By judgment N° 5420/2017, the Regional Administrative Court of Lazio (TAR del Lazio) accepted the appeal submitted by a Pakistani entrepreneur against the refusal of visa for business reasons, issued by the Embassy of Italy in Islamabad.

The applicant requested the visa in order to conduct some commercial negotiations with Italian companies in Italy, but the consular office rejected the visa application, mainly because of previous denials issued against the applicant by other Schengen countries. So the Pakistani businessman decided to appeal the visa refusal before the Regional Administrative Court of Lazio, based in Rome, which is the competent court for business visa refusal appeals.

The Pakistani citizen was represented and defended by the Italian lawyer, Mr. Santaniello Luca, who denounced that the applicant didn't receive any notice of rejection and the decision of the embassy was not properly motivated.

The TAR of Lazio upheld the appeal, stating that the refusal was not motivated and the Italian embassy cannot act arbitrarily. The administrative court also added that the "migratory risk" mentioned by the Italian embassy, was not adequately justified, as it referred only to previous denials.
