    Hi! Im a Filipino passport holder working in Macau for two months now. I can stay until Oct 2014 and my blue card will be released on August 8, 2014. Just want to ask what would happen if i resign or the employer terminates the contract before the contract ends? can I got back to Macau again after some time?

    • mike :7/29/2014 9:47:00 PM

      May I know what type of visa are you holding now? Anyway, before your blue card getting expire, I suggest you apply for a visa in Macao Immigration Department. With a legal stay permit or proof, you can stay in macao till Oct. Otherwise, you will be denied to go back to Macao later for your overstay.

    I am Nepalese passport holder now working in Macau but I want do business there can I ..? If can what is the idea..?

    • Susan :7/29/2014 9:33:00 PM

      Yes, you can do business there. If you would stay in Macao longer than your job contract duration, you'd better extend your visa or apply for a new one in Macao Immigration Department.

    • Carmen :7/29/2014 2:35:00 AM

      If you have already booked the returning tickets, you are suggested to show it to make sure that you can enter Macau smoothly. It is uncertain that they will ask your for seeing your return tickets.

      You can do it in Japan or in Beijing, China. Which country do you come from? As I know, many countries' citizens can ge visa on arrival when you reach the Macau's airport.

    • Peter :6/14/2014 5:01:00 AM

      I'm afraid not. There is no direct flight from India to Macau. Then I suggest you fly to HK instead. Then take a ferry at Skypier near HKIA to Macau!

    • joanah :7/16/2014 10:27:00 AM

      thanks for that information.i want to ask also if the macau immigration will ask for my return ticket..im afraid macau immigration might be super strict.

    I am from Nepal traveling to GUANGZHOU on 04 aug I have visa for GUANGZHOU . Can i visit Macau or how can i get visa for Macao from GUANGZHOU. Is it possible ? Can i get arrival visa from GUANGZHOU when travel from Sea because i need to visit Macao from GUANGZHOU.

    • Lisa :7/5/2014 5:35:00 AM

      No, VOA is not vailable for Nepal passport holders, so you'd better apply for a visa in advance or apply for one in Guangzhou through an agent, in which case the application form should be sent to Macau Immigration Department!
