Hengqin Port to further simplify vehicles customs clearance between Macao and Guangdong
Hengqin will further simplify vehicle customs clearance between Macao and Guangdong and accelerate the implementation of the general plan for or building the Guangdong-Macao In-depth Cooperation Zone in Hengqin.
It was mentioned in a recent meeting between the Executive Committee of the Zone and Macao SAR on custom clearance in Hengqin Port. In early September, China's central authorities issued a general plan for building the Zone.
According to the meeting, a customs system known as "joint inspection and one-time release” will be adopted for vehicles traveling between Guangdong and Macao via Hengqin Port. The second phase of Hengqin Port construction is underway and is scheduled to be finished by the end of 2022, when Hengqin Port will take the one-stop vehicle clearance model.
Meanwhile, the plan blueprinted that Macao Light Rapid Transit will extend to the Zone and connect with Zhuhai's rail transit system. The line will go through and under Hengqin Port, and construction is already underway.
