EU plans biometric visas to ensure security of travelling

Views: 200

The European Commission has adopted a proposal for a regulation introducing biometric identifiers in the Visa Information System (VIS).


This proposal also includes different options allowing member states to jointly organise the reception and processing of visa applications. This proposal will facilitate the visa issuing procedure, prevent visa shopping, facilitate checks at external borders and strength the fight against fraud and, within the territory of the member states, assist in the identification and return of illegal immigrants and the prevention of threats to the internal security of the member states.
