The permit to enter Italy is granted by the relevant Italian Embassies or Consulates, depending on the applicant’s residential address. The Italian diplomatic officials are responsible for checking the essential prerequisites for a Visa (for instance, proof of financial support, the intent of the journey, the provision of lodging in Italy).

Under what circumstances is a visa application denial warranted?

Art. 32 of Regulation (EC) No. 810/2009 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 13 July 2009 (establishing a Community Code on Visas) lists the reasons for refusing a visa, that are: presenting fraudulent or counterfeit documents; inability to explain the need and purpose for the proposed visit; lack of evidence of adequate financial resources for the duration of the stay or for returning to the home country; inability to meet the specific legal criteria for the visa being applied for; the applicant cannot show proof of sufficient and valid travel health insurance; there are valid suspicions about the genuineness of the supporting documents provided by the applicant; uncertainty about the applicant’s plan to exit the territory of the Member State before the visa expires (risk of illegal immigration); The applicant’s previous overstaying in the intended destination country; existence of a record in the SIS (Schengen Information System) for the purpose of denial of entry; the applicant is perceived as a risk to public order, domestic security, public health, or to the foreign relations of any of the Member States.
