I had the appointment in August. Everything went fine, but I needed to wait for a visa. After Nov 8th I reached to the embassy and few days later received a reply that I need to send my passport. Sent it, but it is over a week now since they received it. Why I am anxious about is that I can see my case number was updated few days after they got my passport, but it still says 'refused'.
Has anyone in similar situation received his visa recently? I am afraid if they stopped the visa issuance because new restrictions are coming :-/ Also I am anxious about my passport, how long can they keep it?
