SLEC Medical Photo Ears Visible?

6 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello,

My fiance is at the SLEC getting her medical and they are demanding the passport photos have her ears visible in them. I looked at the embassy webpage requirements and it doesn't say anywhere that her ears need to be visible. In fact it has multiple examples of acceptable photos of women with hair completely covering their ears.

 

We already submitted the DS-160 with her digital passport photo and scheduled her interview. The SLEC is now making her take new photos with her ears visible, will this be a problem if her 2x2 passport photos given for the medical and embassy interview are different than the one submitted digitally for DS-160?

 

Thanks

SLEC can get carried away for sure.   There is no ears showing requirement.  

 

Here is a link to the "official" requirement  https://ph.usembassy.gov/u-s-citizen-services/passports/photos/

Yes it's crazy, I had linked her to that page of requirements before taking the photos.

 

Do you know if we will need to submit a new digital photo for the DS-160? Or is it ok if it is a different photo than the ones given to medical and the embassy on interview day?

I wouldn't worry on the DS-160 photo, it meets the requirements .. all should be good.

Showing the ears is a requirement from the DFA for the Philippines, Not for a US Passport Photo
