It's valid for 1 year, and that's $50 plus 500p express lane fee. I don't see why it's a liberty the UK ID if it ever arrives was going to be about 90.

They took the photo for my card. Just used one of mine for the visa waiver extension application.

However the local photo shop took and printed 20 2x2 photos for me for 200p so why not have enough to last a while?

I keep the extra in my passport wallet just in case. I have carried this size photo with me in many countries because you never know when you will need one at immigration or some other government office.

Especially for just 200P....I like being prepared also.

how many photos did they require for the acr-card and visa extn application? was the card done at the same time?

See above They take the picture for the card and you provide one for the visa extension application. At least that was my experence.

Of course in the Philippines YMMV

When I got mine, no photos were required for extension or ACR card. They used my passport photo for the ACR ( I guess they scanned it ).

Now the extension application requires a 2 X 2 so they probably use that one. Bring an extra to be safe.

Photos are dirt cheap, as mentioned. The Photoline chain is at most malls. I just got 8 2X2 and 4 1X1 for p80.

was the acr card done and given to you at the same time with the visa extension? where did you extend in manila?

YMMV means Your Mileage May Vary. Basically, what can be done at one office in the Philippines may not necessarily be what can be done at another.
