Photos for the K-1 Visa Interview?

5 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

My Fiance's interview is tomorrow and I am finding myself paniked about a few last min details. mainly being he only has one photo. we sent a set of photos with the original application, another set with our packet 3 and finally this one. but it was going to cost us 20$ more for the place we found to do 5 photos instead of 4 (because we needed 3 for the medical) and I figured that since we had already sent them 2 sets of photos we should be fine... should I be searching for a 24hr pharmacy to get him in for photos?

I've decided I'm going to go get the photos based on this quote I found on the embassy of USA Samoa website "Photos that do not conform to the specifications below will not be accepted and applicants will be required to provide new ones. This may lead to significant delays in visa processing." I assume not providing the number of requested photos is outside the specifications so to be on the safe side Im sending him to the closest 24hr pharmacy (only one in Montreal)

The Montreal instructions state you need to bring 2 passport photos to the interview, so I would do so.

I'd bring 2 just to be on the safe side. I brought 2 and they didn't take them from me, but it's better to be safe than sorry in case they do ask for them.
