Schengen Visa appeal in Italy
Appeal against unfair Schengen Visa denials
Pursuant to EU and Italian Immigration Laws, a Schengen Visa is issued by Italian Embassies or Consulates in the country of citizenship or permanent residence of the foreign applicant.
Simultaneously with the issuance of the visa, the Italian diplomatic or consular authority shall notify to the applicant a written notice in a language that he can understand or in English, French, Spanish or Arabic. In this notice, Italian authority explains the rights and duties relating to the entry and residence in Italy.
If the applicant has not all requirements in order to obtain a visa, the Italian diplomatic or consular authority must communicate the denial to the applicant in a language that he can understand or in English, French, Spanish or Arabic.
With some exceptions of public order, the refusal must be justified and the consular officer must specify the specific reason of the denial to the applicant.
Generally, the consular office only gives a standardized response, extraneous to the specific case. For this reason, many times the Regional Administrative Court of Lazio accepted the appeal against the refusal of the visa, for lack of an adequate justification.
