I am just curious, and maybe someone has a reply. How are embassies/consulates which process visas able to verify hotel and flight bookings?
I know one person who edited old Ryanair and EasyJet e-tickets to be used as flight bookings when he was going to apply for a visa at the Italian consulate in Edinburgh. Other people might be doing the same for their flight and hotel bookings. Is it common practice? Do you know of people who do the same?
Is there any way visa officers can actually verify that flight e-tickets for low-cost airlines are even real?? How about for hotels?
PS: I would never dream of doing this and getting blacklisted ever! Just curious though how people can get away with doing this.
