New Information regarding Schengen Visa Requirements
As of May 15, 2014 the EU Visa Information System (VIS), a system for the exchange of data on short-stay visas between Schengen States will be enforced. It is a simple and discreet procedure carried out directly at the Embassy and only takes a few minutes.
Visa applicants who are nationals and non-nationals resident in Trinidad and Tobago will have to provide a digital photograph and 10 fingerprint scans, which will be recorded in the VIS central database. This biometric data will only have to be provided every 5 years.
