I am planning to apply for a Schengen visa and I am hoping that I will be granted a longer duration of stay. This will be my second time to apply. In my first Schengen visa, I was only given 10 days duration of stay which was valid only from and until the dates indicated on the airline ticket I submitted. Back then I also bought insurance with coverage from those dates only.
Now I am kinda hoping I would be given a visa with longer validity and/or duration of stay. I already bought my plane tickets for a two-week trip. If I buy an insurance which covers me only for the days of my travel, is there a chance that the embassy will still issue a visa which is valid for longer than 2 weeks? I am also thinking that maybe if I buy an insurance with a longer period of coverage say 90 or 180 days then maybe the embassy would give me a visa with longer validity. What do you guys think?
