COVID-19 Testing Service for Targeted Groups

Note: Please also read the page on Compulsory Testing for Certain Persons.

Free COVID-19 testing at community testing centres (CTCs)

Persons of targeted groups eligible for receiving free COVID-19 testing at the CTCs are mainly those who are vaccinated or those who are unfit for vaccination because of health reasons. They must present valid medical certificates/vaccination records/documents of identity proof for receiving free tests. This requirement is applicable to all targeted groups. In other words, persons of targeted groups will need to pay for the regular testing service if they do not fall under the category of being unfit for vaccination because of health reasons.

The specific requirements for various targeted groups (including testing frequency, specimen requirement, conditions for receiving free test) are set out in the Annex.
