      I'm afraid you cannot get a vsa on arrival for Macau travel. So you have no choice but to apply for one in your country in dvance.

    Good day! I'm from the Philippines and my family and I are going to Hong Kong this April and are going to stay there for 7 days. We do not have any form of chinese visa. Since Macau is a visa-free region, is it possible to enter Macau and stay there for a day and then re-enter Hong Kong again before going back to the Philippines? Your help is much appreciated..

    • Nadia :2/11/2015 9:28:00 PM

      Yes, it is posible. Philippine passport holders are allowed to stay in Hk and Macau for some days visa free. It would be enough to prepare return air ticket and hotel reservation voucher for either of them.

    Im working now in macau,i have 1 year working visa,what if i resign,can i still find work?am i not gonna be banned?or am i going to have bad record?and can i still look for job after i resignd.thank u

    • Niana :1/19/2015 9:32:00 PM

      Yes, you can still find another job. As long as your Work Permit is not expire, it is legal to stay in Macau. Accordingly, you won't be banned or have any bad record. Take it easy!Anyway, I have to remind you that once you find a new job, ask your company to show corresponding paperwork so that you can apply for a new valid Work Permit.

    I heard that, after summit all the document to apply for the blue card, can get a receipt or supporting document to start work while awaiting for the blue card in processing, it's true or not? if yes, how long to get the receipt or supporting document?

    • Jenny :1/7/2015 1:00:00 AM

      Yes, you are right. You will get a receipt to assit you for working. Usually, it will be got after you submit the related documents.

    • Lisa :1/7/2015 12:51:00 AM

      What is your age?If you are under 18 years old and want to exit Philinppine alone, you need to have a DSWD Travel Clearance; otherwise, there is no special requirements to exit Philippine as I know. Or you can contact your country's immigration for confirming.

    I'm here in Macao as a tourist. I apply a job In an agency. They only ask me the name of my parents as a requirements before they pass my application. Is that enough? How should I know if my application is already receive in the immigration

    • Ruby :1/7/2015 1:57:00 AM

      It is normal to ask your parents' names. You can call the local PSB to ask your application process.

    Hi,Im from Malaysia, I plan to go to Macao from Hong Kong. What's the requirement needed to enter to Macao? Is it true we need pocket money around 5000 HKD? Can we have less than that? Can we show that amount true bank statement?

    • Jimmy :1/7/2015 1:08:00 AM

      Hi, Norah. As far as I know, there is no such kind of information about the money. In general, the more, the better. You can take less and show the amount true bank statement. The bank statement is to make sure that your money can cover all your expenses in Macau. If you have your round flight tickets and hotel bookings done, money less than 5000HKD may not stop you to enter Macau.

    Hi I worked in Macau for about 3yrs in two companies but I was terminated on my last job and they forward it to the police for record purposes. They told me I can come back, but after 6months but they didnt say if I could still get another job there if ever. I want to know if I still have a chance to have a job there eventhough I already have a police record. Thanks in Advance.

    • Tina :1/7/2015 2:00:00 AM

      It is possible for you to get a job, but it is not assured that you can get the work permit in Macau due to the police record.
