GovHK (www.gov.hk) is the one-stop portal of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region Government featuring the most sought-after public services and information to make them easier to access and use by members of the public. Ever since the launch of the portal, the OGCIO, in collaboration with government departments, has been striving to better the services in various facets of the portal, such as introducing more online services to accommodate the different needs of users, enriching the content and bringing in multi-media for more vivid content delivery, as well as enhancing the user interface and layout design for more pleasant navigation.
To make interaction between citizens and the Government more efficient and effective, in 2010, we launched the account-based, personalised platform MyGovHK (www.gov.hk/mygovhk/en) on the GovHK portal to provide public services and information tailored to the individual needs of users. In January 2014, we also launched the mobile version of MyGovHK with easy navigation and simple interface design, offering users of mobile devices greater convenience.
Citizens can create their own MyGovHK accounts for direct access to their selected government services. Major functions of MyGovHK include:
My Online Services – link up your MyGovHK account with the "Easy Sign-on" online services to enjoy single access, e.g. eTAX, electronic demands for rates and government rent (eRVD Bill) and outbound travel information. You can also organise your own lists of frequently used online services;
My Subscriptions – subscribe to government notifications, e.g. food alerts, information on large-scale job fairs and reminders for vehicle licence renewal;
My Messages – view messages from different online services and MyGovHK, e.g. messages from Demand for Rates and/or Government Rent and Registration of Outbound Travel Information, etc.Create your MyGovHK account now to enjoy a variety of features and functions!
With MyGovHK as the bedrock for growing personalised government services, the OGCIO will continue to work with government departments to bring in more online services and to launch more new functions for the benefit and convenience of the citizens.
