Inconvenience/ crisis avoided! I called the consulate today and they said that my visa is indeed ready for pick up. Woo hoo! So this technical problem really was resolvable. I wonder if it was only me this happened to? The woman I spoke to recognized my name and said she had talked to the woman I spoke to earlier about my visa which makes it seem only my photo and fingerprints were involved. Weird.. Nonetheless I’m relieved it was a simple thing in the end! Usually it takes a week for the visa to be ready, for me it took two weeks- which is far from being traumatic as it’s not yet September and no flight is being risked. I repeat, boys and girls, this is why you book your visa appointment as early as you think you’ll have your arrêté!! Be prepared!
