Macau’s new restrictions to visitors come in force to contain the spread of Coronavirus.

Macau.- Residents from Hong Kong and Taiwan that want to enter Macau city will be required to undergo a 14-day quarantine in one of the city’s designated quarantine hotels.

The new measures come after Hong Kong implemented similar requirements for anyone arriving in the SAR.

The restrictions, announced at a press conference on Tuesday morning, apply not only to residents of Hong Kong and Taiwan but also Macau residents who have visited any of those three jurisdictions. All foreign visitors, including those to have spent the previous 14 days in Hong Kong, mainland China or Taiwan, are barred from entering Macau, as are foreign non-resident workers known as blue cardholders.

Any residents of Hong Kong, mainland China or Taiwan who have been in any other foreign country in the past 14 days are also barred from entering Macau.

Macau residents returning from overseas via Hong Kong International Airport are still eligible to be transported by government-organized shuttle buses back to Macau, where they will undergo a 14-day quarantine.

No date has been given for restrictions on entering Macau to be eased.
