The tasks of the embassy

Introduction of the VIS – New Procedure of Visa Application

On 11 October 2011 the Schengen member states introduced the Visa Information System (VIS). The VIS will also be used to store the biometric data (10 fingerprints and the facial image) of the visa applicants. The diplomatic representations of the Schengen member states will be gradually connected to the system region by region.

Along with the connection to the VIS on May 10th, 2012 all diplomatic representations of the Schengen member states in Jordan have to capture the biometric data of persons applying for a Schengen visa.

An information leaflet of the European Union relating to the introduction of the VIS and the capture of biometric data can be found on: Schengen Visa Information System (VIS)
