I wonder if anybody can explain me the correct procedure if I want to visit EU national friends in Italy and Spain. I hold an Indian passport.
I am visiting a Spanish friend in Spain for 3 days first and then visiting my Italian friend in Italy for 6 days.
Since my maximum stay is in Italy, I will apply for my Schengen visa at the Italian consulate.
To get this visa for visiting friends, I need to submit invitation letters, accommodation proof, plus the passport copies of my friend. I have these from my Italian friend already.
But what about my Spanish friend? Do I need an invitation letter from my Spanish friend, too? Do I need to submit some proof of my Spain journey at the Italian consulate? Is it needed?
I am confused about this part. My accommodation will not be in hotels but in both my friends' houses.
