Accoridng to the diplomatic community, a border guard does not have the authority to issue a 7-day stamp and not a 3-month entry stamp. It’s 3-months or nothing. My intuition was probably correct. Anyway, no need to worry. I need not flee the country before late january. Well, at least not for Visa reasons. This is good; if they were going to deport me, I was going to make sure it was for something cool. Like parachuting naked onto the roof of the hospital or shooting someone in the foot with a crossbow. But all of that is unnecessary now.
Well, maybe not unnecessary, but probably uncalled for.
