Default Family Information IMM5707e Signature

Hi

I am in the process of filling my IEC online application. I must complete a IMM5707e Family Information form. I don't know how I can sign it.

It is not clear. I am in the document checklist. I click on the form and it opens a new window. I can't see the document in the browser because I am using a mac so I have to right click and "download as" and then open it with adobe. I can fill in all the fields on the form on the computer but I cannot enter anything in the signature field.

The only option is to upload a file but I still don't know if I need to print, sign and scan or just fill in without signing and upload unsigned.

I've been told that I can upload the unsigned document because at the end of the online application I have to digitally sign for the documents I upload anyway but I am not sure how true this is. I don't want to risk a returned application.

Is it best to print and then scan it back in?

Does anyone know?

.. the first line, in bold, is "This is your electronic signature. Do not print out your application form to sign it."

Yep, I read that. I must be thick then, because it still has a confusing signature box on the forms. It should be on the forms that you don't need to sign it, because actually on the forms it insists on a signature (creating the confusion). Thanks x

The forms just haven't been updated (in design at least) since it was a paper application, pre 2013.

They've had the instructions not to physically sign, but to electronically sign at the end, for the last 6 years

For that particular form either works. Printing out, signing/rescanning, uploading or uploading unsigned.
