How your photo is used

The participating store sends your photo to the Department of Internal Affairs, who check it against other photographic records of you (like your passport photo). Your photo is only used to verify your identity within RealMe - you won't get a copy of it, but you can view it in your RealMe profile.

Participating Stores

Not all PostShops are set up to take your photo - you can go to any of the stores listed below.
