Macao has expanded its border restrictions with visitors from all nations other than mainland China, Hong Kong, and Taiwan now banned from entering. Non-resident workers are an exception.

The escalation follows confirmation of Macao’s 12th case of coronavirus, with a 47-year-old Spanish businessman testing positive after arriving in Macao via Beijing on Monday.

Macao did not register new cases for over a month from 4 February with 10 patients have recovered and been discharged, but the second round of cases imported from Europe and other countries outside China has resulted in these new restrictions.

Residents returning from mainland China, Hong Kong, and Taiwan will not be required to undergo a 14-day quarantine. 

Visitors from high-risk provinces and cities in mainland China are still required to undergo six to eight hours of medical observation once arriving in Macao.
