Access public services online with your Mobile Phone Signature or Citizen Card

There are two alternative forms of the Citizen Card:

  • Mobile Phone Signature: This requires a ready-to-receive mobile phone. The Mobile Phone Signature works with all mobile phones and is free of charge.
  • Smart card: This requires a smart card with activated Citizen Card functionality (e.g. e-card) and a smart card reading device.

The Mobile Phone Signature or a smart card with activated Citizen Card functionality (e.g. e-card) can be used for the creation of legally valid signatures in online procedures. These signatures are legally equivalent to handwritten signatures. This way, the mobile phone and your activated e-card become your virtual ID, which can be used to sign documents electronically.
