Good news for gambling industry in Macau as the Hong Kong government announced in a news statement early on Thursday that it will “further adapt” anti-Covid-19 measures starting that day, “with a view to enabling individuals to resume their normal everyday routines”.
Hong Kong’s Chief Executive, John Lee Ka-chiu, announced the adjustments on Wednesday.
Importantly, for incoming travel from Macau and elsewhere, the changes include the elimination of on-arrival and post-arrival screening by polymerase chain reaction (PCR) testing.
Some mobility restrictions for arriving visitors to Hong Kong were already lifted on December 13. With effect from December 23, Macau eliminated the need for even home-based quarantine after inbound travels to Macau from Hong Kong, Taiwan, and elsewhere.
The city’s administration will also abolish the city’s Vaccine Pass program and repeal all social exclusionary restrictions, with the exception of mask wear.
Even with the revised regulations, visitors to Hong Kong must still undergo a PCR test or a rapid antigen test (RAT) before leaving their home country. Additionally, it is recommended that all newcomers take RATs during the first six days of their stay in Hong Kong.
