The establishment of the Macao Post goes back to 1884.
In the early twentieth century, the former Macao Post took over the telegraph and telephone services, and was renamed as Post, Telegraph and Telephones Office (CTT), currently Post and Telecommunications. The establishment of the Macao Postal Savings also dates from this period.
Throughout its long history, CTT has taken over a number of functions and some ceased to be under its control.
Today, we are a service endowed with legal personality and administrative, financial and patrimonial autonomy.
CTT provides public postal service as well as regulates, supervises, promotes and coordinates all activities related to the telecommunications sector in the Macao SAR. Besides, CTT also assumes the function of a credit institution.
In order to meet the expectations of our customers, we started a thorough process of modernization in the new millennium, introducing new services and offering new functionalities that are in demand.
- In the Postal area, in addition to ensure operations related to postal traffic, guaranteeing universal postal services, we have diversified our business by engaging in new technologies. We provide Electronic Certification Services and Secure Electronic Postal Services, which are in line with the standards and regulations of UPU.
- As Macao’s telecommunications regulator, we expect local telecommunication services to follow international standards, thus enabling Macao to face future challenges. We promote the provision of excellent services by the operators, we look for a good business environment and encourage innovation and investment.

- The Macao Postal Savings, in addition to fulfilling the obligations of a credit institution, also provides the Electronic Payment Platform as an electronic payment channel for various public services, and through the operation of the Credit Data platform, realizes the sharing of personal credit information of customers of credit institutions in Macau.
