The booking link of the Citywide NAT Programme is: https://eservice.ssm.gov.mo/allpeoplernatestbook; relevant test results will not be displayed on the Macao Health Code, and cannot be used for immigration purposes.

For those who get tested at self-paid NAT stations, their test results will be uploaded to the Macao Health Code for immigration purposes, and will be counted in the citywide NAT programme. Prior booking is also strictly required (link: https://eservice.ssm.gov.mo/rnatestbook/V21/ or https://app.ssm.gov.mo/kkhtbook).

Before going to the NAT stations to get tested, the public must first perform a rapid antigen test (RAT) by themselves at home. If tested negative, go to the NAT station for sampling as scheduled. Upon entry into the NAT station, present a health code containing a RAT negative result or a photo showing a RAT negative result; otherwise, such entry would be denied.

If the RAT result is positive, regardless of whether having fever, respiratory symptoms or other discomfort, the concerned individual should call an ambulance (Tel: 119, 120 or 2857 2222) and report the result through the Macao Health Code. The declarant and the co-living individuals must stay home and wait patiently for being transferred to the quarantine site by the designated ambulance.

During the Citywide NAT, each participating resident will be given 10 rapid antigen tests and 20 pieces of KN95 face masks; residents are advised to bring their own bag for materials collection. Please remember to collect as re-collection would not be available.

Besides, there is no exemption period for this round of citywide NAT programme, individuals in Macao who remain untested after 19:00 tomorrow (31 July) will be assigned a Macao Health Code in yellow colour. According to relevant regulations, yellow code holders may not be allowed to enter public places, take public transport or leave the city. They will be taken by the police to a designated venue to undergo sampling, and will not be allowed to leave the venue until their test returns as negative. People who refuse to take the test will be subject to medical observation at designated venue for 14 days.
