I'm struggling to know how to submit them amongst all the paperwork because they are a much smaller size than the other documents.

Did you guys list the passport photos on the contents page as well?

Thanks.
We put them in an envelope, wrote "passport-style photos applicant (4x)" on it and attached it to the relevant section using a paperclip.
We also listed them in our table of contents.

I believe 100 pics is way too much

As Rheia has said, I found leaving the photos in the envelope given to me by the place that took them was the most logical way to keep them together and made it obvious what they were to the CO.

Many thanks. I'll submit them in the paper bag they came in from the store that printed them.

One more question regarding the photos. Did you cut them into individual photos or did you submit them 'as is' in the same condition when you got them (4 photos attached together)?

Another question. When did you guys pay for the Visa application fee? Did you pay before or after you posted the application to immigration? How did you pay, was it in person or over the phone?

I'll pay the Visa application fee by credit card.

Thank you.

They deduct it from the credit card once they receive the application. Usually the first thing that happens before you get any other notification that they have received the application.

One thing worth noting is the fees should be applicable to the date the embassy receives the application, not the date of sending.
We paid and sent the application with the package of evidence on 23-August, on 1-September there was an increase in fees, the embassy got the application on 2-September.
It caused a bit of delay until they asked for the addition fees and updated the application as valid, and they only sent us acknowledgement letter on 17-September.
So, be aware of fees changes.

Many thanks people. Im getting really nervous, we are so close. We think we have prepared well. We believe we got everything they need, just a few small touches.

Oh boy, this is the most exciting yet most stressful thing i have ever done in my life. I've worked, I've been at university, but this is on another level in terms of stress.

I know exactly how you feel.

We sent our application off on Saturday and I was actually starting to shake while queuing at the post office. I still can't believe it's gone & it's out there, to be closely examined and judged...

It actually ended up weighing over 2kg and the nice lady at the post office recommended we take some papers out to make it lighter so we wouldn't have to pay so much. I was like "hell, no! no way I'm taking even a single piece of paper out of it".
