This round will be processed using a new version of online licensing system that is compatible with the following browsers – Internet Explorer, Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox and Safari. This new interface looks slightly different from the previous one but should result in faster processing and interaction for applicants.
All those applicants renewing should be in possession of valid usernames and passwords. In case of difficulties accessing system please contact the Travel Trade Team by emailing [email protected] or calling 01-6611700.
