This question already has an answer here:
I already have a Schengen visa. Initially my plan was to spend the whole period in the country already applied for -Spain-, and my flight itinerary was inbound and outbound from Spain accordingly.
Due to some changes in plan, my point of entry seems to have to change to Germany instead (where I will spend about 5 nights), then I will make my way down to Spain (staying for around 30 days) until I leave back home.
Would that be acceptable, or is it in anyway penalized?
Please note, the question isn't about being penalized for entering from a country other than which issued the Visa, but rather to not-follow/change the itinerary plans already submitted under which the Schengen Visa was initially granted.
I have already emailed the embassy about the change in plans and awaiting the reply (24-48 hours), but it would great to get an insight from fellow travelers.
