The Lord Of The Rings star arrived in Delhi at 1:30am, only to discover that the e-visa he applied for back in November had been rejected!
Without a valid visa, the 38-year-old blood was then deported back to Britain at 4am.
After the intervention of India’s External Affair Minister, Bloom was granted a visa the following day.
Amar Singh, a politician who is hosting Bloom in the country, revealed that the actor had no idea his e-visa was not in order. “He had applied for an e-visa and didn’t get a reply. His office thought that he would get the visa on arrival.”
Singh added that Bloom was feeling unwell when he arrived, but despite a doctor advising he be admitted to hospital for a stomachache, he was sent back to the U.K. on the next flight.
The Pirates Of The Caribbean was finally admitted into India on Sunday, December 20th.
