I am writing this query from Pakistan. I will be applying for a short term visitor visa for Germany next week. I intend to visit both my parents who reside there. My father has German citizenship but is unable to sponsor me on account of him being retired and living on pension from the state. I have received an invitation letter from a sponsor, who happens to be a family friend.
I will be covering my own expenses during the stay and have corresponding documents to show that.
Can I stay with my parents during the visit, even if someone else has extended an invitation letter to me? Should I mention it in the covering letter for the sponsor letter?
