iAM Smart registration spots set up

The Office of the Government Chief Information Officer (OGCIO) has set up self-registration kiosks and mobile registration teams to help people register for the one-stop personalised digital services platform iAM Smart.   More than 110,000 users have registered for iAM Smart since its launch in late December last year.   With the rolling out of the COVID-19 Vaccination Programme, members of the public will be provided with a hard copy of vaccination records after their jabs. They can also download their electronic vaccination records using the iAM Smart mobile app.   To support the registration for iAM Smart, the OGCIO has deployed mobile registration teams at the 15 Community Vaccination Centres currently in operation. The service hours of the mobile registration teams at the centres are from 9.30am to 1.30pm, and from 2.30pm to 5.30pm daily.   The OGCIO has also set up self-registration kiosks at 18 locations throughout the city. Nine of the kiosks are in MTR stations and the rest in shopping centres and sports centres.   More self-registration kiosks and mobile registration teams will be deployed at appropriate locations subject to further demand.   People can register as iAM Smart users by downloading its mobile app or visiting the registration service counters at any of the 121 post offices.   iAM Smart provides four major functions, including authentication, form filling, personalised notification and digital signing. Users can log in and access online services with a single digital identity with their mobile phones.   Currently, more than 30 online services can be accessed through iAM Smart, including COVID-19 electronic vaccination and testing records, eTAX, online application for renewal of vehicle licence, eRVD Bill, change of address, MyGovHK, eHealth and online services of the two electricity and gas companies.
