We sent 6.

I don't quite understand why they're necessary, since the EAD serves as a combo AP card, and I think they even take a digital photo at biometrics, but hey, you do what is asked and don't ask questions. Six it is.

Reason you send 6 is that it is asked for 2 for each form and also it is not guaranteed that same department will be processing the paper work so better have the pics with their respective forms in case they are separated.
