Visa applicants are required to apply in person and provide their biometric identifiers - photographs and fingerprints.
On 14th March 2013, in accordance with European Union regulations, the Embassy of the Czech Republic in Accra started to use the Visa Information System (VIS).
The VIS is a system facilitating the exchange of visa data between the European Union Member States. It enables the competent national authorities to electronically enter and consult visa data, including biometric data.
Visa applicants are henceforth required to apply in person and provide their biometric identifiers - photographs and fingerprints.
Additional details on the VIS are available on the European Commission website: http://ec.europa.eu/vis.
