Launch of Visa Information System

Launch of the Visa Information System (VIS ) – Improving Schengen Visa Procedures.

“On 2 November 2015 the Visa Information System (VIS) will be introduced in Bangladesh. For Schengen visa applicants this means that you will be asked to give biometric data (10-digit finger scans and digital photograph) when applying for a Schengen visa.
The VIS is a system for the exchange of visa data among Schengen Member States, and which data can be accessed by the Schengen States to secure fast, accurate and secure border controls.
