A man lived in an airport for almost two decades.
Mehran Karimi Nasseri was left stranded in an airport after losing his refugee documents. He was seeking asylum in Belgium—after being exiled from Iran—and decided that he wanted to visit the U.K. and settle there.
However, to get to the U.K., he took a flight to France and ended up losing his briefcase that contained his refugee and travel documents.
After attempting to get into the United Kingdom, he was turned away and sent back to France by passport control—since he didn’t have any verification.
When he was returned back to France, the French police arrested him for not having his papers—but then released him since his stay in the airport itself.
Because of bureaucracy, Mehran had stayed for 18 years in the Charles de Gaulle airport in Paris. His story also sparked the inspiration for the 2004 film, The Terminal.
