Authorities in Macau have announced the opening of a new 24-hour border checkpoint with the city of Zhuhai, in the neighbouring province of Guangdong, from September 8.

Macau.- The government of Macau has announced a new border checkpoint between Macau and the city of Zhuhai, in Guangdong, to open from September 8. It will be the first border crossing for pedestrians between the two cities.

Last week, authorities in Macau announced a relaxation in border entry requirements and an extension for the validity of negative Covid-19 tests to seven days for people coming from Guangdong.

Macao Government Tourism Office director Maria Helena de Senna Fernandes has predicted Macau could receive 25,000 visitors per day during the October Golden Week in the first seven days of October. Last year, the number of visitors entering the city surpassed 20,000 a day on average.

The news comes after no new local Covid-19 cases of Covid-19 emerged following mass testing.

Guangdong has also eased travel-related limitations for outbound travellers amid a decline in the number of Chinese destinations deemed high-risk for Covid-19.
