Visitor arrivals in Macao continue to show an upward trend in recent days. A total of 191,828 visitor arrivals were registered over the past week (9 – 15 April) with an average daily volume of 27,404 visitors, which surged by 111.7% compared with the average daily visitor arrivals during the Spring Festival Golden Week (12,947). In addition, Macao welcomed 34,252 visitor arrivals on 16 April (Friday), the highest daily record of visitor arrivals since the start of the pandemic. Hotel establishments saw an average occupancy rate of 61.0% between 9 and 15 April, a rise of 12.7 percentage points compared with that of the Spring Festival Golden Week (48.3%).
The figures revealed a steady upward trend in visitor arrivals recently. As the pandemic situation remains stable in the Mainland and Macao, Macao Government Tourism Office (MGTO) seizes the opportunity brought by the reinstatement of travel permit issuance for Mainland residents to Macao, to unfold an array of online and offline promotions tailored for the Mainland market and continuously spotlight Macao as a healthy, safe and quality destination, striving to stimulate a gradual rebound in visitor arrivals and steady recovery of the tourism industry.
