Visa Overstay by 1 day

There were only old threads about this topic, so I'm asking again. I counted the days wrong when I booked our flights and we are staying 31 days instead of 30. I know it's a 300 000rp fine for overstaying one day, but what I'm more interested is that is it going to be a huge hassle at the airport? So far I have planned applying a 60d visa, but the overstay fine would be about half the price. TIA for your thoughts :)

Apparently if you slap the Immigration Officer you get to stay for longer.

Goodness me, what was that woman thinking?

Cempaka, the Immigration Officer deserves a medal for keeping his cool. I can't believe an apparently "educated" person can overstay for so many months and then get so aggressive when told the consequences. I hope she has a stay in hotel K for her actions.

Just heard today that the immigration officer dealing with this woman has been recommended a promotion by his superior for handling the situation professionally.

And so he should - no-one should have to deal with being slapped in the course of their job. Good on him for keeping his cool, I'm not sure I would have been able to do the same.

Just an update on our 5-day overstay. The immigration officers were really nice when we explained the situation but told us we’d have to pay the fine. We got referred to the office beside immigration and were charged 300,000 Rp per person per day. We had to pay cash. The process took about 10 minutes. So an expensive lesson but my biggest worry was any kind of charge or inability to return and that was unfounded. Yay! Next time I’ll make sure we get a visa!
