However, it is possible to retrieve your biometric data if a previous biometric Schengen visa has been issued to you less than 59 months ago.
Children under 12 years of age: children under 12 years of age are not required to provide the biometric data, short stay Schengen visa application may be submitted by the child’s parent/legal guardian. The ISO/IEC format photograph (pdf) of the child will be scanned.
