WHAT DOES THE GREEN COLOR OF THE MACAO HEALTH CODE MEAN?

Green means that the individual is not a formerly or currently confirmed or suspected coronavirus case. If you get the green color, it means you are allowed to enter Macao without having to quarantine.

WHAT DOES THE YELLOW HEALTH CODE MEAN?

Yellow is provided to any person who indicates that he or she has been in contact with confirmed COVID-19 patients, or someone who indicates that he or she has come down with a fever, cough, sore throat, and/or shortness of breath. If you’re given the yellow QR health code, then you will have to quarantine as indicated by the Macao Health Authorities, check your temperature at least twice a day, and try to avoid crowded places.

WHAT DOES THE RED MACAO HEALTH CODE MEAN?

The red QR code is given to a certain or presumed coronavirus case, or to a person that has been in close contact with confirmed COVID-19 patients, including people who confirm in the health declaration that they have in fact been in unsafe contact with a confirmed coronavirus case within the past 14 days. The red Macao Health Code color is also provided to a person who registers that within the past 14 days he or she has traveled to countries whose visit requires quarantine and medical observation. Red also implies that the person is banned from accessing public administration premises, casinos, and other private facilities like banks.

Visitants whose color code is red will be denied entry to Macau whereas residents will be directly transferred to the public hospitals for medical examinations and possible hospitalization.
