11 October 2011 – As from 08:00 (Brussels time) today, the Visa Information System (VIS) will start operations. Schengen states' visa-issuing consular posts in North Africa are the first to be connected to this database exchanging data on short-stay visas among Schengen countries. Visa applicants will enjoy faster procedures thanks to the use of biometrics (fingerprints and a digital facial image) which will facilitate the identification of visa holders and help to avoid identity theft.


The procedure for collecting fingerprints is simple, rapid and discreet. The applicant will only have to place his/her fingers on the surface of a digital scanner. When lodging subsequent applications within five years, the fingerprints will not be taken again but copied from the previous application in the VIS. After five years, data will be erased.

Progressively rolled out in the different regions of the world, the VIS will start operating in North Africa, to be followed by the Near East, and the Gulf region. All Schengen states' consular posts worldwide should be connected to the VIS within two years.
