2. If you did not log in using with Facebook, you may have forgotten your password. Simply click on Forgot my password and a new password will be sent to your email address.
3. You may have used a different email address or made a mistake while typing it when you first registering to the system (for example, typing email@example.com instead of firstname.lastname@example.org). In such case, contact support and provide your Applicant ID.

Filling the Form

A: The system allows progressing to the next step only after all mandatory questions (marked with a red star) were answered. Scroll up to find the missing answer – It will be marked with a red message, such as: This field is mandatory.
Q: What is my Applicant Number (or Applicant ID)?
A: The Applicant ID (for example, 200-5-44333) is a unique number each applicant receives when first registering to the system. It is used to easily track an applicant on the admin system, or provide support to this applicant. Please note that the dashes between the numbers are important and should not be ignored. When contacting support, please provide your Applicant ID.

A: Sure! Simply click on the Continue Later button and the system will save your work. You will be able to return to the system at any time and to complete registration, using the Sign In window.
