I've had several Schengen visas pre-COVID. On one occasion I have been fingerprinted during visa application, but I do not remember exactly which visa was this. Now I'm going to apply for a new Schengen visa, and one of the questions is whether my fingerprints have been taken in last five years.
So I have following questions.
Firstly, is there a way to determine when my fingerprints have been taken? Is there any special mark on the visa? I've looked at my past visas, but can see no obvious mark.
Secondly, what dates are taken into account for the five-year interval? Does it start on the day when my fingerprints were taken (am I supposed to remember it?), or on the start date of my visa, etc? What date should fall within the five-year time -- the date when I submit my new application, the date of the start of my trip, the day of the end of my trip, the end date of my visa (if I'm applying for a multiple-entry)?
Finally, what can be consequences if I erroneously declare that I have not submitted my fingerprints in last five years? I'm OK with my fingerprints being taken once more to be on the safe side, but will it count as lying on my visa application?
