I'm trying to apply for refugee travel document. I'm currently in the United States. Do I need to submit photographs for my refugee travel document if I'm applying from the United States?
This is what it says on the website
"If you are outside the United States and filing for a Refugee Travel Document, or if you are in the United
States and filing for an Advance Parole Document:
You must submit 2 identical color photographs of yourself taken within 30 days of the filing of this application. "
Am I understanding it right? It only applies for those who are outside the United States only (for RTD)?
You would need to submit photographs in compliance with instruction. Do not forget to write your name and your A number behind the photos. Good luck
You need to submit two photographs either way.
Mr. Shusterman's (former INS Trial Attorney, 1976-82) response to your question is general in nature, as not all the facts are known to him. You should retain an attorney experienced in immigration law to review all the facts in your case in order to receive advice specific to your case. Mr. Shusterman's statement above does not create an attorney/client relationship.
Yes. Common sense dictates submitting two recent passport photographs for a federal I-131 as described in its instructions.
