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.


1 Answer 1

  • You may change details of your itinerary after the visa is granted.
  • You may not misrepresent the details of your itinerary to get a visa.

Telling one from the other depends on knowing when you made the decision, so the second point really becomes:

  • You should not cause the perception that you misrepresented your itinerary.

There are stories of people who got their visa annulled for such a fake booking.

  • So does that mean that the embassy followed up on some cases and found out that their bookings were fake and misleading? Jul 9, 2018 at 3:40
  • @AyushmanSrivastav, apparently some embassies followed some cases.
