Changes in the Schengen visa application process November 2, 2015

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.
