  3. Hey! Thank you SO much, very helpful!! I did all that and I noticed it requests a digital photo to be submitted but on the check list to extend my stay it didnt say I needed a photo other than my passport of course. Can I just take a picture with my phone and upload that? Also, what is this photo for, just for my profile or for my application also? Not sure if you know about that but if you do feel free to enlighten me! Thank you again :)
     
  4. Its a normal procedure to include a passport photograph with any application. And yes you can take a passport photograph with your phone and upload it, alternatively if you have a passport photograph you can scan it and upload it as well
     
  5. The photo they requested is equally important as all other documents are in order to process your application. they have mentioned the required dimension, resolution and file format etc.. so it is always better to meet all the requirements to avoid any delays in the processing of your application.
    you can upload a picture taken from your phone as far it meets the requirements. if it doesn't they will ask you to upload new photo of yours which will result in delay of processing. so better to get a original photo from a studio.(investing 7-8 dollars and 10 minutes might save you from delays)
    Note: you can check the photo requirements by clicking on the -?- next to where they have asked to upload the photo
     
  6. I had my photo taken at a passport studio, it cost around $11.00. I went to Shoppers Drug Mart (in Canada) photo studio. If you are in the states you can go to any place that takes passport photos, it doesn't have to be an expensive studio. example, Walgreens, Walmart, etc... I brought the required dimensions to the studio and she had a template that she used to cut it down to the correct size. Then I scanned my photo and attached the file with my online application.

    I hope this helps!
     
  7. I seemed to have missed one or two steps. I did got the code, but I was not asked to use it when I signed in.
    However, I have completed to upload all documents, but could not find the step to submit them!
    Could you kindly give me some suggestions?

    Thank you.
