I have already registered as a new user at the Online Application System, but I still have not received the email with the reference number and password of my account. What should I do? Should I register again?2019-07-08T11:34:23+08:00

Applicants might not be able to receive/locate the email promptly due to the following reasons:

  • Incorrect/illegible email address supplied;
  • Insufficient capacity of the email account;
  • The email was directed to the junk mail box.

If you have exhausted the above possibilities, another reason may be that the service provider of your email account might spam the email we send (which will cause a delay of delivery).  We therefore suggest applicants wait for 2 days upon the first registration of account at our online system.  If you are still not able to receive this email, please contact us by phone at 88224898.
