Paper-based forms are still available for now but will be withdrawn from availability in January 2020. Therefore, we recommend you begin using the online version of Y1 as soon as possible. Paper-based forms will continue to be accepted and processed until 1 February 2020. After this time, all Y1 applications will need to be completed using the online forms.
In some exceptionally rare circumstances, an applicant may need to access a paper-based Y1 form after this date. In such cases, permission will be required from your Region Commissioner and the paper form will be supplied and processed by the Region Office Manager.
