This question already has an answer here:
The Chinese embassy in Australia publishes a very strict set of guidelines regarding acceptable passport photos. They vary subtly but distinctly from the rules for regular passport photos in Australia: for example, the photo must be 33x48mm (vs min. 35x45mm), height of head must be 28-33mm (vs 32-36 mm), etc.
In practice, are regular 35x45mm Australian passport photos accepted? Or do I really need to go get a separate set just for this?
