The Government anticipates a joint boundary clearance system – for people travelling between Macao and Zhuhai via the Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macao Bridge – will be in place by year end, coinciding with the expected launch of the facility.
The joint boundary clearance system would be available only for Macao residents registered to use e-Channel services, the Secretary for Security, Mr Wong Sio Chak, told reporters on Wednesday (26 April).
Under the proposed system, Macao residents going to Zhuhai – via the Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macao Bridge – would need to use only the mainland Entry Permit for Hong Kong and Macao Residents. For their trip home, Macao residents need to present their Macao identity card to complete boundary clearance.
The Government expected more details of the system would be finalised next month, during a visit to Macao of a delegation from the Bureau of Exit and Entry Administration of the Ministry of Public Security, he added.
The proposal was part of the results achieved in discussions between the Macao Government and authorities in Beijing and in Zhuhai, Mr Wong said.View gallery
