Appeal against the refusal of a visa for medical treatment in Italy.
Rights of foreign citizens to receive medical care in Italy.
The visa for medical treatment in Italy is governed by Art. 36 of the Law on Immigration n. 286/1998 and the Inter-Ministerial Decree n. 850/2011.
The foreigner who intends to receive medical treatment in Italy may obtain a specific visa and resident permit. In order to apply for this kind of visa, the concerned person must submit a statement of the Italian medical center stating the type of care, the period of the treatment and the estimated duration of the therapeutic treatment.
The applicant also must certify the deposit of a sum as guarantee, taking into account the estimated cost of health services required, as well as adequate economic means and the disposal of an accomodation in Italy.
The visa for medical treatment may be issued also in favor of the person who accompanies the sick person, provided they can demonstrate adequate financial means not less than the amount determined by the Interior Ministry.
The application can also be submitted by a family member or anyone else who can act on behalf of the applicant.
Against the refusal of a visa for medical treatment, the applicant can submit an appeal to the Regional Administrative Court of Lazio (T.A.R. of Lazio) within 60 days from notification. The assistance of an Italian lawyer is required by law.
