Macau authorities have revised the health code requirements for mainland Chinese visitors.
Macau.- The Macau government has announced it will update its health code. Visitors from mainland China will have to provide new information.
According to local media reports, the new health code will include information on vaccination status and whether people have previously contracted Covid-19.
Authorities said that Macau residents and mainland Chinese residents’ vaccination dates will be added to the updated health code, which is required for people who want to enter Macau.
Macao Government Tourism Office (MGTO) director Maria Helena de Senna Fernandes reported that the number of visitor arrivals to Macau increased by several thousand last week.
Fernandes said she believes Macau may see an average nightly hotel occupancy rate of between 70 per cent to 80 per cent during the summer holiday months of July and August.
The MGTO hopes for an average daily rate of 30,000 visitors during the summer holidays.
Mainland China will continue to be the only country to have a largely quarantine-free travel bubble with Macau.
