Photograph Requirements

UPNG is taking steps to reduce queues and fast track student ID card processing during registration. Students are required to email a passport-sized photograph (or a selfie) prior to registration. The photograph can be a scanned image, or be taken by a mobile phone or digital camera.

Guidelines for Taking Photographs

  • Use a camera with the best resolution possible (12 Megapixels or greater);
  • Select a well-lit area, with a plain (or preferably light blue) background;
  • Photographs should be clear, sharp, and in colour;
  • Dress neatly, no hat, and no sunglasses;
  • and
  • Crop the photograph to portrait size (head and shoulders), approximately 5cm x 3.5cm.

Submitting your Details and Photographs

  • After taking your photograph, attach your full name and student ID, and email to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.;
  • New students must submit their photographs prior to arriving on campus;
  • and
  • Continuing students must also submit a new photograph. Otherwise, the previous year's photograph will be used.
