how to remove personal info from SIS VIS

Post by mcovet » Tue Oct 09, 2012 4:21 pm


someone applied for a Schengen visa and then got British Passport. They don't want their fingerprints and picture on those VIS and SIS databases. Is there any way they can have those removed from the database and how long will the process take?

The Schengen visa was obtained in August 2012 at the French Embassy via the outsourced centre in Kensington.

First step would be to contact the embassy itself (which will not help).
Second would to be to read through the schengen documents and documents on SIS. ... dex_en.htm

I suspect you will only be able to remove incorrect information.
