I am planning a trip to Italy from 2nd May to 11th May from Dublin. I have booked my flights and hotels and I have all Schengen visa related documents ready with me.
However, when I tried to check the appointment I found there is no slot available before 7th May.
Could anyone please suggest me what is the best thing to do now?
Is there a way to get visa from Italy embassy in urgent basis? or
Can I get Schengen visa for a different country and first travel to that country, spent a day or two there and then enter Italy?
For visa purpose I can show I am staying more days in that country than Italy. Can there be a problem with border control in Italy?
Please help me, I don't want to drop my entire plan :(
