Default Medical photos quantity!

Hi I'm a British citizen and have my medical booked soon (within Canada) for an out of Canada spousal PR application. My question is will I need to take 8 photos along with me to the medical ( I have a feeling it's 4) and why do immigration require so many? Thanks!

How many photos does it say to take in the checklist?

At first I couldn't find it anywhere but I now see that it's 8. I do wonder why they require so many though?

Document checklist doesn't mention how many for the medical. I'm trying to remember how many I took with me, but I have a feeling it was between 6 - 8. I know it was quite a few, that's for sure.

You could call the office where you are having the medial and ask them, as they're on the panel for this they should know the requirements.

As for why so many, I think that it's because each test or document will need a photo, for example, the main form needs one, X-ray probably need one, and possibly bloodwork and other things need them. I'd guess it's so they can ensure the results of the tests are for the correct person.

I just double checked the UK checklist and it doesn't actually say... My apologies for that! However I went back and checked the notes I made when we booked my husband's medical, here's what I'd written down:

download Appendix C form from website - bring in that form, passport, and 4 passport-sized photos (UK sized),
3 days notice to change or cancel (fee of £50)
Best bet is to call the office you're going to to clarify - they'll know 100%.

Just returned from the medical and the doctor needed 5 photos. If I hadn't enough he said he could of photocopied them but immigration do prefer the originals! I just need to find out how many I need for the application now.?

8 for the application, that one is clearly written in the checklist.

I was told 5 when I booked my appointment. However when I went in the DMP only used 4, he double checked everything to make sure he hadnt missed any spaces for photos.
maybe it depends on the application, the office I went to didnt do too many outland applications, maybe the outland requires one less than the regular ones they do?
