Well this is awkward!

Orlando Bloom was brought to India by some of their government officials to promote tourism to the country — only when he arrived late Saturday night, the actor was immediately deported!

Apparently Bloom, 38, tried to enter the country in Delhi without a valid visa, and Indian customs officials promptly put him on a flight right back to Britain!

The Pirates of the Caribbean star was allowed access to the country shortly after, though, when India's External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj granted him a legal visa on Sunday.

The actor flew back Sunday evening — and got in!

Politician Amar Singh, who initially brought Bloom to the country for the tourism project, explained to The Economic Times what happened with the deportation:

"He had applied for an e-visa and didn't get a reply. His office thought that he would get the visa on arrival."

Hey, you know what they say — second time's the charm!

At least one good thing will come of this: in addition to promoting tourism to India, Bloom is now a walking, talking example of how tourists should handle the visa process before they visit!

Despite the deportation denial and multi-flight hiccup, here's to a great trip to India, Orlando!
