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.

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.

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.
