I am planning to go to Amsterdam on May 20, 2018 from New Delhi, India. However, when I tried to apply for a visa appointment with the Netherlands VFS in Delhi, the earliest appointment date was May 9. Since the visa processing time is 2 to 3 weeks, it doesn't make sense for me to schedule an appointment as the departure date is too close to the appointment date.
So can I apply for my visa through the German VFS, as I can get an earlier appointment date there? My port of entry and exit would be Amsterdam, and yes, I will be travelling to Germany and other EU countries as well, but my main duration of stay would be in Amsterdam. Around 8 to 9 days there, 3 in Germany and so on.
Everywhere it's written that you have to apply for your visa at the country where you will be staying the most or the port of entry. But here, I will be applying through the German VFS and staying the most in the Netherlands and the port of entry and exit is Amsterdam.
