I thought it's passport photograph. Na wa. Thank God for consulting you people.

I'm in a really hot soup as I only have 2 pictures of me and my mum together.. The rest are destroyed beyond recognizable state.

May God help me..

What if I upload a recent picture of me alone
If so can just use a picture taken by my phone

That is okay, also if you have picture of your mom and father or your mom and other siblings include those....as well as picture of you and your father, picture of you and those same siblings....group and family pictures are okay.

You can annotate the pictures to indicate who is who and since your application details already contain the names of all your siblings and father, annotating the pictures with these names, even you are not in the pictures, will show the family linkage and connection.

Also, you can include selection letters/emails between you and mom, especially the ones that dated back before filing of the petitions and some afterwards and recent....nothing really much, 5-7 of such emails are enough.

Remember, your goal is to show by all the evidences you are presenting to a third party that does not know anything about you that....your mom is your mom. Some people have also submitted proof of constant remittances from their sponsors/parents abroad....all these goes to show a relationship.

You should be okay though, even many without pictures and all these proof have scaled....las las, if there is no proof, it may just delay your application for a few months as they may just ask for a DNA test...but at the end of the day, you will pull through.

Pictures of you alone does not proof any relationship and truly of no value.

Firstly, I can't even thank you enough for the insight you've given me

I suppose by annotating you mean I should add a comment in the comment box signifying whoever is on the picture I'm about to upload.

Lastly, can I just snap these hardcopies pictures with my phone and upload??

Apologies if there's any questions that sound stupid..

Thanks

Yes, you can snap pictures, scan them or do whatever to them to convert them to digital versions, but remember to preserve the originals and take those with you to the interview in case they ask to see them.

If you are using a computer to prepare your documents, get the pictures into the PC and copy and past them into MS Paint, you can then use Paint to do the annotation at the bottom of the picture...you can place a numbering or lettering for the family members e.g. mom, dad, siblings, yourself on the picture and at the bottom callout names corresponding to your numbering or lettering. If they are not much, there may not be the need to number, just stare at the bottom something like:

“Left-to-Right: Mom(Petitioner), Chika (my eldest brother), Myself. At the wedding ceremony of my brother Chika in Lagos in May 1990.

Then save the MS Paint image as a file, then move on to annotate others. You can after everything collect all in the images into a single pdf document. There are many online tools that will help you to merge image files into a single pdf document, just do some google.

All in all, keep the originals with you and go to interview with them.

Photographs needed in this case is your 2 by 2 passport photographs, you can go online and make your research. What ever you want to upload let the passport be there. Ensure you do it right, if not, after waiting for weeks they decline the documents and require you to re upload. Don't forget you have just 2mb for each civil documents. You can always go to the embassy with other photographs including the passport as well. Do not make mistakes, confirm online. Your passport is what is needed at this stage.

I humbly beg to disagree with you.

They require pictures that will prove ur relationship with the sponsor (including chat and call logs), not 2x2 passport photo.

In the end it's all about the person reviewing the submitted documents. While I have seen people get NVC ref for failing to upload photo proofs, I am yet to see anyone get a ref for failing to upload a passport photo.

I have seen people uploading passport photos and normal photos and all getting accepted.

I have personally done more than 5 NVC submissions with the most recent submission which has been accepted and DQ last month and have never uploaded passport photo under ‘Photographs’.

The session for Passport BIO will already include the passport photo of the applicant and you will also go to the interview with passport photo, so I use this section to upload photos that show family ties.

If you are in doubts, you can add a passport photo to mix.... NVC did not provide any instructions on this in their FAQ....but a little hint! That section said “Photograph[b]s[/b]....note the plural and not just Photograph as in singular and in places when they need passport sized photographs, they have gone in great lengths to include the prefix “Passport”.

It is specifically said to take the two colored passport photographs to the interview with you, and no instructions to upload them to NVC, but you can also upload them as well.

The picture I attached above are the compulsory documents I'm supposed to upload as civil documents for me the applicant. That's where I'm confused as to whether to upload a passport photograph or just normal picture..

Nevertheless I Know I can always upload anything other documents I want below in the supporting documents.

But these four are kinda like mandatory I think.
1 Passport biographic data page
2 Police character clearance
3 Birth Certificate
4 Photograph (which is the bone of contention)

Bro, @ the bolded no further explanation is required. I fully understand and support your stance now.

They would have specifically stated passport photograph if that's what they needed. And it wouldn't have been in plurals.

Thanks again for your insight

Please house I'm currently uploading my documents. I just want to know if my sponsor's drivers license or tax papers can be uploaded as proof of domicile.

If not I'd like for you guys to suggest which other documents can used .

Secondly, can I upload pictures of me and my sponsor together or should I just wait to present it at the interview.

Lastly, in the picture below, is it passport photograph I'm to upload or normal picture

NVC does not need to see your engagement pictures what are they doing with it they need your passport photo to attach to your DS260 forms It is the embassy that is intrested in seeing your engagement or any photograph that shows you and your spouses. NVC does not have any business with any photograph apart from passport photo on a white background.
Re: At The NVC Processing Stage Of The U. S Family Based Preference Category. by Ifeanyichukwu42: 3:14am On Jun 08
You guys are just confusing yourself what is the function of NVC, who determines whether an applicant get a visa . They function of NVC is to make sure that they documents are well filled etc before sending the file to the embassy for interview your faith lies with the consular and not NVC.
Re: At The NVC Processing Stage Of The U. S Family Based Preference Category. by Ifeanyichukwu42: 3:17am On Jun 08
Take your pictures to the embassy NVC does not need it what NVC deals with is passport photograph on a white background. I leave in the united states people have gone through this process what they uploaded to NVC is passport photograph.

In Nigeria it is stated clearly as passport photograph but here it is photograph . That is the problem between the British English and American English which is contradictory to the British English.

Ain't you filling out Ds260 forms dont you know that their is a position on the form to attach a passport photo. Is it because this things are done on line now .10 yrs ago you are expected to print out this forms and fill it out and attach 2 passport photographs with a clip not stapled.

See hen when you go online you will see what nvc mean by photographs on their site. They even explained how it should be taken. If the nvc wants supporting documents they will ask for it. But if it's your family photographs you want to upload let's see how it works, we learn every day.

Thank you Bake for solving the puzzle . NVC does not need your family photographs or your traditional marriage photographs what NVC needs is your 2x2 passport photograph. It is the man in that small cubicle at the embassy that might ask you of photography's to convince him that you deserve to be issued a visa he is the decider together with the Supervisor at the embassy that determines if you will get a visa.
