    Hi,I'm from mainland, China. I have the Chinese passport, but I'm a student in a UK university, having a student visa(one year). Do I need to apply for a Macao visa if I stay in Macao for 6 days and go back to the UK immediately? Thank you.

    • Simon :12/10/2016 1:57:00 AM

      No, you don’t need it. You can go there freely and stay for not exceeding 7 days.

    Hi! I need some clarifications. My husband is presently working in macau for almost a year now.He was advise to have finger printing for his bluecard nextweek. Im worried if that finger printing is for renewal of bluecard or termination of his work permit. Because i read one time from some workers there in macau that she went to the embassy for finger printing for cancellation of her woking permit.if the employer will cancel the bluecard.does it necessary to go to embassy to surrender/finger printing for cacellation of the working permit. Thank you.

    • Gary :11/12/2016 4:22:00 AM

      Grey, if your employer told him to have fingerprints to renew his blue card, Ii don’t think there will be any problem. Just relax! It may be necessary to leave fingerprints at the immigration department if one wants to work in Macau.

    Hi, does Macau grants any kind of visa known as e-visa or VOA like Vietnam VOA?

    • Bruce :11/1/2016 4:42:00 AM

      Linda, yes, Macau grants VOA, but passport holders of Bangladesh, Nepal, Nigeria, Pakistan, Sri Lanka and Vietnam cannot get VOA there.

      Sahidur, if you just visit Macau, Macau entry permit is enough. You don’t need to apply for entry permit for mainland PRC.

    • Gloria :8/12/2016 4:57:00 AM

      Navin, based on what I know, there is no such kind of rule. You can consult with the company and ask about the reason.

    Hi there, I was issued Macau blue card about 3years ago. Recently working here in Canada. Is possible that my friend will get and do my Macau blue card cancellation? Thanks.

    • May :8/12/2016 4:53:00 AM

      Ely, you can entrust your friend to go there and cancel your blue card, but I cannot assure if it can be done successfully.

    hello sir gud day, just wanna ask, what if my 2 kids overstayed in macau for a year, what are the possible sanctions for us?my kids are 10 and 8 yrs of age. we have applied twice for their extension but twice denied, so we have no choice so we can take care of them until they reach high school, till they manage to take care of themselves.actually they were overstayed already of 3 days as of now.

    • Richard :5/28/2016 2:59:00 AM

      You should report their overstay to Immigration department as soon as possible, and then they need to pay the fine of MOP 500 per day. After that, they can apply for the exit pass to leave Macau.

    Hello i am Pakistani and i have a business visa double entry. i need a Macau entry permit just for 2 days to exit from china and then come back to mainland PRC. Do i need entry permit in advance or i have to buy ticket and they will give me entry permit upon arrival. If i need entry permit in advance then how many days it will take?

    • Nancy :5/27/2016 11:58:00 PM

      Lucky, you need to apply for an entry permit to go to Macau and you should apply for it in advance. If you post your application to Macau immigration department to apply for it, usually, 3 weeks are needed. And if you apply for it from Beijing Office of Macau SAR government and your application is processed there, it will takes less time of 7 working days or so. You can contact with the office and confirm that. Call: (0086)10-58138010
