I am going on a business trip to Amsterdam for 3 days , would like to extend the trip as a tourist to Paris for 6 days. Which countries consulate should I apply. What should I mention in the cover letter of Schengen visa?

  • @David I don’t think the visa has been issued yet, the OP is asking where to apply to and what to put in the cover letter. Sounds like a typical Schengen application question to me.

  • @Traveller Yes, on re-read, I agree with you. I'll delete my comment. Aug 6, 2019 at 17:08
  • @David: That's not a good duplicate target, because its only answer completely ignores the "main purpose" criterion for identifying a main destination, which seems to be governing in this case. Aug 6, 2019 at 18:10
  • You're right. I'm not accurate today. Thanks for the correction. Aug 6, 2019 at 18:37
  • My maximum number of stay is in Paris. But my first port of entry is Netherlands. Should I apply visa in France consulate or Netherlands. Purpose is tourism Aug 7, 2019 at 4:55
