Because you are asking a "how long is a piece of string" question. Every office has it's own idea of what you need. Take a few and be pleasantly surprised if you have enough/to many. The card will be processed at the same time but don't expect to walk away with it in your pocket.

According to the BI website you need 2 2x2 pictures. In Iloilo I needed 2 pictures. At your office... your mileage may vary. After applying for the card I had to come back 3 weeks later to pick it up (turned into almost 6 weeks before it actually came back). When I got my 2nd ACR it was the same procedure again.

...hmm... cannot post the link... (new member) Well here is the listed requirements...

Another place to check for inexpensive full color photo's is Tronix...I just got 8 2x2's and 8 1x1s for 60php for the total package...upstairs in the Harrison Plaza Mall, right behind the Manila Zoo.

Every time I turn around some agent or official is asking me for another photo...

Hi, on #2 above. I'm applying for my first ACR card in a few months. I'm in the Balikbayan program now. Do I have to get #2 ? If I do how do I go about that? Thanks in advance. Charlie

Here are some links you won't need a Visa it's a date stamped in your passport only.

You don't need an ACR card but if you want one it's labeled as Voluntary Application for ACR I Card Voluntary Application for ACR I-Card

Here's another link so your ACR card will be marked as Voluntary Registrant and on this link 4-f has a listing of the Balikbayan as a Voluntary Registrant and the color of your card will be red and most get these cards for opening up bank accounts, Internet or hooking up electricity the Philippine Government also recommends that anyone living here past 6 months should get an ACR card. ACR I-Card

Hi Hogrider,
I found out that #2 is done at BI when we apply for the ACR.
