Have a single invitation but require a double.

+1 vote
Hi guys,

Great website and good job!  My wife has applied for a single entry invitation for me but I require a double due to some travel changes.  Can I apply for a double entry visa or will my consulate refuse that application.

If so could I get a double entry touristic invitation (from your website) even though I will not use my original invitation and will this have consequences when I actually enter?

Thanks for your help.

Thank you for your kind words!

To get a double entry visa you need to have a double entry visa support, so you need to get a new one.

You can get the second invitation if you need it. In fact, try to ask our partner company to make those changes without applying again. Maybe they can do that.

Good luck!
