Verification of documents for Family Reunification Visa Applications



Verification of documents for Family Reunification Visa Applications

Regarding the request for Family Reunification visas, the Italian Embassy informs the applicants that, as of February 5th 2017, it will carry out a comprehensive review of the documents submitted in support of the applications at the expense of the parties concerned, in accordance with the Decree of the President of the Italian Republic n.394 of August 31st 1999, art.2.

As of that date, each family must complete and present the attached form, together with the other generally required documents (application form, marriage certificate, Green Book, birth certificates, taskira, a copy of the residence permit of the family members living in Italy, etc.). The cost for the documents verification is 350 US Dollars per household/family, regardless of the number of members and the documents submitted. Such cost has to be paid through a bank transfer before the appointment and a payment receipt should be submitted alongside the other documents (click here for bank transfer from Afghanistan; click here for bank transfer from abroad). This amount is added to the visa fee (136 US Dollars) to be paid cash at the Visa Section. 

While expecting the verification results of the documents presented in support of the visa application, the calculation of the time needed for the processing of the request is suspended in accordance with the Ministerial Decree n.171 of March 3rd 1995, Article 6.
