This was more of a misunderstanding. This happened in India a few yesrs ago. I was told my visa extension was approved by the ministry. However, upon exit registration (required 24hrs before departure) the officer made a note on my passport that this "extension" was "an order to regularize my overstay." The note further said I was "directed to leave india" by the next day. This "overstay" was 10 days over my 30 day stay per visit on the multiple entry visa. The Indian bureaucracy is very different from other countries.
I have since traveled to India on the same and new visas 50+ times without any problems. The UK visa application form requires me to declare if I have ever been required to leave a country. How should I explain this situation and what impact will it have on my application? I have travelled to the UK more than 30 times without any issues. I'm also a frequent traveler to other countries and don't tend to have issues.
I also plan to travel to Australia. They ask if I have ever overstayed a visa. Does this mean I'll not be able to travel there?
