Data is kept in the Visa Information System (VIS) for five years. This retention period starts from the expiry date of the issued visa, the date a negative decision is taken or the date a decision to modify an issued visa is taken. https://ec.europa.eu/home-affairs/what-we-do/policies/borders-and-visas/visa-information-system_en
