In the framework of the ‘Digital Court Project’, a new online system was launched by the courts as of 1 January 2020.
The new system (available at https://eakta.birosag.hu/) grants access for the clients to the e-files of court procedures initiated after 1 January 2020. Clients can get access to all documents submitted to the court during the procedure, from anywhere at any time.
To enter the online system, the client must have a customer account (‘ügyfélkapu’ in Hungarian) and an e-identification card, and must submit a request on the online platform to the court. Upon the client’s request, the court will grant the access to the documents. However, it is still possible to access the hard copies of the documents at the courts during opening hours of the customer service desk. It is also possible to calculate the estimated time frame of the procedure in this system (this function is also available for anyone at https://e-ugyintezes.birosag.hu/eljaras-idotartam-kalkulator).
