Application form on-line
The European Court of Human Rights has launched a new service on a trial basis
to enable applicants to fill out the Court’s application form on-line via its
internet site. Initially, this service will be available only
for applicants using Swedish or
Dutch application forms. Depending on the outcome of the trial, it may
subsequently be extended to the other official languages of the member States of
the Council of Europe.
When filling out the form, applicants can save their changes at any stage and
can then return to complete the form at any time. Once the form is fully
completed the applicant can submit it. This will
trigger a service which will automatically send via email the completed version
of the form in PDF format to the applicant who must then print it, sign it and
post it on to the Court, with any relevant annexes and within the time-limit
The Court reserves the right to withdraw this service at any time.
