Hi blican468. It also happened to me a few days ago and I was told by more experienced hubbers that sometimes Google Adsense takes up to 6-12 months to approve hubbers from some countries (but in the U.S I hear they approve fast if you have 10 hubs and above). I think it depends on the content. I had 10 featured hubs when I applied, but they still refused. I have decided to add more content first as advised by hubbers who have been through similar experiences.
