Ok - so i had my photo taken at Mildenhall base - people in the military go there for passport photos, spouses go there for visa photos and I assumed that as it's the us govenment that have these people on the base (an american company) that they would do it right. Everything looked good - got my 2 passport pictures taken for $5.75 and now I've checked the photo spec and it says about having to have 1/2 inch between the top of the photo and the top of my head - but there is just over 1/4 inch space! Does this mean they wont accept this photo? My fiance got his passport picture taken there and his was accepted and when i was there i asked if anyone had been turned away with the photos they take and they said no. What u guys think?

You should be ok as those places get a lot of business and if they were getting rejected, customers would have already said somehting. I took mine on the current base I am at and no rejections... BTW I have a government and civilian passport with pics from the same place. Good luck Payato.

My recollection is that is way down the list. The errors that seem to matter include incorrect head position (ears not visible), shadowing and background color.


YMMV

You should be just fine. Don't panic. :) It's just a guideline, that measurement.

On a personal note, I've spent time at Mildenhall. A friend of mine was stationed at the base as a psychologist. I was on base several times over the last two or three years when I would skip across the Channel from Paris to visit she and her husband for holidays and whatnot. Happy memories... :)


January 2004: Met Laurent at the Bibliothèque nationale in Paris

February 2004: We became an actual couple

January 29th, 2006: I left France to return to the United States--AWFUL to say goodbye!

June 2006: Finally convinced Laurent that a K-1 visa would be more time-effective than trying to get an H-1

August 1st, 2006: The K-1 petition is finally in the mail and on its way to Nebraska...WooHoooo!! And yes, I remembered to attach the check! :-)

August 3rd, 2006: USPS online tracking shows that my petition (sent certified) was received at the NSC at 5:05am

August 14th, 2006: NOA1 received USPS!! (I-129F recv'd at CSC: 8/4; NOA date: 8/10; last touched: 8/11)

October 2nd, 2006: I MISTAKENLY thought we had an approval...False alarm...Back to waiting...

October 3rd, 2006: TOUCHED!!

October 4th, 2006: REALLY AND TRULY APPROVED!!! Email notification lists 10/3 as the NOA2 date.

Later that same day: TOUCHED...AGAIN! Hope that means I'm in a cozy box and moving to NVC this week...

October 10th, 2006: Received official NOA2 via snail mail.

October 19th, 2006: Case received at NVC!! AWESOME!!

October 20th, 2006: Case forwarded to Paris!! DHL says two shipments were headed that way. Must be in there somewhere...

October 27th, 2006: Received official receipt letter from NVC via USPS.
