Hello,

I wanted to start by saying thank you to all of the people on this forum. The information here is so helpful!

My wife and I have been able to pay the AOS and IV fees, and we've submitted her DS-260 online. The next step is to ship off the documents. I just two quick questions if I may:

1 - the document checklist shows that two photos of the applicant (my wife) are required, can these be the same size as the ones that we submitted with the IV-130?

2 - after we submitted the DS-260 online it said "remember to bring two photos to the interview..." among other things. Does that mean that we need 4 photos in total? 2 to go with the supporting documents, and an additional 2 to be submitted at the time of interview?

Thank you so much for any response!

You didn't need to send 2 with the supporting documents. You should also check to see if you need any for the medical.

They need to be US passport size as per the NVC website.

Thank you all for the responses.

NLR,

You didn't need to send 2 with the supporting documents. You should also check to see if you need any for the medical.

I read on this link http://travel.state.gov/content/visas/english/immigrate/immigrant-process/documents/submit/documents-to-submit-to-nvc.htmlthat we are supposed to send 2 photographs along with the documents. Are you saying that we only need 2 for either the medical or interview? We haven't sent the documents off just yet, so there's time to put a stop to the idea if they're not required.

I understand now about the 2x2 sizing requirements. I'm still just a little confused on how many to prepare.

Any other responses would also be greatly appreciated! Thank you.

Yeah we also had to send two american size passport style photos with the supporting documents for my IV application.

I also need one photo for the interview.

I think the amount of photos for the medical depends on how it's setup, i.e. if you do the x-ray at the clinic. I needed one photo for the clinic that did the x-ray and then two photos for the clinic that did the actual medical exam.

Each panel physician in Canada requires a differemt number, either 3 or 5. The number of photos varies by doctor and should be asked in your regional forum OR better yet, to the panel physician the medical is booked with. Info from other countries really is moot. But as you don't have a country flag, everyone tries to help.

For instance, with an EP country you cannot email the photos so you have to bring them. Like I did.

This is why supplying a country in your profile, at the least, and a timeline, helps us, help you. :)
