I just want know about the penalties for overstay in Sweden.
I start traveling to Sweden from 2014 using six months residence permit. I always returned to India before my visa expired. After 3 months, I would apply for another six months permit. This last time I overstayed in Sweden for 9 months.
I was facing some personal problems. That’s only the reason for this long overstay. I decided to go to the Swedish immigration and surrender myself. They said you don’t have the right to stay.
They gave me a form and told me to hand it over to the airport immigration police. Within two days I booked my ticket to India and I handed over that paper to the immigration policeman and he said nothing.
I know I made a big mistake. Have I been banned? And if so, for how long?
