USCIS clarified the photo requirements for the filing of the adjustment of status and its ancillary benefits in a teleconference with AILA Liaison on February 27, 2013 :
The adjustment of status applications should include six photos in total per applicant, if all three forms listed below are filed:
- Two for the I-485 Application to Adjust Status
- Two for the I-131 Application for Travel Document
- Two for the I-765 Application for Employment Authorization.
This clarification reflects a change from earlier USCIS guidance provided in the 7/12/2012 NSC stakeholder call, and 8/8/2012 SCOPS minutes, in which USCIS had indicated only two photos would be required in total per applicant.
