Visa Information System contributions

Response to this request is long overdue. By law, under all circumstances, Migration and Home Affairs should have responded by now (details). You can complain by requesting an internal review.

Dear Migration and Home Affairs,

Under the right of access to documents in the EU treaties, as developed in Regulation 1049/2001, I am requesting information about the Visa Information System (VIS).

Being the VIS a "central IT system and of a communication infrastructure that links this central system to national systems", I would like to know:

- which states are currently (june 2016) connected to the central system and which,
- which states have already contributed to the database with their national information.

If needed, I provide a personal address:

Daniele Grasso,
Vía de las dos Castillas 33, Building Ática7 - Floor 1 -Pozuelo de Alarcón, 28224, Madrid, Spain

Yours faithfully,

Daniele Grasso
