Fill in your complete address which will include the house number, street, city, state, and zip code.

It would be like this:

To piggy back on this topic... We were unaware we even needed to file a report of marriage form until recently. My question is about this requirement:

a. Four (4) identical colored photographs of the husband and the wife, 1.77 in x 1.37 in, plain white background, taken within six months before the date of application, (Blurred or low quality photos are not accepted).

Where can you get photographs this size, here in the United States? I know we all live in different places, but what kind of place did some of you go to get photos that meet this requirement? And if anyone in the Dallas/Ft.Worth area can answer, that would be great.

Thanks

We sent in the 2x2 anyway since there was no place that offered the specific size the embassy wanted. Had no issues with the whole thing.
