I am an Indian citizen with US green card (living in the US). I had applied and received a Schengen visa last year from the Italian Embassy last year for a 2 week visit. The visa details were:
From: 20-06-15 To: 10-07-15. MULTI Duration of stay: 21 days The visa had the "VIS" entry in it (proves that the visa included biometric information which is shared across the SCHENGEN states)
I was planning to travel to France in July/August and saw the following information on the France web site:
Please note that you don't have to apply in person if you already hold a Schengen visa with the mention "VIS" on it issued less than 5 years ago. In that case, just mail us your complete application with a credit card authorization form for the fees and a self addressed prepaid envelope.
Does this hold true in my case and can I just mail the passport in (without going in for an appointment)?
