This recognition takes the form of a decree issued by either the Ministero della Salute or the Regions. Prospective applicants can verify the competent institution for their specific case on the dedicated webpage of the Ministero della Salute.

This Consulate General is competent solely for endorsing the documentation certifying employment in the United Kingdom (including the so-called “Visto per Conferma”) and issuing declarations regarding the public nature or affiliation of employing institutes.

    1. Position/Role;
    2. Pay-band;
    3. Salary;
    4. Period of employment (if currently employed, the issue date of the certification will be used as the end date for the recognised period);Ward/Department (if employed in several wards/departments at the same time, main duties and tasks carried out should be specified);
    5. Type of contract (part time or full time);The certificate must bear the signature of an administrative officer and indications regarding the signatory’s role (e.g. Finance Director, HR Director, Director of Workforce etc.).
      Please Note: Applicants are strongly recommended to verify that their certificate contains all above information, before submitting their application for endorsement to the Notary Department.
  3. Accurate and complete Italian translation of the certificate of employment in editable format (Word or RTF);
