The request has to be made by the employer with a valid identity document, or a delegated by him, using the “modello 3-bis” (form 3-bis).

The request ccan be produced also by mail, enclosing a copy of a valid identity document.

  • € 16.00 for bollo [stamp duty] (n.b.: one stamp duty every two pages of the certificate)

Certificates to be issued on the same day of the request require the additional payment of:

  • € 3.92 for diritto d’urgenza [urgency fee]
