I have applied for an F1 visa. After being interviewed by the visa officer, they said my visa is approved and gave me a blue leaflet. They didn't say anything about administrative processing.
Here is a point to be noted. At the time of the interview I had failed to provide a recent photograph; the photograph I provided is more than 6 months old. There was a person who initially checked every document and mentioned that the photo was not recent. I said I didn't have enough time, hence I couldn't manage my recent photograph. The person said not to worry, that I could submit one later.
When I arrived home, I received a mail requesting me to "please be advised to submit new photographs (2 copies) taken within the last six months, along with a copy of this email, at your pre-selected document collection center." On the next working day, I submitted a recent photograph, as requested.
Now when I am checking my status, it states "REFUSED".
Should I be worried?
