Default How many passport photos should I get in total?

Hi,
I'm just starting out on the arduous task of filling out all the forms required for permanent residence in Canada as a spouse.
I'm going to get some passport photos done specially tomorrow, it seems you need 8 for the application plus 2 for the medical... such a lot of photos, is this correct?
Oh and I'll also need another one for the police check, bringing the running total to 11...

How many should I get printed?

I think it is different depending on whether you are doing inland or outland. My other half applied from the UK - we had 8 for application, plus 5 for the medical (although we got 2 of those back again) and then 1 for the police check.

We just got the passport request and 2 more are required!!

I think we ended up getting 18 because we went to Jessops and they only do them in batches of 6. Jessops was really expensive though so I wouldn't recommend them!

I'm applying from the UK, so I suppose if I get 16 that should cover it.
My local photo place does 4 for £5, which seems about average as far as I can tell. So thats £20 on passport photos, I'm off to a flying start!

We have 3 left over from our 18 - so yep, 16 should cover it!

I think Jessops was closer to £40 - ouch! But we were in a hurry and the Snappy Snaps we were aiming for had closed down!

That makes £20 sound like a bargain!

Thanks for the replies

My sister just got two each for herself and family then scanned them and printed them onto photo paper and she has just had her medical requests!
