Digital ID codes Expiry date – How long do they last for?

The UK Government states that all Digital ID codes should be deleted after 1 month as all Passport Photos have to be a recent photo. You are not allowed to use a Digital ID code after this period. This is because the face changes, and your Passport photo must always be a recent passport photo.

We also delete the images to to ensure GDPR compliance and to protect you, all images are deleted after this period. Most clients will get their passport photos taken again – or you can always request a Digital backup for your archive purposes and we will email this to you if you are an online customer.
