If your visa has expired you will be stopped at the airport and will not be allowed to travel. Then you will have to renew your visa and pay a penalty for overstaying with an expired visa. The process takes you about 1 week to fix.

Would advise that you fix your visa before heading out to the airport.

Usually you pay penalty on the spot at the airport a couple of dollars a day at the very worst at best you be let off without paying any penalty .that was my own experience.No big deal.
