Yes, Philippine passport size is different from US passport size. Ours is rectangular (don't really know the exact measurements). You will probably get an RFE for that.

I did not send a 2X2 (yes the size was smaller) with the I-129F and had no issues with getting approved, for the I-129F I don't recall it specifying the photos be 2X2 just passport style. Of course for everything during the visa process I made sure she had 2X2

:thumbs: :thumbs: It may be hit or miss with the I-129F and a RFE, but the US style photograph is what they are expecting as it is a US governed document and procedure. Be prepared for 2x2 in the future steps.

It seems like they are not as picky as they make out on the forms. But also, any mall in Manila has a photo store, and all of them take pictures for US Visa size. And they're super cheap. If you're worried, have her go to any of them, and get 20 US Visa Photos. Will cost you a few dollars. And you'll need them several times, at the interview, for the medical, etc. Better to get a bunch that are the right size.
