Hello all... The online application is asking for a flight/hotel itinerary, yet I've heard its a bad idea to book flights and accommodation before your visa is approved. I've found sites that offer temporary booking for this very situation, but as visa processing can take weeks or even more, there is a risk that the booking will expire while the visa is being processed. If this happens, how big of an impact will this have on the application? Also, I have read accounts of people on this forum who applied without an itinerary at all. How advisable is this? Additionally, there is a required field in the application form: "Name, address and relationship of any person or institution I will visit" How do I fill this when I am not visiting any person or institution? I'm just coming to explore as a tourist. Should I write the name of the hotel in the temporary itinerary? On the subject of the form, my apartment name is too long to fill in the "Apt/Unit" field, and the same is true for the "Street no." I've just written my complete address in the "Street name" field, including flat number and apartment complex name. Is this okay?
