I have a valid German study visa but I won't travel to Germany with it. I have cancelled my plan. Does only having a visa in my passport create my travel history? Without traveling to Germany, will I have a travel history record just by having a valid visa in my passport?
the reason I am asking this is:
I have got admission in Germany as well as in US. My US admission letter came late. So I started my German visa process and got the visa. Now I have decided to go to US for studies instead of Germany. I have cancelled my German visa and they have put a stamp "cancelled without prejudice" stamp on my German visa. Will that create any negative impact of my US study visa process? Now since I did not travel to Germany, and I don't want the US embassy to know about my cancelled German visa, I thought I should renew my passport and tell the US embassy that I lost my old one. What do you suggest?
