Special approval for campus access should be sought at least 2 working days before the intended date of visit through the Visitor Registration System (VRS). A staff member or student who initiates the invitation (the “Requestor”) can make the request via the VRS. Once the visit is successfully registered and approved by HoU or his/her delegate, visitors will receive an email acknowledgment with a QR code for access to the campus. The Requestor will receive a confirmation email with details of the visit. For details, please refer to the VRS user guide at:
https://fmovrs.polyu.edu.hk/manual/Visitor-Registration-System-User-Guide-for-Staff.pdfpadlock-16
Visitor should present the QR Code at the QR code scanner at the turnstile for identity verification and can then access the campus through the turnstile.

A maximum of 5 visitors per Requestor can be filed via the VRS.
The Requestor can make changes of the visit by clicking the “Modify” function in the VRS.
The Requestor can use his/her own email address for receiving the QR code and he/she can inform the visitor the access code for verification at the Registration Counter.
Requestor (staff only) can make request and seek HoU’s or his/her delegate’s approval via the VRS upon the visitor’s arrival. Anyone failing to gain access via the turnstile can seek assistance at the Registration Counter.
