  • All visitors by prior appointment are required to wear surgical masks and take body temperature check before entering the Office. Those with symptoms such as fever or cough will be advised to seek medical assistance and not to enter the Office.


The Office will review the situation regularly and prepare for full resumption of normal services when conditions permit.
