Here’s how

1) Download the form

Save the form as a PDF file, either on your computer’s desktop or in a folder. This is an important first step, because certain web browsers won’t save your information after editing.

2) Open the form

You might need to right-click your mouse or track-pad and choose ‘Open with > Adobe Acrobat Reader’

3) Type your details into the form

The form is an ‘editable’ PDF, which means you can select individual fields for filling in your details, as follows:

a)    Using your mouse or track-pad, right-click the document.

b)    Select either the Hand tool or the Select tool from the pop-up menu.

c)    The pointer changes to a different icon as you move it over a field. For example, the Hand tool changes to an an icon that looks like a capital “I” when you can type text into the form field. Some text fields can automatically resize to accommodate the amount of text that you enter.

d)    Click to select options, such as radio buttons. Click inside a text field to type. Press Tab to move forward or Shift+Tab to move backward.

e)    Once you’ve completed the form, you don’t need to sign it. Instead, in the Print Name field, please type in your full name.

f)     OPTIONAL: If you prefer, you can sign the form using the Adobe Print & Sign function.

4) Save your form
