The Identification Services Bureau (DSI) officially launched the Online Management System of Association and Foundation on 16 January 2020, through which persons in charge of associations and foundations can register, check and update the information about members of the leadership structure at any time and apply for the Certificate of the Leadership Structure. The online management system has been running on a trial basis since 26 December 2019, which enables citizens to lodge applications without the need of in-person visits to the department. Besides, the issuing time of the certificate was shortened from 12 working days to 3 working days, making it possible to go through all formalities “in one visit”.
The online management system targets the president and director of associations and foundations, who are able to log in to the system with the account of “Common Access to Public Services of the Macao SAR”. If other persons are required to manage information and handle applications in the system, the president and director can designate up to three administrators through the online system or by submitting an application form to DSI. The relevant form can be downloaded from DSI’s website (www.dsi.gov.mo/formsdownload_e.jsp). In addition, if the association or foundation has never elected the members of the leadership structure, the founder who has been approved to use the name of the association or foundation may use this system to register the first member list of the leadership structure.
Eligible persons can use the above-mentioned service after logging in to the system through DSI’s website (www.dsi.gov.mo; click the “Online Management System of Association and Foundation” button under “Association and Foundation Application Service” in the “Online Services” zone). For the online application for the Certificate of the Leadership Structure, the certificate can be collected within 3 working days upon DSI’s confirmation of the newly registered member list of the leadership structure by presenting the receipt and making the payment at DSI or other designated service locations.
For more information about the service, please refer to DSI’s website (www.dsi.gov.mo), or call 2837-0777 or 2837-0888 for inquiries.
