Revenue stamp

Marca da bollo

The Italian marca da bollo (revenue stamp) is a holographic barcode adhesive label, very similar to postage stamps, used by the Government to collect a tax on public documents.

Starting from 26th June 2013, the general purpose revenue stamp in use at the University of Padova has a value of € 16.

  Authorised dealers and usage

Revenue stamps can be immediately printed on demand at authorised tobaconnists.

The usage is very simple: the adhesive label must be applied to documents when needed. Documents completed with a marca da bollo must not be delivered by fax but exclusively by post (including A/R registered letters with return receipt) or by hand in person.
