I'm a Russian citizen holding a Schengen visa valid from 01.08.14 till 31.07.15
For the period from 20.11.14 to 18.05.15 I overstayed for 28 days. The immigration officer at Swiss border hadn't mentioned anything and also hadn't put any specific stamp in my passport.
I'm planning to apply for a national Swiss visa and wondering what the consequences of my overstay can be...
- Is such visa violation considered to be severe or not?
- Will I be obliged to pay the penalty if at all and when do you think is safe to apply for the long-stay visa to Switzerland ?
- Is it correct that I cannot enter Schengen zone again till August at least? (the online calculator indicates 17/08/15 as the earliest date of possible entrance)
