Frequently asked questions about the e-service

You cannot apply on someone else’s behalf

It is not yet possible to complete or send an application on someone else’s behalf. When you log in to OmaKela with your own personal credentials, any application you complete or transmit while there will automatically go into your record. Therefore, do not complete or send applications for someone else online.
