    No.  Registrants should provide an SMS-enabled local mobile phone number for receiving notifications from the Government and its contractors regarding the Scheme (including SMS messages requesting the registrants who choose to use identity card copy for identity authentication to upload a copy of their Hong Kong identity cards to complete the registration process) as far as possible. Registrants who do not have a local mobile phone number may consider providing an SMS-enabled local mobile phone number of their trusted relatives or friends, so as to avoid any delay in processing or non-processing of their registration by the Consumption Voucher Scheme Secretariat or relevant organisations due to the lack of means to contact them.
