    According to Schengen regulation manual amended passports are not accepted. Passports with hand written corrections in biometrical data cannot be accepted when applying for a Schengen visa. Only passports with correct biometrical data can be used to apply.

    A handwritten correction in the date of birth and/or a misspelt name, referred to with a note on page 4 of the passport, is an example of such a correction that cannot be accepted. In such a case, the applicant is requested to make a new passport with the correct biometrical data before applying.

    Additional names or aliases (usually referred to with a note on page 4 of the passports) can be accepted, however the data that will printed in the visa will be copied only from the biometrical data page without taking the page 4 addition into consideration.
