|As per the latest update, please note that with effect from 02nd November 2015 , Biometric (fingerprints & digital photo) has become a mandatory requirement for All Schengen Country Visas. Which means that all travelers applying for a Schengen visa will now have to come personally to the respective Embassy/VFS centre for biometric and application submission.
This biometric data will be valid for 5 years and the travelers, who have already given their biometric once, will not need to come personally for biometric/submission for next 5 years. Following travellers are exempted from biometric
• Children under 12 years of age
• Persons for whom the collection of fingerprints is physically impossible
• Sovereigns and other senior members of a royal family, Heads of State and members of the national Governments (with their official delegations and spouses) if they travel for official purposes.
In this regards, there are very important points that you would need to understand and inform to all your clients as well:-
All visa norms and procedure would remain the same as they are now.
Role of Unicorn Tourism Shall continue providing the visa documentation support, DD making, meet & assist, guidance to the clients appearing for biometric. Applicant just needs to appear personally for biometric and rest all will be taken care of by Unicorn Tourism only.
Unicorn Tourism shall also be making over the counter collection on applicant's behalf.
Unicorn Tourism shall be taking the appointment for all Schengen countries on behalf of the applicants.
In case of any shortcoming in visa form or documents, the applicants would be asked to take a fresh appointment and visit again. Hence, we recommend taking Unicorn Tourism expert service to avoid any such hassle or re-visit for visa submission.
Once the biometric is done, it will remain valid for next 5 years and the applicants will not need to come again for their next travel to Schengen countries. Hence, for all such travellers ,,,,,,,,Unicorn Tourism will be submitting and collecting their visas like before.
We strongly recommend you to take ,,,,,,,,,,,,,,Unicorn Tourism services for documentation, meet & assist fees arrangements, guidance and collection for all your Schengen travellers for smooth processing of their visas.
While for travelers who have already undertaken biometrics... Unicorn Tourism shall be submitting & collecting their visas without biometrics for next 5 years.

In case the applicant goes directly without screening of their documents by Unicorn Tourism team and later at the time of submission if there is any mismatch/shortcoming/gap in the documentation, then there will be no submission and the entire process needs to be started afresh right from appointment taking. Hence, we strongly recommend you to take Unicorn Tourism expert services for appointment, documentation, fee management, meet and assist and collection for a hassle free visa processing for Schengen countries.
