You don't need an entry stamp to enter Nepal since you're an indian citizen. The people checking your passport when exiting Nepal will know this and also know why the first stamp was cancelled (since it was invalid). You could ask for a cancelled exit stamp though!

Finland is notorious for systematic inspections of passports of visa applicants with the purpose of finding such stamps. The passport above is one received back by a visa applicant with the note that says: Respected sir/madam, hereby we communicate it to you that your passport is not a valid travel document because of the following defect found in it: ...

Don't get these. My friend was almost denied boarding an international flight because of a fake Machu Picchu passport stamp. Taiwan has rejected several people from entry for fake stamps as well.

Got one in Ushuaia at the tourist booth showing a map of the island because it was personally meaningful, know it is at best semi-official. (The Port Lockroy, Antarctica, stamp next to it is slightly more genuine.) Never had a bit of trouble with it but then I have a fair number of stamps and it is in dark ink so it doesn't stamp out. Got tourist office ...

Managing to leave Japan without an exit stamp or having your passport inspected at all is extremely irregular, and I'm quite astonished that you managed to do so, especially by accident. You are almost certainly registered as still being in Japan and, if you do nothing to fix this, likely to run into a lot of trouble the next time you visit. Your best bet ...

I'm not an expert on the ESTA and VWP, but from what I understand, if you leave the USA for Canada or Mexico and return via Canada or Mexico you don't need to be stamped again as it is considered part of the same trip.

Lacking the relevant information makes answering this difficult. If you were in Transit: yes, you will have a problem, since in the future they will see that you entered without a proper exit stamp and will assume that you overstayed. Since the burden of proof lays with you, retain the ticket proving that you entered and left that airport. If you have an ...

What happened to you with your current passport happened to you and will stay with you also with a new passport. But as you should renew your passport soon, it does not hurt to do it a bit early. You will then no longer have the big X in your passport. But when asked about whether you have been denied, you have to answer yes. If you answer no and they ...
