Starting from May 5, entry requirements for eligible foreigners travelling between Chinese mainland and Macao have been lifted, according to Executive Order No. 71/2021 of Macao SAR.
The Macao SAR government announced the news on Tuesday during a regular press conference of the Novel Coronavirus Coordination and Response Centre.
The measures apply to foreigners meeting the following conditions:
The updated rule lifted a requirement for such eligible foreigners to stay on the mainland for 21 days before being able to return to Macao.
Enter Macao for the purpose of reunion with family members or having close connection with Macao;
Have not travelled to any place outside either Chinese mainland or Macao in the 21 days prior to the intended arrival to Macao.

For example, an eligible foreign passport holder who does not have a Chinese mainland visa issued by the Office of the Commissioner of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the People’s Republic of China in the Macao SAR, may return to Macao – under the new rule – without being required to stay on the mainland for 21 consecutive days.
