I am and was here on a visit to Israel to visit my fiance and friends here originally for an intended 2 weeks. During the 2 weeks I decided to stay for the duration of my allowed legal stay in Israel (90 days).
During the visit, my debit card which was my sole source of finances here, was mistakenly set to be renewed without my permission due to a computing error. It resulted in my debit card being locked and my bank access limited or denied.
All my funds then had to be rerouted into my fiances bank to be accessed. At some point recently, a few days before my 90 days was set to expire, we paid for 2 tickets to Germany with Ryanair for a week in order to potentially renew for a new set of 90 days.
It failed when we successfully made it through the security check at the airport and they revoked my exit pass to Israel, but the woman at the counter for check-ins refused to allow us on the plane citing "we recommend passengers be here 3 hours early".
We were there at least 1 and a half to 2 hours early for our flight, and she had originally offered us a late check-in fee which she later revoked and refused us entry to the plane which was a nonrefundable flight.
This refusal to allow us our flight resulted in an inability to leave the country in time before my expiration and without either of us enough money for a new ticket.
Now due to the overstay, we are scared to approach the airport again for fear of being arrested. And when we manage to gather resources to leave its estimated it would not be until at least 3-6 months from now.
We have heard varying reports for the consequences of overstay ranging from a 20 minute yelling and interrogation to a fine for each month thats overstayed to being detained and we are unsure if we would even be allowed back on the plane to go home when we approach resulted in more wasted money and distress.
I have not committed any crimes while in Israel or disrupted any level of business while here or been employed at any level. I am perfectly fine staying in the house continually until my fiance procures enough to remedy the situation.
I understand these situations are viewed on a case by case basis and its my first time traveling outside of the United States. I would really like to know what I'm up against and what standard procedure is for individuals who are stuck in this situation with no money to get home yet.
