Why Is Macau Not Allowing Indian Tourists?

The government of Macau recently announced that it would allow the entry of tourists from only 41 countries, starting from Thursday, 1st September 2022. These 41 countries include the United States of America (USA), Japan, Australia, among others. Unfortunately, India is not on the list of 41 countries.

This decision will restrict Indian tourists from entering the Special Administrative Region of the People’s Republic of China. However, India is not the only Asian country to be barred. The list also excludes other Asian nations including Sri Lanka, Pakistan, and Afghanistan. 

The Chief Executive of Macau on behalf of the Macau government issued an order no. 166/2022 that prohibits the entry of non-residents into the country. The decision was taken in accordance with the latest directives from the Health Bureau. It will allow only citizens of the 41 countries. However, according to the COVID-19 protocols in the country, they too will have to furnish reports showing they test COVID-19 negative and have to undergo a seven-day quarantine period.

As per the Health Bureau directive, “Holders of valid passports from the 41 countries mentioned above may enter Macau from countries and regions other than Hong Kong, Taiwan and Mainland China.”

It further added, “Foreign passport holders are still required to present a negative nucleic acid test certificate at the time of boarding the plane, vehicle or ship and at the time of entry, while those entering Macau from countries and regions other than Hong Kong, Taiwan or Mainland China are required to hold a confirmation of hotel booking for isolation in Macau, a certificate of booking for routine nucleic acid testing during the isolation period, and undergo at least seven days of intensive medical observation in isolation and three days of self-health management upon entry.”

Due to the outbreak of the COVID-19, the country had restricted foreign tourists by closing its borders on 17th March 2020. Thereafter, it’s been almost 30 months now that the country has been closed to tourists.
