Four types of vehicles allowed to cross Macau-Zhuhai border

The Guangdong authorities have recently tightened measures governing arrivals from around the world, resulting in cross-border vehicles not being allowed to enter Zhuhai from Macau by land. During the early phase of the border measures, only vehicles crucial to the daily operations of Macau were permitted across the border. Other business owners and operators were not given the same access. The mainland authorities have recently clarified that only trucks, emergency vehicles, funeral vehicles, as well as single-plated vehicles accessing Hengqin and the Cross-border Industrial Area are allowed to depart Macau for Zhuhai. Passengers should alight to proceed through border control at the immigration hall. The authorities did not announce length of time the measures would be in effect.
