Macau health authorities have announced stricter measures for travellers.
Macau.- Macau health authorities have stepped up Covid-19 measures for visitors from Hong Kong as cases escalate in the region. People arriving in Macau via the Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macau Bridge will have to wait at the boundary-crossing point for the result of a Covid-19 test, the results of which may take up to six hours to obtain.
According to Macau’s Novel Coronavirus Response and Coordination Centre, those with a negative result will be taken to a medical observation hotel for a 14-day quarantine. Positive cases will have to isolate and go on through treatment at a dedicated clinical centre.
Authorities also announced that, from February 21, people aged 12 or over setting off from either Hong Kong or Taiwan will have to show proof of vaccination against Covid-19 before they are allowed to travel to Macau.
Macau has relaxed quarantine requirements for Taiwan visitors. They will now need to stay in a medical observation hotel for 14 days down from 21 days. Travellers will then need to undergo a seven-day health self-management period, during which they need to be tested on the 1st, 2nd, 4th and 7th days.
