The Court of Final Appeal (Chinese: 終審法院; Portuguese: Tribunal de Ultima Instancia) is the court with the final adjudication power on laws of Macau Special Administrative Region of the People's Republic of China. Prior to 1999, the highest court was the Higher Court of Justice (Superior Court of Justice) of Macao and prior to that the Court of Appeal of the Judiciary District of Lisbon in Portugal.

Under the Basic Law of Macau, which is the constitutional document of the region, Macau remains the previous legal jurisdiction. On the other hand, the power of interpretation of the Basic Law itself, being part of the national law, is vested in the Standing Committee of the National People's Congress of China (NPCSC) in accordance with the Basic Law. However, the same Article delegates such power to the courts of Macau for interpretation while handling court cases.
