I might be wrong, but my understanding is that her application for extension/renewal was refused first and then she left within the permitted 10 day grace period, and she was still put into the undesirable name list at the airport.

Anyway, she won the appeal in the end and was delisted from the undesirable name list.

Hi,

The nowaday practise is that as long as you submit your application for extension/renewal before the expiry date, VFS and DHA will take the application and process it.

I did it myself and I knew a few people did it, too. There was not any problem at all at VFS.
