Italy Tourist Visa Rejected

Hi There,

Currently am working in Italy and my wife applied for Italy tourist visa

(90 days stay).

I have kept all valid documents for her sponsorship,stay, insurance and return ticket.

But the visa is rejected doubting her return before the expiry of tourist visa.

My doubt is whether we can re-apply for the italy tourist visa?

Is there any timeframe that we need to wait for re-applying?

Now how to get the italy tourist visa for my spouse

Hi rss!

Sorry to hear about that.
I hope other members will be able to advise you soon!


Hi Rss.. I have faced the same exact problem. I am now taking help through my official way to appeal legally in Rome against the refusal. Which country did you apply Visa from?

It is not expected that you have to wait some time before you resubmit the application for the tourist visa following a decision refusing.
But frankly I suggest you to do not represent the same request with the same document as you risk to get other refusal. You should get more info from the embassy so to understand the reasons for the denial and for the necessary corrections or additional documents.
Anyway, in case of further reject is possible to appeal to the Regional Administrative Court (TAR) of Lazio within 60 days from the notification date.



Hi there,

My tourist visa to Italy also was refused a month ago. The reasons are: Justification of purpose and conditions of the intended stay are not reliable; and intention of leaving the Member States can't be ascertained. Those reasons just drove me crazy.

Last two years, I applied the same (tourism visa 30 days, sponsored by a friend, provided all required documents) and I got my visa. This time, I also applied for tourism visa 90 days, sponsored by same person, provided all documents but they refused.

Known that bureaucracy in Italy is famous so I didn't bother to apply an appeal, it takes 60 days to process, and you may wait super long, and I don't want to spend more time on this.

I called the embassy, sent email to the visa officer asking her what more should i provide and how long i can re-apply. She didn't give any obvious answer nor even explain me. But she said I can reapply whenever I want. So i decide I will wait 1 more month to reapply but this time i request 30 days tourist visa only. I'm making new travel insurance, book new ticket, make new bank statement, new letter from my company, new holiday leave request signed by my company. By my bf side, he is making new bank guarantee and invitation letter for me.

I hope this time it will be more luckier.

Hi there
You can still apply after 90 days from the last apply

Hi Caren1993,
Just wondering,,,did you get the visa?

The ultimate decision to grant a visa (in any country) is always made by the Visa Issuing Officer. Applications are judged on a case-by-case basis, using the documents submitted, and if an interview is involved the answers given during the interview. No two cases are the same and applicant's situations may change so even having previoulsly obtained a visa, is no guarantee that one would be granted on any subsequent application. If your visa is refused look at your conditions, improve what you can, and apply again.... simple as that.

In my case they did.

You mind sharing the answer from the embassy. I got the exact same reply and despite of using all my judgement, I find it difficult to understand what happened.

Hi Marco, I had a different question. Not sure if this is the right way to post, but here goes.  I have a PDS that is expiring.  I am a US citizen. My husband is Italian which makes it a tiny bit easier(not much) We have just changed residence  from Genova to Deva Marina and I just got a new passport(my dog ate the old one) I have a feeling these things are going to make renewal more challenging. Could you direct me to a wesite that might make me more prepared for what I need to do and to have for application? I am in US right now and I will need to apply the second I arrive in June, so I want to be on top of it. Thank you so much. Cecile

hey your last visa was rejected or you got visa plzz reply ( i have same refusel from vfs )
