Man. I think you need like 20... 4 with each application form. But on a sidenote, they dont require those OFFICIAL PASSPORT photographs that walmart/walgreen does with the special background, angle etc. They just want passport SIZE photographs with a similar profile. So just take some with your digital camera with a bedsheet behind you, resize on your computer and make a sheet have it printed out as a regular 4x6, print and cut. Or you can just use regular school pictures dude

Get it done anywhere where it's cheap all IBCC require is 4x6 size with a plain background and that's it.

Well this is what i did and it worked for me, so maybe it will work for you too...I sent only 2 photos and i got them made at Eckerd for $15 dollars. Not that bad. I did not attach them with the application or anything I just put them in an envelope it came with. That's it.

The HEC guy told me one picture per application pasted were ok for now. You can get 12 passport size pictures in Islamabad for 155 rupeees (heavily photoshopped too, they love removing all your acne marks watever and making your skin 5 tones lighter on the computer before making a negative) hah

I applied during the summer of this year, I remember getting about 24 or so passport-sized pictures, and I had like one extra left over. That's after filling out applications for the IBCC, Technical Assistance through the EAD, and Self-Finance through the HEC. If you're planning on going through the same procedure, I'd recommend about 30 (maybe just a few less, but 30's safe, you never know when they my want more pictures of you!). You might have a few extras left over, but better safe than sorry, right?
