Because of Law 183/2011 Article 15, starting from 01/01/2012, certificates to be produced for public administrations or public services operators (for example: Poste, Permit of stay, Study visa, Embassy, Consulate…) can not be issued nor accepted.
Interested parties, in the cases above, can only produce self-certifications, which have to be accepted, according to the mentioned law. (self-certifications fac simile).
Those who require certificates to be produced to entities other than public administrations or public service operators, have to ask them to the central PhD Secretariat bringing:
- a stamp of Euro 16.00 to be put on the certificate application form (.pdf);
- a stamp of Euro 16.00 to be put on each requested certificate.
Stamps can be bought from tobacconist shops.
Be careful, in these certificates with stamps it's written: "This certificate is not valid for public administrations and public services operators".
