Passport photos in plastic bag, attach to sheet of paper ?

12 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I had a question about the passport photos placed in a plastic bag and attached to a sheet of paper ? Does someone have an example of this ? I was married in Spain in February and we are starting the spousal visa. I live in Texas. She seems to think we can do this without hiring a lawyer or using a visa service. We will be asking questions here, so please be ready for a few questions lol. Thanks, Jack

What I did was upload them online to a site that you can organize them.I'm one 8x10 then pay to have it sent to you on the 8x10 photo. I had about 4 pictures on every photo and submitted 3 8x10 photos that contained about 12 pictures so together. The pictures were of us together, me with her family, and all of us together. It worked out great and I would highly suggest doing that instead of sending actual photos because you will.not.get them backx.

Just use any of those tiny ziploc bags, put PP photos inside and paperclip to the form. In fact i had simply clipped the photos themselves to the form without any bag. Use paper clips not staples.

Thanks, I thought it might be just a sandwich bag. 

That's what we did, sandwich bags are good size for passport style photos.

 

You just staple the bag to a paper sheet. It'll be harder from them to lose your photos that way, and when in a bag they can easily turn the bag around to see the name on the back of the photo.

OP is talking about the passport photos required, not evidence photos.

 

We just used simple sandwich pages with a white label sticker to write the name on it.

They want the NAME on the back of the actual photos, not the sandwich bag.  In this case, a staple is fine.  They are going to remove it, then take the photos out of the bag.  The reason for the bag and staple to full sheet, is to prevent the photos from being lost in the process of opening your package and building their file.

Place the photos (labeled appropriately with your names on the back) into a sandwich bag or small Ziploc bag, then staple that bag to a sheet of paper. I used a thicker card stock material so that the weight of the bag wouldn't make the sheet flop around. I also wrote "Photos of [INSERT NAME]" in black marker on the bag itself, but I don't think that's totally necessary.
