Access to the information in a user account will only be available to the applicant and DHA so you must create a user account before you can submit an online Pre-application to apply for the DHA HCV wait list.

APPLICANTS WHO SELECTED PREFERENCES…

If a preference no longer applies to the applicant, it is their responsibility to remove it from their Café Account as all preferences will be verified upon coming off the wait list. If any applicant is unable to verify a preference they select, or found ineligible for a preference they select, the preference points for any non-qualified preference will be deducted and the pre-application will be returned to the wait list. The list will then be re-ordered to move the applicant to their qualified position based on any remaining preferences, then on date/time of application.
