Macau received 30,105 visitors on November 12 and a daily average rate of 25,433 visitors between November 5 and November 11.
Macau.- The Macao Government Tourism Office (MGTO) has reported that average daily visits continue to increase. November 12 saw the highest figure of tourist arrivals since the beginning of the month with a total of 30,105 visitors.
The average daily rate of visitors was 25,433 between November 5 and November 11 inclusive. The increase, when compared to the first weeks of the previous month, was mainly attributed to relaxation in some travel restrictions.
In October, Ho Iat Seng, Macau’s chief executive, said people who plan to travel outside Macau would no longer need to present a negative Covid-19 test issued within 24 hours of departure. Despite a recovery from October when average daily visitors were 10,622, the figure is still far from pre-pandemic levels. Authorities expect to return to 2019 numbers by 2025.
Macau tourism office director Maria Helena de Senna Fernandes noted that after the lifting of Covid-19 restrictions, the MGTO launched a campaign to promote the city as a safe destination. Mainland China continues to be the only country to have a largely quarantine-free travel bubble with Macau.
