Quarantine-free travel between the mainland, Hong Kong and Macao is in sight, Secretary for Economy and Finance Lei Wai Nong has said.
Outlining his portfolio’s policy guidelines for the coming year at the Legislative Assembly last Friday, Lei also pledged that the government will continue to ask the central government to allow mainland tour groups to come to Macao again next year.
Last week, Health Bureau (SSM) officials said that Macao could lift its quarantine for arrivals from Hong Kong once quarantine-free travel has been arranged between the mainland and Hong Kong.
Currently, travellers between the mainland and Macao do not need to quarantine upon arrival, but do need to present a nucleic acid test certificate confirming a negative Covid-19 result valid for seven days.
Travellers from Hong Kong must undergo 14 days’ hotel quarantine upon arrival in the mainland or in Macao.
Hong Kong residents returning from the mainland or Macao can apply online to be exempted from the Hong Kong government’s quarantine requirement.
