When you have your Canadian permanent resident photo produced at Reload Internet, we will provide you with a set of 4 high-quality photographs at an affordable price and they will come with a guarantee to be accepted by the Canadian authorities.

Reload Internet is a dedicated passport, visa and ID photograph studio located in Paddington, London.

We are situated on the same street as both Paddington tube and train stations only a 30 second walk from both, and we stay open throughout the week from Monday to Sunday.

We also open early in the morning, and close late into the evening, so you can come and visit us on a day and at a time that suits you.

One of our trained photographers will capture your photo with the correct background and lighting using the latest in camera technology. We will then cross-check the photograph to ensure that it meets every single one of the strict requirements requested by the Canadian Embassy. After we are satisfied that your photograph will be successful, we will print out a set of 4 for you using embassy approved digital photo printers.

Finally we will cut your Canadian permanent resident photo to the correct size, and on the back of the photographs we will state ‘I certify this to be a true likeness of (applicant’s name)’ and sign as requested in the official Canadian permanent resident photo guidelines.

You must ensure that your Canadian permanent resident photo meets all of the specifications listed below, otherwise your application will likely be rejected at the Embassy. This can cost you unnecessary amounts of time, money and stress that could be easily avoided if you visit Reload Internet, as we guarantee to get your Canadian permanent resident photo correct the first time round!
