HK reminds e-voucher registrants of deadline for corrections
The Hong Kong government on Sunday (Sept. 12) reminded those who registered for the Consumption Voucher Scheme but submitted inaccurate or incomplete information that they have until Wednesday to make the necessary corrections.
In a statement issued on Sunday morning, a government spokesman said these applicants may resubmit their registrations by Sept. 15 in person or by a trusted representative at the Consumption Voucher Scheme Secretariat on 17/F, Pioneer Centre, 750 Nathan Road, Mongkok, Kowloon.
They may also submit their documents to any of the temporary service centres at the General Post Office in Central, Wan Tau Tong Neighbourhood Community Centre in Wan Tau Tong Estate, Tai Po, and Leung King Community Centre in Leung King Estate, Tuen Mun. All four locations will be open from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. until Sept. 15.
The spokesman emphasized that the arrangement is not applicable to those who were confirmed to be ineligible or those who did not register from July 4 to Aug. 14.
Registrants with confirmed eligibility will receive disbursement of the first voucher of HK$2,000 on Oct. 1, the spokesman said.
In general, they will receive an SMS notification informing them of their registration result about one week after submission of registration, he added.
The spokesman said people who have registered but are not sure of their registration status can check the SMS message from the government or enquire through the interactive voice response system of the hotline 185000.
