What does it mean to authorise someone?
The person who you authorise
- can call the UDI and talk to us on your behalf
- will have right of access to information about your case
- will receive enquiries from the immigration authorities about your case
- will receive the decision in your case once the case has been considered and have to notify you of the decision.
If you authorise someone, this person, and not you, will be contacted by the immigration authorities about matters concerning your case.
How do you authorise someone when you hand in the application?
It is easiest to authorise someone when you hand in the application.
- If you register your application at the Application Portal, you will receive a Power of attorney form by email together with your cover letter, which you can fill in. Please bring it when you are going to hand in the application at the embassy or the police.
- If you cannot use the Application Portal, you can fill in the Power of attorney form (pdf, 684 kB) and bring it when you are going to hand in the application at the embassy or the police.
How do you authorise someone after you have handed in the application?
If you did not hand in a Power of attorney form when you handed in the application, you can do so now.
- Fill in the Power of attorney form (pdf, 684 kB). Remember to sign the form.
- Make a copy of your passport (the page with personal information and signature) or other valid identification document where your signature is visible.
- Send the form and a copy of your identification document to the UDI.
