    Default Baby Passport

    We may be going overseas in August and I will have a 3/4 month old.
    Do they get their own passport or does it still go on the mums passport being so young?
    Would theirs last five years? I couldnt find much info when I looked.

    Thanks

    Nope, every traveller needs their own. So bubs well need their own. And yep it's only 5 years and it's cheaper too (about half the price of an adult one)

    Thanks, I thought they would just get there own.
    Given they will not look like their photo by christmas seems odd to me they would let it last five years.
    Hopefully this will be easier to get, took me three days to get dd's photo taken for her passport!

    Go to a photography studio - like pixie photo, they do them for cheap. You may have to ring around for the best price. The lady in the post office said they should be the same price ($25 for 6 passport size photos) but DD was older and did ok at the PO.

    We bought a sheet of white cardboard and lay DS's head on it (on the floor) then took lots of photos standing directly over him. It took a few days, but eventually we got one that met all the requirements. Then we used one of the numerous free online websites that resize and crop your photo to the right dimensions, and finally printed it at Kmart for about 20c.

    For the pic we lay DD on a white bed sheet and then basically took about a million photos until it was right lol then just photoshopped out any shadows (from hubby hovering over her with the camera lol). Used editor to crop and resize to passport image size and then printed at office works

    They still have fairly rigid rules for babies:

    Eyes open
    Looking straight ahead
    Mouth closed
    Neutral expression (not frowning, smiling, laughing, crying)
    Both ears visible

    I would just take bub somewhere professional to get them done, DS was about 3 months old when we got his and they just lay him down on a white sheet then stood over him with a digi camera and took heaps until they got one. It was about $30.

    Goodness knows what they did before digital cameras!
