Since September 14 2015 the consular section of the Luxembourg embassy in Moscow has started issuing biometric visas in the framework of the roll-out of the Visa Information System (VIS) in the Russian Federation. The VIS is a system for the exchange of visa data among Schengen Member States with the specific objectives to facilitate visa procedures, to enhance security of the visa application process and to facilitate visa checks at the external borders of the Schengen Area.

In practice, this means that first-time visa applicants will have to appear in person at the consular section of the Embassy when lodging an application for a Schengen visa in order to provide their biometric data (i.e.10-digit finger print scans). Visa applicants do not have to give new finger print scans every time they apply for a new visa at the consular section of the embassy even if they applied to a different Schengen Member State consulate before. Once finger prints scans have been taken during a previous visa application they are stored in the VIS and can be re-used for subsequent visa applications over a 5-year period. Children under 12 year old are exempted from this procedure.
