Any idea how many pics are really required?

VJ only says 2; USCIS for each form for AOS, EAD, and AP say 2 for each; that's 6.

Assume you send in all three together: how many?

Don't the three get sent to different places for respective processing and need the 2 per?

well, i guess i missed the bit here that said 2 as i sent 6. i went by the individual instructions for each application and provided what was required for each. when i mailed it all in, i clipped the documentation for each application and then clipped the cover letter on top and them all together.

i'd rather be safe than sorry! (although i'll be sorry having to look at that pic for a long time - it was bad!)

they received it all on Friday so the waiting game begins. again.

Thanks, Everyone!!!

That's what I thought: VisaJourney's step-by-step instructions are incorrect.

It should be per application, not 2 for the whole package to the lockbox.

Larry and Maria,

I don't see anything wrong with the VJ Guide for applying to adjust status.....

Where do you see that the Guide says 2 photos for AOS, EAD, and AP combined?

You should treat each application seperately. AOS 2, EAD 2, & AP 2. Six in total if you are appliying for all three.

Larry and Maria,

Correct - for the I-485 package, 2 passport-type photos as specified in item 11.

Now look at items 15 and 16 on the list. If you want to include I-765 or I-131, "Include any additional required supporting documentation or photos as well as payment as noted here."

The VJ Guide says, 2 for I-485 plus whatever is required for I-765 and I-131 if you submit those two applications as well. It does not say or imply 2 photos for all 3 applications.
