My US passport has expired. I have filled out the forms and have booked a pickup/delivery with DX Services for Tuesday.
It looks like four (4) staples are required. I haven't used a stapler in years, and I don't even know if there's one in my office. Do I actually have to go find a stapler and staple it 4 times?
I don't want to damage the photo and have my application refused on the basis of a damaged photo.
Question: do I actually have to staple my photo in the designated places? Or am I reading this wrong and there's a different way to submit one's photo?
Secondarily: if the answer above is 'yes', do I have to use some kind of American standard staple? Or will a UK standard staple be OK? The guidance, for example, says that A4 paper is OK (and I am thankful for that). They are so picky and persnickety about everything in a way that questions such as these are relevant.
