not always. this only applies if you intend to travel different parts of europe and will not stay in longer in any particular country than most.Originally Posted by Nerfy
but if you will stay in one country more days than the others, then you have to apply the visa from that particular embassy.
but for example, you are applying in the french embassy and your itinerary (you need to present one to the embassy) shows that you will be entering france first but will be staying there only for 2 days. then next on your list is italy but you will be staying there for around 2 weeks. then the embassy will suggest that you apply at the italian embassy.
hope this helps!
