EU schengen country.
I am a us citizen so I don't think I am a huge risk, and the immigration in this country is really slack. But I have overstayed a bit. Several months.
Say what you want but it's not my fault, I came with a purpose to be resident, my host deceived me I guess so when I went for a permit to stay it said I wasn't a resident. I had so many issues here and not much help. I had to start it all over, it's very hard to find a place and settle in with horrible bureaucracy here. So by then my stay ran out, and I had thought it was settled to get a residence permit.
That being said I had a Canadian friend who was traveling and purposely overstayed and didn't seem to care, I don't think he had any trouble leaving and did not pay fines, but he has not come back since he was just a tourist. But I need to come right back. I'm just reseting my entry to get a permit, now I have residency but not legal visa. I'm also in the process to be a citizen here so I have to come back for that. I can't even work and I am restless and bored and running low on funds.
Oh, judge me if you want but will they let me back in and forget whatever fines? I'm really worried about it.
