I miscalculated the number of days I would be in the Schengen region for a conference, and was fined 110 euros for overstaying by a day. Will I be refused a Schengen visa in future on account of this? I am an Indian national and was traveling on a business visa.

    Any particular reason for overstay?

  • It is pretty much impossible to tell if you will get a visa in the future or not. Your overstay would only be one factor in the equation. However, regardless of whether it is formally considered during the decision or not, an overstay be a single day should not be a show-stopper on its own.

The top story on https://www.lonelyplanet.com/thorntree/permalink/post/17975501 is about someone overstaying by 4 days, paying a fine and then two days later entering a few days later without problems.

If your story is correct and you were let go with just paying a fine and you were not deported then you should be fine. If, on the hand, you got the giant red deportation stamp in your passport you are hosed: not only in the EU but every country you attempt to enter will consider twice before letting you in.

    Note that the thread in question is four years old, before the 90/180 calculation change (see travel.stackexchange.com/a/21461/19400). Other procedures could have changed in the meanwhile.
