ID Photo in Changi - Instant passport photo

I've got this strange requirement, that is I need passport photographs while I was at Changi. This is for one of the country visa on arrival requirement and I am not quite sure whether the destination airport would have an instant photo booth.
First thing is try to look in internet. The popular ID Photo (Instant Photo Booth) which is very common in MRT Stations and public malls seems to be a 'missing thing' in internet.
I couldn't find their website as well as their locations. Four Square showed me there is one but when I asked the Customer Service stall @ Changi T2 they stared at me blankly. But the Guardian staff came to my rescue and Yes, There is a ID Photo booth in Changi.

The location in T2 is near the City/MRT Escalator. This is right next to the ATM's (OCBC, DBS) and you can't miss it if you walk there.
Excuse me for the bad quality of the picture as I took it in a rush :)

Understood that there is another booth @ T3 / Terminal 3 near the entrance too. T1 seems to be missing one;

    1. quality - just a passport photo. Flash is there and the skin colour is pretty fine. Not to worry much and you will be recognized by the visa/immigration officials :). Edit - Nope. Its just a passport photo

  17. Srichakra, thank you so much. 4 years after your posting and the photo booth is still there. I just took the escalator from the MRT into Terminal 2, 2 levels up, and there is was just next to the 4 ATM outlets. $7.00 SGD and 18 seconds later, I was ready for Myanmar :-)

  23. thanks for this information. it was very useful. i had this problem of trying to locate these booths myself. and i do come across them when i do not need them. i got mine taken recently at the T3 booth. it is still there. and i took down the hotline of the company that runs these booths in case anyone needs to locate one urgently in future. maybe they will have a list of all the locations. it's photomatico (s) pte ltd. 64582203. hope this helps.
