Yes. This phone normally has NFC functionality available for scanning NFC tags.
Unlike iPhones, NFC can be turned off within your settings. So, first thing is to make sure that NFC is on. Then, place the center of the back of your phone over the NFC tag. You will need to be within 3-4 cm / 1-2 inches. If it's not reading, move the phone around slowly. Once the tag has been scanned, it will launch the website (or other action) immediately.
If the NFC tag still isn't scanning, then you can try and move the phone as close as possible. You can even touch if required. If you have no response, then the next option is to check that the NFC tag has data or the correct data. Download NFC Tools or NXP's TagInfo App and scan the tag to make sure it actually has some data.
The NFC antenna on Android phones can vary but is almost always in the middle or upper-middle on the back of the phone. This illustration shows the typical location but move the tag around slowly at close distance to find the best location on your Huawei P30 Pro.
The performance of mobile phones with regards tag scanning varies considerably. In fact, it can vary across models and one phone from Huawei can perform quite differently from another phone in the Huawei range.
As a general rule, if your P30 Pro isn't scanning the NFC tag then first check that NFC is enabled in your settings.
The design and size of the tag antenna and the compatibility of this matched with the antenna within the phone can affect performance and distance considerably. Generally, the NTAG21x series chips perform better than the others in terms of scan distance but as with all things technical, test your P30 Pro against different tags before going to production.
