Orlando Bloom deported from India after visa mix-up

ORLANDO Bloom was reportedly deported from India on Saturday (19.12.15) after his visa was rejected.

The 38-year-old actor arrived at Delhi's Indira Gandhi International Airport on a British Airways flight from the UK to promote tourism as a guest of the state.

But he was allegedly sent straight back to London on a turnaround flight after his e-visa, which he applied for weeks in advance, was refused by government officials.

A source told the Mail Today in India: "Orlando was invited [to India] for a government programme.

"The arrogant behaviour of Immigration officials has dented India's image globally as they deliberately deported him even when they had other options to allow him to stay here."

The 'Pirates of the Caribbean' star was reportedly "upset" about how immigration officers had handled the situation but was later allowed to return to the New Delhi after External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj intervened to ensure the Hollywood hunk was issued an urgent visa.

According to the Daily Mirror newspaper, the insider said: "A visa was issued after Sushma Swaraj's reported intervention after which Bloom finally landed in Delhi on Sunday."

Despite the mix up, Orlando hasn't let the inconvenient error ruin his trip as he was seen on Sunday (20.12.15) posing for photographs in front of the world-famous Taj Mahal.
