I am a Non-Euro citizen, traveling to France and Switzerland for Tourism for 15 days. My entry and exit flights are from France. My stay in France is for 6 days And stay in Switzerland is for 9 days.
I am staying in Switzerland at Airbnb. In France I am staying at the house of a non-european friend who lives there for his employment in the embassy of my parent country.
I have applied for Tourist Visa from Switzerland, in my application and covering letter I have mentioned the purpose of trip as Tourism and my Itinerary reflects the same, I have also attached a letter of Invitation from my friend in France stating that during my transit to Switzerland I will be staying in France at his place. But during submission of my application the VFS global employee tells me that, as I have attached a letter of Invitation from my friend in France, the embassy of Switzerland may simply reject my application stating that I should have applied for Visa from France instead of Switzerland as my intent of visit will change from tourism to Visitor if I stay at my friend's place. Is it true?
