I am in the UK on a Tier 2 visa. I applied for a Schengen visa last year, which is expiring in March 2019, via the German embassy. I am now considering to apply for a new one via the French embassy.

Do I have to go for biometrics to be taken in order to get another Schengen visa or can I do it by mail?

New biometrics are not necessary if the previous ones are less than five years old, unless the consulate has doubts as to your identity/data.

  • so can i apply for france visa via mail and do not go to france consulate ? i tried finding it on tslconnect but no information :( Mar 1, 2019 at 16:09
  • @KrunalBarot, look at field 27 of the application form. If you check "yes," they can ask you to come in person, but they rarely do that.
