Macau now requires a 14-day quarantine instead of 21 days for arrivals from Hong Kong.
Macau.- The Macau government continues to ease Covid-19 restrictions. Health authorities have announced that arrivals from Hong Kong will now have to undergo a quarantine of 14 days instead of 21 days plus seven days of health self-management.
Those under self-management are not allowed to enter certain public areas, including casinos, and must take a nucleic acid test for Covid-19 at least one day before the end of the self-management period.
However, authorities have recently announced that a negative Covid-19 test result is no longer needed to enter Macau’s casinos.
According to analysts, the reinstatement of normal travel flows with Hong Kong would be a crucial step for a recovery of local gaming revenue as Hong Kong provides 10 to 15 per cent of Macau’s annual casino gross gaming revenue (GGR).
Macau’s secretary for economy and finance has recently announced the government will launch new stimulus measures for residents and programmes for employees, including those in the gaming industry.
