THE M3: MACAU VISAS

THE MACAU METRO MONITOR, JANUARY 16, 2014

GOVT KNOWS OF NO CHANGES TO INDIVIDUAL VISA SCHEME Macau Business

According to a spokesperson, the Macau government is unaware of any changes to the individual visa scheme for mainlanders visiting Macau.  The spokesperson said so after the Hong Kong government announced a freeze on expansion of the scheme.  The scheme gives citizens of 49 mainland cities visas to travel to Macau or Hong Kong as individuals rather than as members of tour groups, who travel on collective visas.  Hong Kong chief executive Leung Chun-ying said the central government had agreed on a temporary freeze on the number of cities covered by the scheme.
