Important Travel Tip
If you enter Macau or Hong Kong from mainland China that’s considered leaving China. Say you are planning to go back to China after your Macau or Hong Kong trip, this is considered a separate entry into China which requires you to have another entry visa into China or to hold a valid multiple entry visa.
