I am a UK citizen and my husband has applied for Schengen multiple entry visa through the Swiss Embassy. We are flying to and visiting Geneva but I accidentally booked a hotel which is across the French border. Will this be a problem for my husband, to stay in France instead of in Switzerland?
You should apply for the Schengen Visa Visa from the country where you have the main purpose to travel.
- You are going to professional a conference in Madrid, Spain for 2 days
- You would like also to spend 4 nights in Lisbon, Portugal on the way back
In this case, the country of the main purpose is Spain, while you will spend less nights. Of course, it is much easier when you will spend more time in the country you applied Visa for.
In your case, the main purpose of travel is to visit Geneva. It does not matter, that you will sleep in France. In case you are asked, just be ready to explain to border officer, that you have booked the hotel in France to save money, while you are going to spend all the time in Geneva. I am sure that you will get entrance stamps without such questions.
