After an applicant is granted a visa, they should use the time to complete any other procedures required for leaving their own country before it expires. But if you are unable to depart for the target country within that period, such as being hospitalized or other unforeseen events due to the force majeure, then you should take the related materials as proof to the embassy and consulate of your target country stationed in your own country and apply for an extension. If the expiration date is not long passed, then your application will be granted, or you will fail to get the visa extended.
In normal conditions, the applicant should arrive in and leave the target country within the period of the validity. Otherwise, your overstaying will be deemed as illegal, and you may be fined, interned or deported. However, if there are special reasons for your visa extension application, you should go to the immigrant organization in your target country and have the visa extented before it expires.
Revoking of Visa
If the visa issuing organization takes the visa back and cancels its validity after issuing it, then it is called visa revoking. Only the issuing organization has the right to do it. For following two reasons, the visa will be revoked:
1. The applicant is considered not suitable to enter or transit the country;
2. The visa is lost together with the passport.
The purpose for revoking a visa is to prevent the perpetrator use of the visa to carry out illegal activities and so on.
If the reason for visa revoking is due to loss by visa possessor, the applicant may reapply a visa. As long as the evidence is sufficient and enough material is prepared, after verification by the issuing organization, a new visa should be issued to you. If it is the issuing organization that revoked the visa, the applicant has the right to appeal, but generally the visa will not be reissued.
