All applications for a Schengen visa must be submitted at our external service provider TLScontact. The service fee levied by TLScontact is currently EUR 23.00.
Biometrics / Personal appearance
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.
