About the Visa Exit Date Calculator
Any time you enter a country of which you are not a citizen or permanent resident, you are either issued a visa that defines and limits the length of your stay (as well as other terms) – whether you applied for it in advance or got it at the airport (a “visa on arrival”) – or are provided with a visa exemption, which none the less has the same types of (but often more strict) restrictions.
Every visa (and visa exemption) has an expiry date, and thus every entry into a new country requires the calculation of when you have to leave, whether you plan to stay the whole time or not.
Some countries like Japan will print/stamp the date by which you have to leave on your passport, while others like South Korea have a website which will tell you your date.
Most countries however, only tell you the number of days, and leave you to calculate it yourself; often times they won’t tell you when you have to leave, even if you call immigration!
Where many people go wrong in their calculation of their visa period, is that they forget (or are never taught) that there are actually 3 pieces of information you need to know to calculate when your visa expires. If your calculation is off by even a single day, it could lead to a very serious situation called a visa overstay, which can result in serious consequences (like fines, imprisonment, deportation, and being blacklisted/banned from entering the country for years).
Virtually no standard date calculators (i.e. those not specifically used for calculating visa length) take into account all three factors (beyond just entry date and number of days), and thus people – even when doing their own calculation by hand – risk overstaying their visas as a result of incorrect calculations.
The Live Anywhere Visa Exit Date Calculator is the solution to this problem: by providing a calculator dedicated to the type of date calculations specific to visas, you can be confident that you’re in the clear when calculating how long you can stay in a country.
First time using the Visa Exit Date Calculator?
If this is your first time here, there are a few important notes about what data you enter, where to find it, and how it’s calculated – these are the basics of how visas work as they relate to calculating your maximum allowed length of stay.
Visas (the travel document, not the credit card) are such a ubiquitous part of travel: when you visit a country, you either need one, or must be granted an exemption, and each comes with (among other restrictions) a maximum time you’re allowed in the country. Many times, this time limit is provided not as a specific date, but a number of days, leaving you to calculate when you need to leave the country.
That calculation requires 3 key pieces of information – not just the date you entered and your visa length – which is something that ordinary date calculators omit.
This Visa Exit Date Calculator is designed specifically for that type of calculation, so you can be sure the results are transparent and consistent, without having to wonder how the date is calculated every time.
1. Date of Entry
If you arrive(d) late at night (e.g. 11PM), it is possible that by the time you get to immigration, it will be the next day (after 11:59:59 PM), or that the country has a policy to count late-night arrivals as the next day anyway.
Make sure you check your passport for the entry date that was stamped. If the entry stamp doesn’t have a date, use the date you arrived based on your tickets (at most it will be one day less, and you will play it safe).
2. Visa Duration
This is sometimes visible on the stamp in your passport, and this also includes visa-on-arrival and visa-exempt status.
If you have a pre-arranged visa, remember that the entry period is usually different from the validity period: the validity period is when you have to enter by, and the entry period is how long you can stay per entry, the latter of which is the number to enter here.
If your visa was issued in “months” instead of “days”, count a month as 30 days, to be safe.
3. Counting the First Day
This is a very important, often-overlooked variable in normal date calculations (even if done by hand) that gets a lot of people in trouble by overstaying their visa.
Only select “No” if an immigration official from the country you have the visa for has told you that they start counting the day after. If you select “I don’t know” to be safe, it will count the first day (same as “Yes”) and therefore subtract 1 day just in case.
