I am a student and I have planned academic trips on the following dates in the following countries:
- 11 August 2018 to 20 August 2018 in Dresden, Germany. (9 days)
- 1 September 2018 to 28 November 2018 in Copenhagen, Denmark. (88 days)
I want to know if I should apply for two different Schengen visas or I for one long-term visa, which will cover both trips.
In the latter case, when I am applying for a long-term visa, Hlhow do I justify support and explain I will be coming back. And which embassy to apply to?
EDIT1: Looking at the visa constraints, I have shifted my second visit to the end of the first visit so that I enter Europe once.
Now I am wondering if I should reduce my second visit to 80 days, so that I will have to take only one Schengen visa for 90 days and I will stay in Germany for 10 days and in Copenhagen for the next 80 days.
Is there any other way to get a 100-day visa for Europe?
