[thechat] Swiss visa problems

Hey folks,

One of my friends is travelling to Europe. She's going to UK, France, and Switzerland. She's staying with a Swiss friend of hers in Switzerland. 

The problem is that when she applied for her Swiss visa, the Swiss embassy asked for not just her financial documents, but also that of her friend who's hosting her. She is in an embarassing situation now because she feels bad asking her friend to hand over her bank statements etc. She thinks it a serious violation of her friend's privacy.

(Alternatively, she has to show a confirmed hotel booking, for which she has to pay, and she doesn't want to stay in a hotel anyway.)

Any of you know a way out of this? Or got any advice?
