Nov 12, 2020 By eChinacities.com

Macao is set to allow select foreigners from mainland China to enter the special administrative region for the first time since the COVID-19 lockdown, Xinhua reports. Starting on December 1, foreigners who are not permanent residents of mainland China, Hong Kong or Taiwan can enter Macao from China as long as they have stayed on the mainland for at least 14 consecutive days.

Macau to grant entry to foreigners

The announcement, made by Macau’s Coronavirus Response and Coordination Center on Monday, instructed eligible foreigners to send an application to the region’s health authorities for approval. The authorities will then decide whether or not to grant access on a case-by-case basis.

Eligible foreigners include:

-Resident permit holders
-Holders of non-resident work permits and other work permits
-Family members of work permit holders who have stay permits
-Those accepted to Macau universities and colleges
-Those coming to Macau for important business, academic or professional purposes

As of Monday this week, Macau had no community transmission of COVID-19, no confirmed local cases for 225 days and no imported cases for 136 days.

Watched a video last night, sale is common scene in Macau currently. For those who like to shop, it is a great opportunity for bargain. Hotels also lowered the room rates at this moment.

On the other hand , Hong Kong will soon reopen the borders to mainland businessman without the 14 days quarantine requirement provided the number of new cases recorded are lesser than double digit.

Foreigners who are currently in China are basically those with resident permit and work visa. In other words, Macau new rules only applies to them.
