  • Timely submission: Appeals must be lodged within 60 days of receiving the refusal notice for most visa categories.

Procedure: Our Approach

  1. Initial Assessment: We begin by reviewing the refusal notice to understand the reasons for the denial and assess the viability of an appeal.
  2. Gathering Documentation: Collecting all necessary documents that support the appeal, including any additional evidence not previously submitted.
  3. Legal Representation: Engaging with an immigration lawyer experienced in Italian visa appeals to prepare and submit the appeal.
  4. Appeal Submission: Depending on the type of visa and grounds for refusal, appeals may be lodged with the Regional Administrative Tribunal (TAR) of Lazio or the Ordinary Court, as per Italian immigration law requirements.

Key Features of this Service

  • Document Preparation and Review: Assistance in preparing a comprehensive appeal dossier, including any new evidence.
  • Representation by Experienced Immigration Lawyers: Our team includes lawyers specialized in Italian immigration appeals, offering you the best chance of success.

Italian immigration law, including the Legislative Decree No. 286/1998 and the Visa Code (Regulation EC No. 810/2009), provides the legal framework for visa issuance and appeals against refusals. The law outlines specific criteria and conditions under which visas should be granted and the appeal process for refusals​​​​​​.

For a successful appeal, it's crucial to demonstrate that the refusal was based on incorrect or incomplete assessment of the application, providing additional evidence if necessary, and to argue against the reasons for refusal provided by the embassy or consulate.
