I have a US visa appointment in a few days, and I'll have a very minor surgery in my forehead a few days before. So I'll have somewhat of a scar and a bandage covering it. The doctor told me that it's perfectly OK to take out the bandage for a little while for the picture.
Would the workers at the ASC complain / cancel my application if I have a minor scar/wound on my face?
I doubt it (if I fall on my face while walking to my appointment, that shouldn't be cause for cancellation), but someone might know better :)
UPDATE: Everything went fine. The ASC worker was a bit doubtful on whether embassy would accept the picture with a bandage. She asked me whether I wanted to reschedule or try anyway, so I removed the bandage and took the picture with the tiny scar. (I guess I could have also been allowed to try with the bandage on, I don't quite remember.) She did mention "you're supposed to look the same way as when you'll be traveling", which sounded a bit shady to me since some visas last 10 years.
Here's a (very crappy) picture of my bandage as it was that day
Later, the consular officer did not give a crap about it, and didn't even mention it. This was not my first visa, I have a B1/B2 and this is the second J1 I'm applying for, so maybe that made a difference. Also, this was in Argentina which has one of the lowest US visa rejection rates in the world (maybe the lowest).
