A new Schengen information system has been put into operation. What does this mean for Russians
On March 7, the updated Schengen Information System (SIS) was officially launched . according to the European Commission (EC), has officially started working. The launch of the largest information exchange system for security and border control in Europe took place as planned – on March 7, it began to operate in 30 countries.
Now, in addition to photos and fingerprints, the system contains biometric data, palm prints , DNA records of missing persons and other similar information for locating and identifying people. This will allow the authorities to detect and prevent attempts crimes, terrorism, as well as illegal migration.
Given the sanctions against our country, the introduction of the new system threatens Russian tourists only with an increase in the time it takes to go through all checks and border procedures. And possible errors related to passport control can lead to denials of entry into the EU, followed by a complex bureaucratic process of correcting them.
