A new VIS system for issuing visas using biometric data for third-country nationals planning to visit Greece is ready for the coming tourist season, the foreign ministry said in an announcement on Monday. The announcement was issued after a meeting between Alternate Foreign Minister for European Affairs Nikos Xydakis and Alternate Tourism Minister Elena Kountoura with tourism sector associations.

Xydakis briefed Kountoura on the preparations made to use the new and more demanding system, which they noted an expected increase of arrivals from Russia this year.
