Crossings progressively go up at Gongbei Checkpoint


Updated: 2020-08-06

Daily traveler volume at Gongbei Checkpoint exceeded 200,000 Aug 4 for the first time since February, rebounding to half of last year's average under relaxed policies at the Zhuhai-Macao border.

Most border crossers are non-resident Chinese Macao commuters who live in Zhuhai. Numbers will gradually return to normal, said Zhou Conglin, spokesperson for the Gongbei Frontier Inspection Station.

In response, Gongbei Checkpoint has opened an adequate number of inspection channels, assigned extra staff, and coordinates with Macao frontier inspection authorities to ensure smooth flow amid well-executed epidemic prevention and control measures.

The Macao SAR government eased quarantine measures on July 13 so that Macao-bound mainland residents were no longer subject to 14-day mandatory medical observation upon arrival. Likewise, as of July 15, those entering Guangdong Province from Macao were not quarantined for two weeks.

Each traveler must show a health record with a negative coronavirus test result upon arrival at border checkpoints. Confirmed or suspected COVID-19 patients, close contacts, ones with fevers or respiratory symptoms, and those who have traveled offshore within 14 days are excluded from the provision, however.
