China to resume Macau package tours, e-visas
Macau Chief Executive Ho Iat Seng announced package tours from mainland China will restart to the SAR in November.
Additionally, e-visas will restart from late October or early November.
Both measures will help revive the tourism-reliant economy.
The package tours will be available from Guangdong, Fujian, Jiangsu Zhejiang and Shanghai.
It is hoped it will increase inbound daily visitor numbers to 40,000 from the current 20,000, Ho said.
