Thread Name: BS: Overstayed my visa in a foreign country.
Subject: RE: BS: Overstayed my visa in a foreign country.
When this happened to an American friend (in the UK) a few years ago, he solved the problem by going over to Ireland- no passport controls between UK and Ireland- and applying for a renewed visa from there. It took an extended holiday, about 3 months, to get ritually purified, but he enjoyed himself and even managed to get a bit of cash-in-hand website design work so he didn't live too badly.
