Dear travel agencies,
Before submitting your application, it is compulsory to add your agency stamp on the top of the first page of the applicant's Schengen form, otherwise the application will not be accepted.
Since 25.09.2015, all diplomatic representations of the Schengen member states in Turkey are capturing the biometric data (finger scans and facial image) of persons applying for a Schengen visa. The data is being kept in the Visa Information System (VIS) for 5 years. If your finger scans have not been collected yet, personal appearance when applying for a Schengen visa is mandatory. If your finger scans were previously collected (within the last 5 years) and a visa with the mention “VIS” has been granted, then you won’t have to give new finger scans for your next visa application(s) and personal appearance is not mandatory. You will still have to appear in person to give your fingerprints should the previously collected fingerprints prove to be of insufficient quality or should the Consulate General wish to conduct an interview with you. Finger scans are not required from children under the age of 12.
For applicants handing in documents issued in Arabic language, please note that it’s mandatory to translate all Arabic documents to English. The translation should be done by an official translator.
