PLEASE NOTE: Only travelers from Mainland China, Hong Kong and Taiwan can visit Macao.
The Macao Health Code is a required health document wherein travelers entering Macao must declare their health condition. It was launched by the Macao SAR Government as an effort to stem COVID-19 spread in the community. The Health Code works as a system that classifies the traveler’s health status in different colors: red, yellow, and green.
WHO CAN ENTER MACAO WITH THIS DOCUMENT
All travelers who want to enter Macao need to obtain this document, which will issue the holder with a color. Travelers with a green code will be allowed to enter Macao without quarantine. Foreign travelers with a red code will be denied entry and Macao residents with a red code will be transferred to a public hospital on arrival.
OBTAIN THE MACAO HEALTH CODE
All visitors must complete a form with their personal information and answer questions about symptoms, COVID-19-patient contact history, and their travel history within the past 21 days.
At least one negative coronavirus test result is required to enter the country. Check out the testing FAQ below to find out when you need to get tested prior to travel.
DISPLAY THE DOCUMENT
Once you submit your online form, we’ll send the Macao Health Code to your email prior to your trip so you can show it to the immigration officials when you get to the airport. As part of your document, you’ll receive a QR code that you need to show to the authorities at the port of entry.

Required Documents to Apply

Macao Health Code asks applicants three things: symptoms, Covid-19 patient contact history and travel history. The new code consists of three colors: red, yellow and green.
Possession of a Macao Health Code does not provide automatic right of entry for the holder into the country.
