How to Apply for A Category Two ID

  1. Have pictures ready. Pictures should be in .jpg or .png format, and should not be more than 10 MB in size, each. The easiest way to ensure this would be to snap the photo with your smartphone. Make sure the background is clear and uniform (a single color background), avoid shooting outdoors or in front of windows or ornaments.
  2. Click the link below. You'll be asked to sign-in. You'll need to use a Google account here (all accounts are Google accounts). It doesn't have to be the same email you submitted to the school, it just has to be any Gmail account. Once you're inside the form, fill in the email you submitted to the school (we will cross-check to make sure you are actually a parent).
  3. Fill in the full name and upload a picture of the person you want the id to be issued to. Once you submit the filled form, you'll see an option for submitting more responses. Remember, you can only apply for up to 3 IDs.
  4. Once you're done, check your email's inbox, you should see response receipts. That's it!! Within 7 working days, we'll let you know when and where to pick up your IDs.
