Dumb question about passport photos

#1

Post by discoqueen » Fri Apr 13, 2012 8:33 am

When getting your packet ready to send in, the CHL-6 says to "Place your photographs in a separate, sealed envelope. Write your name on the envelope and include it with your submitted materials."

Do I cut the passport photos apart, or leave them as they came off the printer?

And while I'm asking dumb questions :mrgreen: ......... should I put everything in a 9x12 envelope or try to cram it all in a regular legal/letter size envelope?

(I never thought paperwork would cause me this much thought! LOL)

Thanks!

I always instruct my students to carefully cut them out. I do this:
1. to eliminate any potential interpretation issues (DPS clerk: "This is not two photographs; it is one photograph with two inked sections.") and
2. so they fit in a small #6-3/4 envelope inside the student's packet.

LOL So it sounds like it doesn't matter then!

On one hand, I don't want to cut them "wrong".....on the other hand, I don't want my plastic to get delayed because someone at DPS can't find their scissors! :biggrinjester:

Thanks, you two! I'm just going to leave them alone, do what the instructions say, and mail everything in a big envelope. Trying to get this in the mail today!

Congrats on completing your application. BTW, it's always easier to cut it later than trying to reattach the fibers on a microscopic level. :mrgreen:
