Biometrics Collection


Biometrics will be collected using a quick, discreet and non-intrusive process that captures a facial image with a digital camera and a 10-digit fingerprint scan with a digital finger scanner.

Applicants who have applied for their visas will be sent a Biometric requirement letter informing them that they need to attend the Australian Biometric Collection Centre in person to provide their biometrics.

Please note the following:

  1. Your face must be clearly visible for a photograph to be taken. This means that you cannot:

    • have hair that covers the eyes
    • wear a hat or scarf or any other item that obscures the face, hair or neck (with the exception of religious head coverings detailed below).
    • if you wear a head or neck covering for religious reasons you must ensure your face is clearly visible, from the bottom of your chin to above your eyebrows including both cheeks. If possible both ears should also be displayed. You may also need to remove your glasses when the photograph is taken.
  2. If you have cut or damaged your fingertips, you should inform the Australian Biometric Collection Centre when the injury has healed.
  3. If you have a temporary decoration, such as Mehdi, you should advise the Australian Biometric Collection Centre when submitting you application whether a scan will be possible.

If you refuse to submit your biometric data, your visa application cannot be processed and you will be referred to the Australian Embassy or Consulate in Myanmar.

The presence of parent or guardian are required for applicants less than 16 years of age applicants at the time of Biometric data submission at ABCC.
