Okay, before anyone judges me, please let me explain why I've overstayed my visa. If you don't care then you can skip this. I'm originally from the US, but I left as soon as I turned 18 because I am autistic, trans, and queer, and I was being emotionally abused by my family and ostracized by the small town I lived in. So I moved to Greece and I've been here for 7 months and I've never been happier.
Okay, you can tune back in now. I want to apply for residency in the Schengen area but I have no idea how, and I am pretty sure I'll be deported if I try.
So my questions are:
- Can I now apply for residency without being deported?
- Would I be deported if I took the ferry from Greece to Italy?
- How do I apply for a visa?
