Passport renewal how many photos
hello Gurus, please help with the below questions:
1) How many total photos I need to send with the passport renewal (SFO jurisdiction, Normal process).
1 ea for Passport application form (Indian Govt. form)
1 ea for Change of appearance.
2 ea additional photos per checklist. While the bottom bullet points in the checklist instructions says 3 total to send. so it is not adding the math.
If I follow the checklist, it is 5 in total or 4 total.

2) To add spouse name to passport, do I need to send marriage certificate? Even though checklist did not ask for it.

Passport renewal at DC
All documents submitted to CKGS on 31-Dec-2019. Passport is pending with the D.C. embassy since then. I was hoping it would take only a couple of weeks because I have to travel out of the country for work next month. But no updates so far. I didn't expect the embassy to be this slow. Any idea what is going on?

Atlanta Consulate Passport Renewal
Requests: Spouse name addition
                  Change of Address in India
                  Change of printed address on passport (USA address)

I was fretting over not having submitted marriage registration proof or spouse's passport copy (because it was not mentioned in the list of documents).

I must say, I am impressed. (And thank God, because I have out of country travel plans mid March)

Passport Renewal at Houston
I sent mine in on Jan 23. it is at the consulate now. Let's track our cases. Please reply below with your submission date and current status. Thanks!

I want to add my spouse's name to my passport and the checklist did not ask for any proof. Later once the passport was with the consulate, CKGS folks contacted me for marriage license copy and spouse passport copy. So bizarre!
