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.

Applying online

The parent or guardian must create the web account and apply online for their child.

You'll need:

  • A colour, digital photo of the applicant
  • A credit or debit card to pay the 10.00 administration fee. (If you live in London you can still apply online without one)

You may 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.
