Visa denials

It should also be kept in mind that an alien cannot be considered as having a “right” to a visa but rather a simple “legitimate interest”. Denials must be justified and communicated to the person in question in a language understandable to that person or, short of that, in English, French, Spanish or Arabic.

Persons denied visas may lodge a claim with the Tribunale Amministrativo Regionale (T.A.R.) (regional administrative court) of Lazio within 60 days of receipt of notification of denial.

In the case of visas denied for joining or accompanying family members only eventual claims can be made to the authorised regular court.

The Avvocatura di Stato (government legal service) must be notified of eventual claims
