On November 2, 2015 the Visa Information System (VIS) was introduced in Bangladesh. For Schengen visa applicants this means that you will be asked to leave 10 fingerprints and a digital photograph when applying for a Schengen visa.
The information can be accessed by the Schengen States and are primarily used in order to secure fast, accurate and secure border controls.
