This question already has an answer here:
He lives in Utrecht, Netherlands and the Netherlands would be my port of entry and exit, as well as the country I spend the most time in. My friend would have to go through so much hassle for giving the sponsorship letter and previous salary slips.
Besides, he just had an accident a few weeks ago and hasn't been working and I don't want to trouble him by making him do all these formalities. Is it okay if I just book the hotels for the sake of applying for the tourist visa and then cancel the bookings? Do they follow up on such things? I need advice quickly.
