To improve customer service, the Immigration Service Delivery (ISD) will begin a trialling the use of electronic signatures (e-signatures) on letters issued to some EU Treaty Rights applicants.
An e-signature is an electronic version of a deciding officer’s original signature.
From 19 September 2022 to 31 December 2022, some applicants who submit an application on form EUTR 1 may receive a temporary permission letter or a final decision letter with an e-signature of the deciding officer. It is envisaged that these will only be issued to applicants residing in the Dublin area initially, with scope to extend that to countrywide applications in the future.
These letters are valid documents.
If an applicant does not wish to receive a temporary permission or final decision letter with an e-signature, they may contact firstname.lastname@example.org to request a letter with a ‘wet signature’ (original signature, not eletronic).
