Apply for an Oyster photocard
Create a web account
You'll need to create a web account before you can apply for an Oyster photocard.
To create a web account you will need to provide an active email address, your name, address, date of birth and phone number. We need your date of birth so we can confirm, as the web account holder, you're aged 18 or over.
Once the web account has been created, you'll be able to apply online for an Oyster photocard.

For applicants aged under 18, a parent or guardian must create the web account. Applicants who are aged 18 must create their own web account.
To apply online, you'll need:
- A colour, digital photo of the applicant
- A credit or debit card to pay the £10 administration fee. (If you live in London you can still apply online without one)
You'll also be asked to provide details from the applicant's machine readable passport. You can still apply online if you don't have these details.
