Passport Website Rejects Asian Man's Photo for Having 'Closed' E

A man of Asian background had his passport photo rejected by a New Zealand government website because it's facial recognition software registered his eyes as being closed. Richard Lee was trying to renew his passport so he could return to Australia from New Zealand after Christmas on Monday but received an awkward error message when he submitted his picture to Internal Affairs's online passport photo checker. The automated system told the 22-year-old DJ, who is currently studying Aerospace Engineering and Business Management in Melbourne, that his eyes were closed, despite them being quite obviously open.
