This ensures that your internet browser creates a secure connection with our government servers.

When you create a new user a window will appear on your current web page, you will not be directed to another one.

We recommend that the only browser window that you have open is the current one when dealing with your online applications. This will stop any potential malicious code on other websites you may be on from obtaining your log-in details or information.
