I'm planning to travel to Switzerland from 20th to 25th October 2019, and then again to Bonn in the time period of 13th to 17th January 2020, both times to attend academic conferences/schools.
I would be applying for the visa in early October 2019 at the Swiss consulate in New York city. I'm an Indian citizen residing in the United States on an F1 student visa.
When applying for the visa at the Swiss consulate, would it be pertinent to let them know of my intent to travel to Germany later, and request them to ensure that the visa which is usually valid for 90 days remains valid till at least 18th January 2020?
Thanks a lot!
