I live in the US (non-US citizen) and am planning to visit Europe for tourism.
I am applying for a Schengen visa in the French Consulate in Washington DC.
A friend of mine who lives in Singapore also is planning to join me for the trip. He also needs a visa and will be applying (a day before me) from the French Consulate in Singapore. He will of course be flying in to Europe from Singapore and me from the US. We will be meeting directly in France and touring together.
Should I mention him in the cover letter that I am drafting for my visa application ?
Currently I have all our itinerary listed down in the letter, but the hotel reservations I am including are for two people (room with double beds), so I am thinking if the visa folks might notice that...
