You can't get a DateTime variable with formatting like "dd/mm/aaaa". A string variable will do, like the one @jtoutou posted. Or
 
Dim dia As String = Today.Date.ToString("dd/MM/yyyy")

Try the following:
Dim d As Date = Now                 'Date
Dim day As Short = d.Date.Day       'Day
Dim month As Short = d.Date.Month   'Month
Dim year As Short = d.Date.Year     'Year

MsgBox(day.ToString("00") & "/" & month.ToString("00") & "/" & year.ToString("0000"))

Or deppending on your system setting (if this is you format ) you can use dia.ToShortDateString (for  variable always as a stirng Variable...)
