Launch of the new Visa Information System (VIS)

The Visa Information System (VIS) started operating on 11 October 2011. It connects consulates in non-EU countries and all external border crossing points of Schengen States with a central database. VIS processes data related to applications for short-stay visas in the Schengen Area. Visa applicants will enjoy faster procedures thanks to the use of biometrics, which will also facilitate the identification of visa holders. In two years' time, VIS will be used for all Schengen state visas.
