Re: 90/180 day rule

As far as I understand it, expired is expired.

Had you had a visa, let's say, for the entire month starting on 1st May and expiring on 31st May, but you never used it to enter the country at all, then you don't have 31 days "visa credit" for any other month. The visa grants you permission to enter the country between the starting date and up until the ending date. Thereafter it is over.

So yes, if your visa expired on 24th June, then you no longer have a visa, and you also no longer have those 18 days that you didn't use on that visa. You must leave the country.

Now, if you set about applying for a new visa, then those 18 days you didn't use are over/past/finito/gone and have no bearing at all on any new visa.

However, you may well have to be out of the country for a certain time before a new visa application will be considered [favourably].
