The Central Epidemic Command Center (CECC) announced on March 23 that the second round of online ordering under the name-based rationing system for face masks will commence on March 25. Members of the public who would like to order face masks online are welcome to do so from that date.
The CECC pointed out that the online ordering procedures for the second round will be similar to those for the first round, with one notable difference being that the second round has been shortened, enabling those who order online to quickly collect their face masks. Key aspects of the second round are as follows:
1. People can place online orders from 08:00 on March 25 (Wed.) to 20:00 on March 27 (Fri.) by verifying their identity with their NHI card or Citizen Digital Certificate or through the NHI Administration’s National Health Insurance Express mobile app.
2. Those who have successfully placed an online order will be requested to complete the related payment between 08:00 on March 28 (Sat.) and 20:00 on March 30 (Mon.) by ATM transfer or credit card.
3. Those who have successfully placed an online order and completed the payment will receive a text message on March 31 (Tue.) or April 1 (Wed.) with an order pickup number.
4. The face masks can be collected from April 2 (Thu.) to April 8 (Wed.) with the order pickup number and ID of the person who placed the order (i.e., National ID Card, Resident Certificate, NHI card, driver’s license) at a designated convenience store. Simply input the order pickup number and ID number at the convenience store’s kiosk system (e.g., ibon, FamiPort, Life-ET, OK·go), print the pickup form, and give the form to store staff.
