Russia has joined the Schengen system of biometric visasduguech
On the 14th September, the global system of Schengen Visas (VIS) was put in place in the Russian Federation, so that Russian citizens wishing to travel to a country in this region must provide biometric data such as fingerprints and digital photographs in order to obtain a visa.
To apply for this, the applicants must pay a fee of 35€ and book an appointment at the consular office in the country you wish to apply a visa for, in order to achieve the biometric details. This system facilitates information exchange between consulates and the procedure is safer.
