Nucleic acid ‘negative’ test result issued no more than 24 hours earlier to be required in order to leave Macao

Individuals wishing to enter any boundary crossing checkpoint building in Macao, intending to leave the city, will after the stroke of midnight on 6 October be required to present a nucleic acid test certificate – issued within 24 hours of intended departure – proving they are ‘negative’ for COVID-19 infection.

The latest step shows the Macao Special Administrative Region Government is highly responsible in terms of preventing any risk of the virus passing from Macao to other cities.

The new measure is contained in Executive Order 144/2021 published today in the Macao SAR Gazette.

According to the Executive Order, the Health Bureau has the authority to exempt certain people from abiding with the measure. Those eligible for exemption include: people dealing with matters serving Macao’s public interest, particularly ones relating to disease prevention and control, and emergency rescue; those ensuring the proper operation of public services in the community; and those involved with meeting the basic day-to-day needs of the Macao public.
