This page will appear when you're signing up for Tom Clancy's The Division 2 beta. It's all very straight forward.

The sign-up option involves some simple steps. Select the platform on which you’d like to play the game – whether that be Xbox One, PS4 or PC. Sign in to a Uplay account. If you don’t have one already, simply sign up with them online. From there, confirm your email address and register your interest.

The only downside to online beta sign-ups like this is that you’re not guaranteed to receive a code, but it seems like you can still request one even though the beta has offically went live.
