Biometry - Visa Information System
All Schengen visa applicants must appear in person at the Belgian Visa Application Center (TLS) in Bukoto, except for children younger than 12, to have their 10 fingerprints and their photograph registered. These data are stored for 5 years in the VIS. The fingerprint registration procedure only takes a few minutes and identifies you with certainty as the sole licensee of the visa. It protects you against falsification or abuse of your identity (for instance, if your passport is stolen) and optimizes the border crossing. For more extensive information, we refer you to the European Union website.
