Up until 3 hours back, I wasn’t intending to attend QCS since my visa was expected to arrive late. We have 15 working days waiting period here just to get to the visa interview phase. My tickets were booked for the 19th June to Berlin nevertheless for a Qt Media Hub hackfest. I attended the visa interview yesterday and mentioned that it would be great if they could give me visa for the 16th Jun. They wanted rebooked hotel and plane booking in under 20 mins and a german invite (The english invite left them wondering why a certain Alexandra from Oslo is inviting me to a conference in Germany)! The only internet parlor I found nearby was hopeless and I returned back home.
Incredibly, the German consulate was kind enough to not only send me my visa a couple of hours of back but they also gave me a visa starting from 16th June! With very many things working to my favor (like just a 100 EUR rescheduling fee for the ticket), I am very happy to say I will arrive on 16th afternoon!
