You may grant written authorisation for a third party to

  • examine your documents
  • request information on your application, or
  • ask about the status of your application.

 We give information only to the person named in the authorisation. The authorised person cannot receive information that the person issuing the authorisation has no right to get.

If you want to submit a residence permit application, you nearly always need to visit a service point in person.

The authorisation must have the signature of the person issuing the authorisation. A counsel’s signature is not accepted. Attach the authorisation to the information request form.
