Hello, I am in need of assistance with a case of absconding and blacklisting that was filed against me without due warning. The Travel Agency informed me that I could extend my visit visa and provided me with a payment link to do so. I paid for the extension. They then told me I have to pay for 1 day of overstay as well. When I attempted to pay the overstay fine through the government portal there was a system error. I informed them and sent them a screenshot. After a few minutes, they informed me that they had filed absconding against me and blacklisted me. I was fully cooperative and reacted immediately when I found out about the issue doing everything in my ability to resolve it as fast as possible. I feel the blacklisting and absconding were filed unfairly without due notice. They also lied to me by accepting my payment for a VISA extension and only afterwards informed me they had absconded me.
