Visa Photo

6 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Quick question -

Is it ok to just recopy a 2x2 photo taken late last year? or do we need to submit our most recent photo to SLEC?

Call me "kuripot" but with all the expenses coming our way, I am just trying to at least save a couple more pesos in case something came up and don't want to bother my husband to send more money for assistance.

Your inputs on this will be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

Believe it or not, the photo that I had taken and first used in our K1 application is the same batch of photos that I used for medical, interview and my AOS here in US. I will even use my last 2 pcs. for my Lifting of Conditions next year. :whistle::whistle::whistle: My point is, I haven't changed a lot since the pics were taken. But do whatever you think is right for you and use your better judgement. But if you have lots of photos taken before, why not use it and save some money, right? I know this advice sounds oxymoron. I kind of like stating what I did as my own experience and at the same time, didn't want others to really follow what I said. :thumbs:

Hi Mae:

Thanks for the inputs. That's also what I'm planning to do but just to be extra safe, I'll have another picture taken this week just so I can have my most recent photo ever. But I'll still keep my other photos handy in case they ask me to provide a different set of photo(s). :whistle:
