I overstayed my visa in Belgium... Now what?
I am an American and I came to Belgium in July of 2014 to meet up with my boyfriend and tour the country for a little bit. I have not been outside of Belgium during my stay. He is a Belgian citizen himself, and we had not seen each other in three months. I had no intention of overstaying my visa, but I did. (I also was not planning on getting engaged and married but I did too!) I am going back to America the 23rd of December 2014 to stay with my family back home and see them for Christmas. I have been looking around for advice and I have not seen exact penalties on any Belgian government website, so I thought I would turn it to the forum here. What are the fines/ penalties I am looking at with having overstayed my visa? I have overstayed for just about 2 months.. How long will I have to stay out of the Schengen Countries? Is there a possibility of me being detained and missing my flight? I am flying through Montreal and then to California, will I face any problems there? Help and advice on this would be much appreciated.
