Giving her the bank certificate instead of passbook.

VO: The passbook is what I need!

VO: Looked at the passbook and was checking the transaction!
(And after that she started typing and I started praying to god) Then she asked me this!!!

VO: Have you been to AFGHANISTAN?
No ma’am no!

By this time I was sure that I was confident in saying everything and wasn't hesitant about anything. Then she told this
VO: Your visa is approved!
I thought she would say congrats and I would be smiling and saying thank you but nothing like that happened over here(So I told thank you to her and asked like a boss

ME: When will i be receiving the passport?

VO: within 3-5 days boi!
Allrite ma'am.

So let me brief up about today's situation! As today was Tuesday very few people showed up at the consulate. By the time I was done with my interview (12:10) the consulate was empty. I was looking everywhere but I found no one to be present. Then I realized that many people might not have booked because it's Tuesday and also it was Hyderabad consulate. To be honest! My family member were too tensed about the Tuesday thing and also regarding documents but remember one thing ! Hardwork , Confidence and Determination is what you need to clear the interview. For me it was like a survey going on).

PS: My passport status is being displayed as Administrative processing. Is it same for everyone once there passport is approved or else is it some other case. No technical questions were asked even though I was prepared for it.
