions. There is no obligation on the High Commission to request acceptable copies after lodgment and your application will be delayed.
Two passport-sized photograph (please attach to the form). NB - ID photos that have been digitally enhanced or altered to improve or change appearance or remove distinguishing features are not acceptable. As the photos are required for identity purposes, if they do not represent your true appearance, your visa application may be delayed if you need to be asked to provide new photos. The photos should also meet normal passport size and pose (front on head and shoulders, no facial coverings or sunglasses).
