Electronic Signatures Will Be Accepted Until Further Notice
To encourage people to limit their movements and in-person contact because of the COVID-19 pandemic, we announced last spring that we would accept electronic signatures for certain forms until September 1, 2020.
Given the continuing pandemic, we are extending this measure until further notice.
Forms that can be signed electronically
For information on which forms can be signed electronically and other details, see the “Electronic signatures” section on the COVID-19 FAQ pages below.
Accepted electronic signatures
We will accept the following types of electronic signatures:
- digital certificates generated using a specialized tool;
- scanned hand-written signatures (meaning an image of a signature);
- signatures made using an input tool such as a stylus or mouse.
